Everyone who has ever lived in Michigan knows what it’s like to endure a winter season. The same people know that it’s important to have their vehicle serviced prior to winter in an effort to avoid damage from Mother Nature. The team at Vicksburg Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM has put together a list of the most important pre-winter service tips for your vehicle.
Rotate the Tires
A tire rotation is one of the most important services you can have performed at our service center for your vehicle, no matter its age. This service helps prevent the uneven wear of the treads on your vehicle, which can wind up extending the life of the tires. If a tire rotation cannot help your tires it might be time to replace them all at once.
Get an Oil Change
The handful of weeks prior to the winter season is the best time to have your car serviced by our experienced technicians. An important service you need to consider is a pre-winter oil change. Why? Changing the oil before the air temperatures change can help protect your engine and transmission from damage. The oil change should get you through the harshest of winters and into the spring with ease.
Check the Fluid Levels
There are a variety of fluids your vehicle relies on to run effectively and safely. You should have our service technicians check those fluids before the winter months arrive. These fluids include windshield wiper fluid, brake fluid, transmission fluid, steering fluid, coolant and others. Top off all the fluids before the storms hit so you aren’t left out in the cold.
