Winter Maintenance Tips

WINTER IS HERE!

Cold temperatures, freezing liquids, dry conditions all effect your automobile. The top priorities on your winter maintenance checklist should include:

  • Heater Check – You don’t want to be cold when you are driving. Let’s make sure your heating system is fully operational.
  • Battery Check – Don’t get stranded from a dead battery that can’t take the cold. Summer heat damages batteries, winter cold finishes them off.
  • Windshield Wiper Check – Don’t be caught off guard by rain and snow. This month we have an offer for buy one set, get one set FREE NAPA PROformance Wiper Blades.
  • Fluids Check – Windshield Wiper fluid, oil, anti-freeze levels; belts and hoses.

Our Maintenance Oil Change includes a full inspection of these items and more. A fresh oil change is always a good start to winter maintenance.

Fall Maintenance Essentials

Fall is here and there are some important maintenance tasks that you need to do on your vehicle. As the seasons change, weather can effect the performance of your vehicle. Some of the basics you should pay attention to include:

  1. Battery Check. Summer heat is usually the cause of battery damage, but you may not realize it until it is too late. Get your battery checked as part of the season change.
  2. Windshield Wipers. The dry summer may have zapped the life out of your wiper blades, get them checked and replaced before a surprise autumn storm makes you realize how bad they are.
  3. Tire Pressure Check. You tire pressure goes down because cold air is more condensed. For every 10 degree drop in temperature, your tires go down by one pound of pressure. (1 PSI)

Get these items checked and more during your next maintenance visit to Dearholt AutoCare. Call us today to schedule your next service.

Do I need a Brake Fluid Service?

BRAKE FLUID FLUSH

Why do I need a Brake Fluid Service?

This two stage service consists of 1) Vacuum Flush to remove contaminated fluid 2) Brake bleed assures fluid is free of moisture and air.

Did you know?

Brake fluid naturally absorbs moisture and that moisture is a leading cause in brake failures. Additional moisture will reduce the boiling point and may cause your brakes to become sluggish or non-responsive.

Most manufacturers recommend changing your brake fluid about every 30,000 miles — approximately every two years. DON’T OPEN THE BRAKE FLUID CAP! Introduction of dirt and additional moisture can happen easily if you are not careful. The reservoir should be transparent so you can see how dirty the fluid is just by looking. But fluid color is not the only indicator and you may not be able to visibly see corrupted fluid.

Some of the benefits of a fluid flush include:

  • Extends life of the Brake System
  • Better stopping power
  • Better power braking
  • Decreases braking distance
  • Reduces system wear an corrosion
coolant flush

Coolant Flush Basics

Coolant Flush

You need to have your engine cooling system flushed occasionally to protect, de-scale and replace your coolant/anti-freeze. This is vital to maintaining quality engine cooling levels and protecting your vehicle from summer heat and winter cold. Over time and extreme temperature, your coolant begins to break down. It begins to leave deposits. If not maintained, the deposits can clog and restrict flow, may plug the radiator or heater core. An overheating event can destroy your engine, crack your head or block. These are expensive repairs that could be avoided with a simple preventative flush service.

  • Coolant is extracted.
  • Then your system is flushed with our proprietary solution to remove dirt, rust and build up.
  • Your system gets flushed of all the impurities and build up and fluids.
  • We replace with high quality coolant.
