As the temperatures dip and the days grow shorter, it’s more important than ever to get your car prepared to handle the elements. At Car Pretty of Philadelphia, we take car care seriously. For those who want to ensure that their cars run smoothly, even in the dead of winter, we’ve got a few tips to help get you started. If you need help with any car care maintenance issues this winter, we’re always here to help.
1. Take your car in for a tune-up.
One of the best ways that you can get your car prepared for the harsh days of winter is by taking it in for a tune-up. A good tune-up will keep your car running longer and it just might save you money in the long run by detecting any potential issues, as well.
2. Check your tires.
As you can imagine, your tires are important. They give you stability and they allow you to control your car when you’re driving. During the cold winter months, it’s important to make sure that you keep a check on your tires’ pressure as well as the wear. Do the penny test on your tires to check the tread and consider purchasing snow tires, as well.
3. Make an emergency car kit.
Another great winter car care tip is to get an emergency kit prepared. Your winter emergency car kit should have cat litter or sand inside of it, as well as an ice-scraper and de-icing liquid.
4. Keep up on your fluids.
It’s always a good idea to check the fluid levels inside your brake, power steering, transmission and windshield wiper compartments. Use a de-icing windshield wiper fluid since this will help clear ice and frost.
5. Change your air filters.
If you see any debris inside your air filters, it’s a good idea to have them replaced. Letting dirt and debris accumulate can cause problems for your vehicle.
