As the cool air approaches, we all need to be aware of how to keep our vehicles up to optimum performance. South Louisiana climate doesn’t always allow us to put winter vehicle maintenance at the top of mind. Well, you no longer have to be in the dark on how to keep your vehicle in great shape for the winter months. The All Star Family is here to shed some light on great winter vehicle tips!
Have you been holding off for an oil change? Well procrastinate no more! Your vehicle should have the right viscosity, or thickness of oil at this time of year. Oil tends to thicken as the temperature drops, and if it is too thick, it would not do the best job of lubricating your vehicle’s engine. Being able to see in conditions when there may be a little ice on the road is imperative. When was the last time your windshield wiper blades were replaced? Wiper blades are usually good for six months to one year depending on the usage, so be sure to change your blades if you are due. Also, fill up your windshield reservoir with windshield fluid, because plain water would not do this time of year, as it freezes.
These are just a few vehicle tips to keep your vehicle running at optimum performance during the colder months. Even though this is South Louisiana, it is better to be prepared and care for your vehicle properly when the harsh weather times arrive. Schedule your service appointment with us today!
