Regularly scheduled seasonal maintenance services are the best thing you can do to keep your vehicle performing at its best.
Cold Can Affect Your Car
The cold weather may cause your vehicle to experience changes that can affect several of your vehicle’s systems and components and may require you to get auto service or repair . Some of these changes are:
Thickening of motor oil.
Cold temperatures may cause your vehicle’s motor oil to thicken and to move slower through the engine.
Reduced battery function.
Battery energy is reduced when it gets cold out. That’s why an older battery may begin acting up on winter mornings. The colder temperatures may cause your battery not to start your car and may leave you stranded.
More fuel used.
Cars generally use more fuel during colder winter weather.
Higher risk of windshield cracks.
The cold may cause, your vehicle’s windshield to become additionally vulnerable. Drivers often remove ice and snow incorrectly, which may crack or damage the windshield and require some auto repair.
