Winter Inspection

Winter Inspection

1. Tires: Your tires may be one of the most important parts of your vehicle winter inspection. When air temperature drops, so does the pressure in your tires. As it begins to get colder out, be sure to check that your tires are inflated to the correct levels. Tires that don’t have the right amount of pressure can cause a range of issues. Bring your car into our Service Center so we can make sure your tires are ready for the winter!

2. Fluids: This includes your engine oil, gas oil, antifreeze fluid, and windshield wiper fluid. It is important to get the levels of each of these fluids checked before the freezing temperatures hit. By keeping your gas level above a half tank, you can keep your gas lines from freezing up. Antifreeze should be cycled and replenished every couple years. Lastly, your regular windshield wiper fluid should be replaced with a winter formula that contains antifreeze.

3. Battery:Your car battery is one of the parts of your car that is likely to give up in freezing temperatures. To make sure your battery doesn’t lose power, have one of our technicians perform a test on it to make sure it is working properly. Your vehicle’s battery provides energy to start the engine of the car, plus it gives power to accessories when the engine is not running. Cold temperatures can affect your car’s battery.

4. Brakes:Having your brakes working well is important for the cold weather and icy roads. GM Brake pads are equipped with wear indicators that produce a squealing noise when the brakes are almost worn out. This is one way to know if your brakes need replacing. Get your brakes checked out for the cold weather.
