Important Cold Weather Vehicle Maintenance Tips
Winter weather comes year after year and we all find ourselves having to drive in those frigid winter months. With that said the team here at Auto Clinic of Franklin want to remind all our valued clients to engage in cold weather vehicle maintenance before the winter season arrives. There are a variety of helpful tips you can use to winter proof your car that we have listed here below.
To begin with, you want to check the anti-freeze in your car. Antifreeze makes its way into your radiator and is very important to your vehicle. Be sure that it is at appropriate levels at the start of the winter season.
Next, you want to be certain that your windshield wipers are in tip top shape to allow the quick and easy removal of snow, rain, salt and even sand that gets onto your windshield during winter driving. If they are not performing at peak levels, make sure you replace them. Also, be sure to check the level of your windshield wiper fluid as well.
Further, you want to take time out to inspect your tires to ensure that they have sufficient tire depth and traction so as to avoid any slipping and sliding in foul weather. Continuing on with important steps to take we want to remind all our clients to check the battery terminals on your car. When the temperatures drop your car typically needs a whole lot more power so you want to be sure that your battery is able to handle the extra workload.
Be sure to check the engine oil in your car as well as your brake pads, again to ensure that they are performing at peak levels in anticipation of the much colder driving temperatures. It is also important that you check the status and condition of your spark plugs as well.
These important steps will help to ensure that your vehicle is up for the winter weather driving challenge and will also help provide protection for your vehicle from the cold weather elements. These cold weather vehicle maintenance tips not only contribute to the well being of your vehicle, but also contribute greatly to the safety of you and all your passengers as well.
