Winter Weather and getting your Car Ready

 

winter

During the winter weather, you will want to make sure your vehicle is in the best operating condition possible. There are several things you will want to inspect on it. When you check the vehicle and get it ready for winter, you can help it to last longer over time. If there are any issues with the vehicle, always make sure to contact us as soon as possible. Bringing the vehicle in for any problems can help you save time, money, and stress in the long run as well.

Tires and Winter Weather

You will want to make sure that you carefully inspect the tires. Each tire should be at the correct air pressure. In the winter, the cold temperatures can cause bead leaks or a loss of air in the tires. This can make driving difficult and decrease the safety of it. If the tires are under inflated, then they might blow out as you drive. Tires that are over inflated can also pick up any object or nail you drive over. While inspecting the air pressure, also make sure that you check the tread wear of each tire. If the tread wear is less than ideal, then you will notice poor handling on the road.

 

Besides the tires, you will want to check the fluid levels of the vehicle. Each fluid should be at the indicated amount on the reservoir for the vehicle. If a fluid level is decreasing significantly, then you should schedule an appointment to bring it in. We can check for leaks or damage that is causing the issue. Also check the oil level of the vehicle often. Make sure to bring it in when an oil change is needed. This will help to keep the engine working smoothly and efficiently. If the oil is old, it will cause the engine to work hard, and cause it to wear out sooner as well.
