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)
