Block heaters can be beneficial for your vehicle, especially if you park outside in the winter. During the colder months, the temperature will drop. This can result in your battery being affected. It will also lead to the car turning over or starting slower than it otherwise should. You will want to make sure that the vehicle is inspected regularly. Along with this, you will want to have the battery checked as well. We can test the battery and the cold cranking amps of it. Doing so will allow us to know what the condition the battery is in. If the battery is old or not holding a charge well, a new battery is beneficial.
Benefits for your Vehicle
Parking in a garage provides several benefits for your vehicle. It will most importantly help keep the battery warm so the vehicle can start with ease. If you cannot part the vehicle inside, then think about investing in a block heater for your car. This will plug into the front of the car near the grill, and help keep the vehicle warm under the hood. Doing so will then help the vehicle to start easier as well in the winter. If you are not sure what block heater to purchase, or if your vehicle is right for one, you can contact us.
Besides checking the battery and how the vehicle starts, also remember to check all the fluid levels of the vehicle. Doing so will help the car run efficiently. If a fluid level is low, make sure to replace it and top it off. This will help your vehicle to be safe and reliable when you are on the road this winter. Also remember to bring your vehicle in for regular oil changes so that the engine can continue to operate smoothly. If you are not sure when the oil should be changed, make sure to contact us.
