Prepare for Winter: Chevrolet Maintenance Tips

unnamed

We have cooler, sunny days in the forecast for the week ahead, but it’s never too early to prepare for the arrival of winter weather. Not only should we be altering our driving habits to accommodate for the change in road conditions, but we should also arrange with a local mechanic to complete maintenance that will ensure the top performance of our Chevrolet vehicle(s) all season long.

Keep your Chevrolet clean

Snow, salt and ice can build up quickly when you’re on the road, leading to poor visibility and possible corrosion on your Chevrolet. Rid your vehicle of hazardous debris with frequent visits to your local car wash or our J.B.A. service department; your Chevrolet will thank you.

Monitor all vehicle fluids & check your oil!

As colder temperatures arrive, the oil in your Chevrolet can begin to thicken making it harder for your vehicle to start and perform to the best of its ability. With the winter season approaching, it’s a good time to start monitoring the levels of all fluids in your vehicle. If you’re unsure about your Chevrolet fluid levels, our technicians are here to help! You can schedule your service appointment online or contact us directly: 410-766-6300.

How’s your battery?

The battery of your Chevrolet will take a serious beating with the arrival of colder temperatures. In fact, the change in temperature can decrease the charge of your vehicle battery even if it’s new. To avoid getting stuck on the side of the road in bad weather, ensure that a mechanic takes a close look at the condition of your Chevrolet battery.

Keep the tank full

This tip might seem obvious, but it’s worth mentioning. Fill up your gas tank when you have a chance. Not only will this decrease the likelihood of you running out of gas in poor winter weather, but it will also decrease the chances of your gas line freezing.

Do you have your winter tires?

When outside temperatures dip below 44°F, it’s important that you change over to your winter tires. The rubber on all-season tires can harden in cold temperatures which will cause your vehicle to lose traction on snow and ice covered roads. Winter tires, however, remain flexible which allows the rubber to grip the road.

Need help choosing the right winter tires for your vehicle? We’re here to help! Visit our website or contact our service department: 410-766-6300.
