During the winter, Tennessee roads can become hazardous. While you’re wrapping yourself up for the cold, remember your vehicle also needs protection from the elements. Get your vehicle ready for the sinking temperatures so you and your passengers can stay safe during the colder months.
Our courteous technicians at Christian Brothers Automotive Jackson are here to help prepare your vehicle for winter so you can drive with the surety that nothing will go wrong.
Replace Windshield Wipers
Windshield wipers need regular replacing because the rubber on the wipers has a tendency to deteriorate, especially if your car is frequently outside. With low visibility already being a major risk factor during the winter months, experienced drivers will agree that replacing your wipers ahead of time is the best idea.
In addition, coating your windshield with wiper fluid will make it easier for your wipers to get rid of water and grime. The fluid can also help the wipers in removing any snow and ice that might accumulate on your windshield.
Test Your Defroster
Another threat to visibility is the fog that builds up on the windshield when the moisture inside the vehicle condenses on the glass. It’s your defroster’s job to clear the condensation by blowing warm, dry air over the windshield. If your defroster isn’t doing a good job, it’s best to have the car checked for air leaks around the doors and windows. It may also indicate there’s a problem with your AC system.
Check Belts and Hoses
There’s no harm in having one of our local Jackson technicians look to see if the belts and hoses around the engine are sound. Cold weather tends to weaken the belts and hoses, possibly leading to snaps and breakage. You’ll definitely need to call a tow truck if a belt breaks while you’re driving. We always suggest playing it safe! Make an appointment with our Jackson auto repair shop to make sure your belts and hoses are in their best working condition for the winter.
