Steps to Prepare Your Vehicle For Winter

There are many tips that have proven helpful for drivers in harsh winter areas of Scottdale. There are different parts of your vehicle that require lots of attention and maintenance so it can run smoothly. Check out some of those tips below:

  • Check Your Tire’s Tread Depth

Before the snow, sleet, and black ice set in, you have to make sure that your tires are equipped to handle these obstacles. Checking your tire’s tread depth is one of the most important maintenance procedures you can do on your vehicle. If the tread depth is low, consider replacing your tire with All-Season or preferably, Snow Tires.

  • Test Your Car Battery’s Voltage

Nothing’s worse than having a worn battery and having it die on a particularly cold day on the road. That’s why it’s important to check your battery’s health and voltage before the snow arrives in Latrobe. You can do this by using a computerized auto battery test or you can bring your vehicle down to our service center in Hillview Motors.

  • Check Your Engine’s Coolant

Your vehicle’s engine coolant is one of the most important fluids that work with your engine. Not only does it keep your engine cool but it prevents corrosion. If you’re unsure of the current condition of your engine’s coolant, bring your vehicle to our service center and our team of technicians will run tests to determine its effectiveness.
