Winterization Checkup Basics
When winter is imminent, many motorists begin winterizing their vehicles to prepare them for the cold, ice, and snow. Winterization involves checking and changing many different components.
Coolant should be changed to help ensure that liquids do not freeze and prevent the engine from starting. Likewise, the starting and charging system should be checked. It is important to keep in mind that an old battery is more prone to fail in the winter, because cold weather slows the chemical reaction required to generate electricity.
Other items that may be checked include the windshield wiper blades and tires. During winter, increased varieties of precipitation hinder visibility. As such, it is imperative to have working blades.
During winter driving conditions, underperforming tires can be especially dangerous. Some motorists switch their regular tires for snow tires, which tend to handle winter driving conditions better than regular tires. Ultimately, during pre-winter maintenance, our service staff will make sure that your vehicle is prepared to handle the tough winter conditions.
