We have been thinking about our customers’ vehicle winter readiness plans as temperatures drop and winter conditions arrive. We organized a set of winter maintenance tips to assist our customers in preparing their vehicles for safe travels on slippery roads. We are here to assist with your winter maintenance services at Libertyville Chevrolet.
The #1 overall vehicle maintenance, and staging point for winter readiness, is a thorough and comprehensive multi-point inspection. This is a bumper-to-bumper assessment of a vehicle’s primary systems and components that detects risk. You will gain peace of mind that your vehicle is winter-ready or we can provide the maintenance needed for risks found to promote reliable winter performance.
Sub-zero temperatures notoriously wreak havoc on car batteries. Be sure that your winter readiness plan includes a battery inspection with electrical testing to ensure reliable performance when winter conditions arrive.
Getting a tire inspection is an excellent way to know that your vehicle has ideal traction in slippery conditions. Our certified technician can inspect your tires for rapid wear damage, measure the tread depth, and adjust inflation pressures. It might be a good idea to replace old tires or switch to a winter seasonal tread.
You will need good antifreeze in sub-zero conditions to prevent the water from freezing inside the engine. We can inspect the coolant fluid/antifreeze and provide the exchange service necessary if it has lost integrity.
Winter delivers a heightened risk of snow, ice, and wintery mix that reduces visibility and safety while driving. Be sure to check and replace windshield wiper blades if they have lost integrity, or replace them proactively if they are over a year old to ensure peak windshield clearing and visibility when winter weather strikes. It is also a good idea to install winter mix wiper fluid for peak windshield clearing in icy conditions.
The heating and defroster system needs to work properly when sub-zero conditions freeze the cabin and ice covers the windshield. Be sure to check the heater and defroster operation to ensure that they blow out the hottest air at specifications.
It’s always a good decision to carry a roadside safety kit, but the safety risk is elevated in winter conditions with slippery roads and sub-zero temperatures. Be sure to pack a roadside safety kit, or we can assist in getting one for you. Roadside safety kits should have a blanket, phone charger, extra motor oil, first aid provisions, ice scraper, road flares or emergency triangle.
