As Winter approaches, you should make sure to prepare your car for the cold temperatures of Winter. We all know how unpredictable Fairfield, CT, winters can be, so being one step ahead is always a plus. There are a few key steps for you to check in your car before the winter cold fully sets in.
Check Your Tires
If your tires are more than six years old or have little tread left, it is time to replace them. You may have noticed your tires beginning to skid more when it rains, and this issue will be even worse in the snow and ice. If you are in Bridgeport, CT, and think your tires may be on their last leg, bring it down to us at DEALER and take advantage of one of our specials on a four-tire install!
Check Your Oil
When the temperature of your car's oil dips below freezing, it becomes thicker and less effective, which isn't normally an issue. But, if your oil already needs changing, the cold can put even more stress on your engine. For an affordable and quality oil change in Norwalk, CT, see us at Jaguar Fairfield!
Check Your Battery
Everyone knows that your car sometimes takes just a bit longer to start in the cold. While this is common, it can be a sign that your battery needs replacing. Car batteries have a wide lifespan, and some need replacing in as little as three years, while others will easily last seven years. To prevent getting stranded in the cold on the side of the road, visit Jaguar Fairfield in Milford, CT, and have our service technicians test your battery. Our battery tester can tell if your battery is working as it should or if it needs replacing.
Check Your Fluids
It is never good to be low on any of your car's fluids. This issue is even more pressing in the wintertime as the fluids begin to thicken in the freezing Shelton, CT temperatures. You also need to make sure your vehicle has an antifreeze rated for low enough temperatures. If you are unsure, we can test the antifreeze for you in Stratford, CT, and replace it if needed.
