Routine Winter Maintenance for Georgia Drivers

Routine Winter Maintenance for Georgia Drivers

| By: Christian Brothers Automotive

Cold temperatures, slick roads, and long road trips take a toll, making winter the most difficult time of the year for your car. Staying current on maintenance services and inspections before the winter weather hits can save you stress and money as the season continues. To help drivers in Peachtree City stay safe on the roads, the ASE-certified technicians at Christian Brothers Automotive Fischer Crossings have compiled a list of items to take care of before winter hits.

Get the oil changed

Changing the oil regularly is one of the most basic ways to keep your car healthy. It’s also the most neglected routine automotive service. Bad oil or the wrong oil can hamper your car’s performance and efficiency. Our Sharpsburg auto repair experts will make sure you get the right oil at the right time.

Check the heater and defroster

A working defroster is essential to winter safety. Before winter hits, test your heater and the defroster. Ensure the defroster clears off your windshield in a timely manner for full visibility, and schedule an AC system inspection if your heater does not work properly.

Keep up with your wiper blades

If you’re worried about an icy winter, ask for the right kind of wiper blades. Rubber-clad, winter wiper blades are stronger and can break through ice build-up on your windshield more effectively than standard blades. At the same time, have the mechanic top off the windshield fluid reservoir.

Replace dirty filters

Cold weather makes it more difficult for your engine to start and run – and that’s with a clean filter. Dirty or clogged filters will only make it harder for the engine to operate at peak efficiency. Inspect the fuel, oil, and air filters. If needed, have them replaced.

Check your car battery

There’s nothing worse than being stranded in the cold. Fortunately, you can check the car battery’s charge from the comfort of your own home. Make sure the connections are clean and free of corrosion. Then, bring your car by Christian Brothers Automotive Fischer Crossings to check the battery strength.

Keep up with regular vehicle maintenance to ensure a safe drive throughout the winter holidays. Call our auto repair shop near Peachtree City for an appointment today, and our experienced staff will make sure your car can keep your family safe. See the nice difference in car repair!
