Winterizing Your Vehicle

Winterizing Your Vehicle

Winter can be brutal on your car, causing expensive damage to the engine and other components. So when winter comes around, it's essential to take precautions to protect your vehicle from the cold. Here are some winter driving tips for winterizing your car, so you can keep it running all winter smoothly.

1. Tires Change

One of the best ways to help your car handle winter conditions is by making sure you have winter tires installed on your vehicle. Winter tires are specifically designed for cold weather, making them excellent at handling snowy or icy conditions.

2. Oil Change

Oil protects your car's internal components, but it's even more important in cold weather. Motor oil gets thicker when it's cold, which helps prevent damage to your engine. In addition, colder temperatures make it harder for engines to heat up and lubricate themselves, so you should get an oil change well before winter arrives.

3. Air filter

One of the easiest ways to help your car perform at its best in cold weather is to ensure that it's running clean. A clean air filter allows more air into your engine, reducing strain and increasing efficiency.

4. Wipers

Make sure your windshield wipers are in good condition. If they're streaking or skipping across your glass, it's time for a replacement. Winter wipers' safety prep can make a big difference in your visibility during bad weather.

5. Brakes

You should regularly inspect your vehicle's brakes and make sure they are correctly adjusted and in good working order. If you feel like you need to push down harder than usual on your brake pedal, take it to our Service Centre for inspection immediately. You can contact us at Metro Chrysler or schedule a service appointment.

6. Fluids

A mixture of antifreeze and water called coolant provides a layer of protection between your engine and outside temperatures. Keeping coolant levels at optimum is essential for winter driving safety.
