Winterize Your Ride
With temperatures dropping and snow already falling, now would be a great time to make sure your car is ready for the cold weather. At AAMCO, we offer a variety of services that will help your vehicle get through the winter months.
Just as your car’s cooling system is important in the summer, it also helps to protect your engine in the winter. In order to protect against corrosion, your car must have the proper antifreeze to water ration. If you are unsure that your coolant is ready for winter, bring it in for a free inspection.
Another critical piece of equipment that often gets overlooked in the winter is the battery. Battery capacity tends to lower in the cold weather, and this can cause starting issues. At AAMCO, we have a state of the art battery and alternator tester that gives a readout of the performance of these components.
Snow and frost on the windshield is not only annoying, it can be be dangerous. Make sure that your car has windshield washer fluid designed for winter use. This will ensure that it will not freeze. It will also help clear frost from your windshield. Windshield wipers designed for winter are also good to have. Come into AAMCO for a large selection of premium blades that will help keep your vision clear of snow and sleet.
