Keeping the Vehicle Maintained During Winter

Having a well working vehicle is important. This should include making sure the parts and components are working efficiently. Make sure to bring the vehicle in for regular maintenance inspections. If you notice anything out of the norm, make sure to schedule an appointment to bring the vehicle in as soon as possible.


You will want to make sure to check the tires on a regular basis. Inspect each one for the correct amount of air pressure in them. If you are not sure how much air should be in each tire, make sure to consult the vehicle owner’s manual. You can also look at the inside doorjamb on the driver’s side. If you notice the tires become low, often, it could be a sign of a leak in them. Make sure to bring the vehicle in and we can inspect the tires for any signs of damage. The tread wear should also be inspected on each tire. Having the correct amount of tread is important because it helps the vehicle to grip the surface of the road if it is wet or slick. You can test the amount of tread by taking a penny and placing it upside down in the groove. If you can see the top of Lincoln’s head, then there is not enough tread and the tire should be replaced.


Also remember to top off the fluids in your vehicle. These are important because they help the vehicle run at top performance levels and lubricate the moving parts of the engine. The oil should be changed on a regular basis as well. This will allow fresh clean oil to replace the dirty old oil. If you are not sure how often to change the oil, make sure to contact us and we can advise you on the recommended oil change schedule. We can also change the oil to help keep your vehicle operating effectively and efficiently this winter.
