Preventive Winter Auto Maintenance Tasks for Better Safety

Preventive Winter Auto Maintenance Tasks for Better Safety

Preventive Winter Auto Maintenance Tasks for Better SafetyThroughout the winter months, inclement weather can create significant safety hazards, making it very important to prepare your vehicle for challenging conditions. At Phil and Son Auto Repair, our local mechanics have extensive experience with preparing vehicles for winter driving.

Important Types of Preventive Winter Auto Maintenance

Because the wintertime brings slick roads and poor visibility, it's extra important that your brakes are functioning optimally. When you bring your car to our shop for a brake inspection, we'll thoroughly examine the whole braking system and make sure that you can trust it to keep you as safe as possible. If any work needs to be done, we'll explain it to you, and then can expertly complete it. And to mitigate reduced visibility, it's a good idea to replace old wiper blades. For winter driving, heavy-duty blades are a smart choice. You can also help to ensure that your field of vision stays clear by getting your defroster/heater checked.

During the winter months, you'll be regularly driving with your windows up, making it especially important that your exhaust system isn't leaking. We'll inspect your whole exhaust system to make sure that hazardous fumes are being safely routed to your tailpipe.

It's also a good idea to get your battery checked. Frigid weather can cause automotive batteries to lose 30% to 60% of their power. By getting your battery checked, you can be confident that it isn't at increased risk of dying and leaving you stranded in freezing conditions.

Another important task is to get your antifreeze checked. With the right level of uncontaminated antifreeze, your engine is much more likely to stay at a healthy temperature.
