During the winter, always make sure that your vehicle is brought in for regular maintenance inspections. When this happens, we will do a bumper to bumper inspection to make sure everything is working properly. If there are any signs of issues or a problem, we will be able to fix them. Make sure that you do not hear any odd noises or sounds from the vehicle. If you do, you will want to schedule an appointment immediately. This way, you can help to make your vehicle safe and reliable on the road.
Check the tires regularly for any signs of issues. The air pressure going low is a common problem during the winter months. Every ten degree drop in temperature will result with air loss in the tire. Check all the tires, especially before any long road trips. If you are not sure what the proper amount of air should be, make sure to contact us, or look in the owner’s manual. Along with the air pressure, check the tread wear of the tires. If they are wearing unevenly, rotating the tires can help.
You will also want to remember to check all the fluids of the vehicle, even the windshield wiper fluid. If one is going low, it may be caused by a leak in the system. Schedule an appointment so we can look for the source of the issue. Having it checked as soon as you notice it will help save a lot of time, money, and stress in the long run. You may also notice if you have a leak if there is a puddle under your vehicle after it has been parked for some time. Remember to follow the recommended oil change schedule as well. This will help keep your engine in the best condition possible as you drive this winter.
