Winter is Coming: Prepare Your Car for Cold

Winter Preparation - ALP Blog

Here in Texas we’re well prepared for hot summers. It’s pretty standard practice to make sure your AC is in good condition as the summer heat sets in, but up here near Dallas winter can hit pretty hard too. It’s important to take a few simple steps to ensure your vehicle is prepared for wintry conditions, and Auto Liquidators Plus is here to help!

Get a Winter Tune Up

Our cars’ engines react to hot and cold temperatures in different ways, so it’s important to make sure that your vehicle is prepped for freezing weather. Our expert service technicians can make sure all of your engine components are ready for the cold. We can check your battery, top off your anti-freeze, ensure your brakes are ready to perform on icy roads, and give you a top-to-bottom inspection to make sure all of your engine components are ready to perform as temperatures drop. We want you to drive safely, so come see us and get set for winter today!

Check Your Tires Regularly

While winter tires are not really necessary in Texas, it’s still very important to regularly inspect your tires to make sure they are ready for potentially icy roads. Drops in temperature can drastically lower your tire pressure, so be sure to check them after any big freezes. Also, if you’ve been putting off replacing worn tires, now is the time to do it. You’ll definitely want good tread when you hit that unexpected patch of ice on a bridge.

Install Anti-Freeze Wiper Fluid and Winter Wipers

It’s easy to forget about your wiper blades and wiper fluid, that is until you’re driving through icy rain and your wipers won’t clear the windshield, and then it starts to freeze over as you rapidly lose visibility. You can avoid all of that with two simple steps: install winter wipers and anti-freeze wiper fluid. The new wipers are made with rubber that resists freezing, and the anti-freeze fluid will help clear away any built-up ice or snow. If you need a little assistance, just stop by our service center! Our technicians will be happy to help.
