New and Used Tires – rotation, balance, etc.
Every 3-4 years, depending on your manufacturer’s recommendations, have your cooling system flushed with a good chemical cleaner and refilled with fresh anti-freeze that can handle low-temperatures. Check reservoirs, belts, hoses, pressure caps and the thermostat.
A diagnostic check-up of the engine is a good pre-winter investment. If you’re due for a tune-up, have it done to prevent other major problems from occurring. Faulty wiring, worn spark plugs, a choke that sticks, or emission control devices that need attention, can all lead to hard starting.
Ensure your windshield offers you clear vision of the road and traffic around you even in harsh weather conditions. Have heaters, defrosters and wipers checked to make sure they’re fully operational. Install new wiper blades.
