Check Under the Hood

The colder temperatures of winter can impact your vehicle's internal configuration. As such, we suggest inspecting belts and hoses for wear and tear and replacing fluids like the coolant which may run low to make sure your car, truck, or SUV performs at optimum levels.

Check Under the Car

The roads are rough during wintertime due to potholes and ice. This can affect major components like the alignment of your tires and the springs and shocks of your suspension. If your steering feels rougher or your vehicle starts to pull, these are indicators that you need to fix tire alignment and suspension.

Check Your Tire Pressure

Did you know that tire pressure is affected by temperature? Colder air can reduce pressure whereas hotter air can increase it. As such, it is likely you added pressure to your tires during the winter that may no longer be the appropriate amount. We urge you to check your levels regularly for this reason.

Check Your Wiper Blades

Ice buildup can cause wiper blades to wear or crack significantly, and with May showers on the horizon, it is a good idea to make sure they function properly. So, be sure to inspect your wiper blades and, if necessary, replace them.
