Oil

When was your last oil change? Was it at the recommended time? This is important that your oil levels are at the recommended amounts, and all of your filters are checked. This will keep your car running smoothly and efficiently.

Battery

Examine that your battery connections are tight and clean. Check to make sure there are no corrosions. Drops in temperatures affect a batteries performance. It is recommended to replace batteries that are more than 3 years old, as they can fail at any time.

Tires

 A tires pressure is very important to your cars ability to run efficiently and prevent a blow out or flat. Make sure you tire pressure is at the recommended amount. Aside from tire pressure, a tire’s wear and tear can affect a tire’s grip on the road, especially during winter time. Do the penny test to ensure your wear and tear is at the safe amount.

Wiper Blades

.If the wipers are not cleaning your windshield properly it is time to replace them.

Antifreeze

Antifreeze is a coolant that should be refilled at minimum every two years. This is important before cold weather comes!

Brakes

Brakes should be checked every so often as they are important to not only your safety, but the safety of others. Make sure there is no noise when you brake as that is an indication they need to be looked at.
