Things To Do To Your Car Before Winter

October 25th, 2019 by

Driving in cold temperatures can be very dangerous if you don’t update or check the things that you need to. Come down to Midstate Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in Barre Vermont and we can help you with any of the following.

1.Change your washer fluid and windshield wipers

Regular washer fluid will not cut it in freezing temperatures, so make sure you get a good washer fluid with an antifreeze solution. If your windshield wipers are starting to look a little haggard, it is very important to put new ones on before a huge snowstorm hits. You should replace them every 6-12 months.

2.Change your oil 

Changing your oil is very important, especially before the winter months, and there is a possibility you may need to change the type of oil all together to handle the cold temperatures. You will need a thinner oil in the winter.

3.Check your battery

You always want to make sure that the battery is functioning properly before winter because cold temperatures mean your engines need more current from the battery to start.

4.Check your tires 

You may want to get new snow tires if you see that yours are worn out. If you are frequently driving in snowy conditions that is a great thing to invest in.

5.Get a basic tune-up

It’s good to get a tune-up every 30,000 miles, but if it is likely to be in the winter, it’s good to get one early – right before winter. Midstate Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in Barre Vermont can help you will that. Call us at 802-479-0586 to schedule an appointment before the cold temperatures hit!
