Required to start an engine in cold weather, a fully charged battery is a must. It is recommended to have your battery tested to ensure it has optimal charge, and it can prove beneficial to check your battery cables and their connections to ensure they are secure and free of corrosion.
Belts and Hoses
Your drive belt and timing belt ensure that major components of your vehicle run smoothly and effectively. Be sure to check both sides of these items for any signs of wear or fraying. Likewise, check your engine hoses for leaks, cracks, and loose clamps.
Brakes and Tires
Your brakes are one of the most important safety features on your vehicle, and during the winter, they are more important than ever on icy road conditions. During your routine car maintenance appointment, ask your technician to check all major brake components to ensure they are all in good shape and working order.
Checking all of your fluids levels will ensure you don’t get stranded on the side of the road this winter. Be sure to have your coolant and antifreeze levels checked, and also make sure that your transmission and power steering fluid levels are appropriate.
During the slushy winter days ahead, you’re sure to need fully functioning windshield wipers to see clearly as you’re driving. Ensuring your wiper blades are in good condition and that your windshield wiper fluid is full can help you avoid impaired vision when you need it most.
