Winter can be Brutal on your Car

The winter can cause several issues for the condition of your vehicle. You will want to check the tires regularly in the winter. As it gets colder out, you will notice a drop in air pressure for the tires. By checking them on a regular basis, you will be aware when the tires are having issues. If the tires are under inflated or over inflated, then problems are more likely to arrive. When a tire is low on a regular basis, it could mean that there is a permanent leak in the tire. This should be inspected as soon as you are aware of it. Doing so will help keep the tires in the most ideal condition for when you drive.

Check Fluids

Make sure that you also check and top off the fluid levels in your vehicle. This should include the oil, transmission fluid, and even the brake fluid of the vehicle. When the fluid levels are low, you will notice a decrease in the efficiency and performance. You will also be aware of it if a dashboard warning light illuminates. Another sign of an issue with the fluids of the vehicle is any puddle that is under the vehicle after you move. Noticing this can indicate a leak or crack under the hood. Make sure to contact us to schedule an appointment as soon as possible.

Winter weather care

Checking the oil should be done on a regular basis based on how many miles you have driven. If the oil is different colors and looks like sludge, make sure to have an oil change done as soon as possible. The oil helps keep the engine operating and working like new. When the oil becomes old, the vehicle is harder to operate. You will also notice when the oil needs to be changed if you see the dashboard warning light illuminate.
