Winter is definitely here!
Still, many people will easily overlook the maintenance of their car. Driving in extreme snow or a blizzard needs preparation and patience. By preparing your car, for the harsh weather conditions that await us all, Everything Auto NY can help car owners avoid any unplanned emergencies or accidents that are quite common during the winter months.
Here are some great auto care tips to make sure your car is in great shape all winter long –
Keep the Battery in Peak Condition
During the colder months, the car’s battery is the most affected part on the car. The car battery uses more energy to operate during cold weather. This allows the winter to drastically reduce the cranking amperage that is available to the starter. It is essential to get your auto battery tested before, during, and after winter to ensure it always remains in good condition. If it is not, you should consider replacing it as soon as possible to avoid getting stranded in a cold parking lot or side of the road when you least expect it.
Get your Brakes Checked Often
You need to get your brakes checked routinely to ensure your safety when driving on icy and snow covered roads. While you may test the brakes on your own, a professional will conduct thorough inspection to ensure that your brakes will work perfectly in all possible aspects. The certified technicians at Everything Auto NY will always have the latest technology and optimal equipment to monitor your braking system correctly. Regardless of what year make or model, we are your one stop shop for everything automotive, including brakes, even for rare cars, such as BMW M series, and other BMW’s, Mercedes Benz, Range Rover, Porsche, etc.
Ensuring Lights and Wipers are Working
It is best to check the level of fluid in the windshield reservoir and fill it up as needed. At Everything Auto NY, we provide free windshield washer fluid fill ups with EVERY service! Even a small oil change or light bulb change, will get your windshield washer bottle filled to the top!
Wipers can get damaged for many reasons, such as, being operated while frozen, or windshield damages. While small chips and scratches might seem small at first, it is recommended to replace chipped and cracked windshields immediately to avoid damage to yourself and others. At Everything Auto NY, we provide wiper replacements and windshield replacements, as well as, other automotive glass repair services.
You should also ensure that your exterior and interiors lights are in optimal working condition so that other drivers can see you and you can see them. One of the worst feelings on the road, is having all your lights on, and still not being able to see the person ahead of you!
