Preventative Maintenance Tips

Cold weather can be rough on your car’s engine, so it’s important to make sure that your vehicle is properly prepared to deal with the colder temperatures. Performing a full vehicle check-up when fall sets in is a great way to avoid major hassles down the road. You’ll want to have a professional technician check your battery, all connections and wires, belts, hoses, and filters. You’ll also want to check all your fluid levels including oil, antifreeze, power steering fluid, brake fluid, transmission fluid, and windshield wiper fluid.

You’ll also want to check your tires before winter weather sets in. Look for signs of uneven tread wear which can indicate an alignment problem. You’ll also want to check the tread depth on your tires to make sure that they still have enough traction to help you on slick and icy roads. Always make sure that your tires are filled to the proper pressure levels; this not only gives better traction but driving with under-inflated tires can also hurt your fuel economy.

It’s also important that you check to make sure that all of your vehicle’s signals and lights are working properly. With winter comes daylight savings time and decreased light, meaning you’ll likely be spending more time driving at night. It’s very important that you always have proper signaling devices and headlights.
