Important Types of Winter Auto Maintenance

When driving conditions are poor, it's all the more important that your brakes are working perfectly. By getting to the shop for an inspection and any necessary brake maintenance, you'll be taking an important measure in keeping yourself and your passengers safer. Another important safety task is to ensure that you'll have optimal visibility during the months where there's less daylight and more bad weather. This is a good time to get new wiper blades. For winter driving, heavy-duty wiper blades are a popular option. Also wiper fluid should be filled to the correct level. Another way to help ensure safe visibility is to get your defroster/heater checked. Along with visibility, this is also important so that you stay safely warm when the thermometer fully plummets.

During the wintertime, you'll be consistently driving with your windows up. For this reason, it's especially important that your car doesn't have an exhaust leak. At our shop, we can inspect your exhaust system to make sure hazardous fumes are being safely sent away.

And before the lowest of the low temperatures arrive, you should get your battery checked. Icy weather can be brutal on a car battery. By getting your battery checked, you can be confident that it isn't likely to fail and leave you stuck in frigid weather.

It's also important to be sure you're driving with the correct amount of clean antifreeze. This will help to prevent your engine from becoming too cold or too hot.
