As you head out the door on a cold winter day, you certainly want a reliable vehicle, whether it's just a short commute to work or school, or headed up the mountain for some winter fun! Call your auto shop and ask for a standard inspection of the various systems of your vehicle to determine if there are any potential problem areas. Don't take any unnecessary chance of a roadside emergency and you're looking for an auto shop for an urgent repair.

Drive Safe on Winter Roads With These Four Tips From an Auto Shop:

  1. Stay on track with preventative maintenance: Check all the fluids (oil, brake, transmission, etc.), and change or top-off as necessary. High-quality filters are worth the extra cost for a smoother ride. Check the braking system, the battery, and the exterior lights (headlights, brakes, back-up lights, blinkers, and fog lights), and make sure all functioning properly. Finally, check your wiper blades and replace them as necessary.
  2. Check the tires: Make sure all your tires have the proper inflation pressure and inspect them for abnormal wear. If necessary, have a tire rotation, or if the tread is too shallow, you may need to purchase new tires. Remember to check the spare too.
  3. Clean out your car: To be more comfortable in the car, clean it out! All-weather floor mats will help protect your carpets and are easy to clean. Clean your windows so there is nothing obstructing your view. Remove unnecessary items from the trunk and backseat to increase your vehicle's fuel efficiency, but make sure to leave in a roadside emergency kit, including blankets, snacks, and water.
  4. Inspect the Radiator: Make sure the ratio of anti-freeze is adequate for freezing temperatures, and that there are no cracks or bulges in the hoses.

Of course, you can't always guarantee that the unexpected won't happen. But, if you ask your auto shop to take care of these routine maintenance services, your gas mileage and driving performance should increase significantly, and you can have a stress-free drive!

Call your auto center to take care of problems before you have an emergency! Contact our ASE Certified technicians today at (763) 441-2889 or go to www.elkrivertireandauto.com for more information.
