Tis the season of properly caring for you vehicle in the colder months. The cool temperature can wreak havoc on our vehicles this time of year. Even though we are in South Louisiana, it is always important to know how to care for your vehicle properly when the colder air does hit. Here are a few simple tips to keep your vehicle in good working order this winter.
When was the last time you inspected your tires? Your tire pressure must be properly inflated to guarantee that you will have the best traction during your daily commutes. Not to mention, poorly inflated tires are often jeopardized during wet and icy roads. The tire pressure in tires will likely drop as the air gets colder, so read your owner’s manual to find out the perfect air temperature for your tires.
Your vehicle’s antifreeze has to be just right! Ideally it should be a 50-50 mix of coolant and water inside of your radiator. Having this perfect ratio will prevent the mixture from freezing at colder temperatures. You can easily check the status of the mixture yourself with a low-cost antifreeze tester.
Knowing these few tips can prolong the life of your vehicle. Safety is a top priority when driving during the winter months, so make sure your vehicle is prepared this season. The weather is ever-changing here in Louisiana, so be prepared and get ahead with your winter vehicle maintenance. Schedule your service appointment with us today!
