With Winter right around the corner, it is important to make sure that your car will run safely on the roads. Gurney’s Automotive specializes in safety inspections in NH. There are certain precautions that must be taken in the Fall to assure you that your family will be safe in the Winter.
What to Do to Prepare for Winter
- Make sure you have gotten a proper oil change recently. Your oil should be changed roughly around every 3,000 miles. This ensures that your car will run smoothly for longer. The longer you wait to replace your oil, the dirtier it will become and the more likely it is to wear the metal in your engine.
- Rotate your tires regularly around every 6,000 miles. The wear on your tires is different in different areas of the car, depending on whether you have front or rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive. Rotating them helps you make sure that you get the most mileage out of each tire.
- Replace your tires, especially before the winter weather hits in full force. The treads on your tires are designed to push rain, slush, and snow out of the way of your car. They also help grip the snow so your car won’t slide all over the road. Snow tires are ideal for winter weather because they have special tread patterns that dig deep into the snow and help ground your car. The rubber materials used to create snow tires are also more conducive to cold weather than regular tires, so the temperature damage to them is minimal.
- Be sure to check your air filter and your timing belt, if you have one. Regular maintenance to these systems will help keep your car running without running the risk of failure.
