Prevent problems before they occur
Winter weather is hard on your vehicle. This fall, get a complete check-up of your:
Your motor needs a fully charged battery to start in cold weather. Clean battery posts and check the charging system and belts. Replace weak batteries before they fail.
Replace defective ignition wires, cracked distributor caps and worn spark plugs, since they can make starting difficult or may cause a sudden breakdown.
Check or service your brakes to ensure even braking. Pulling, change in pedal feel, or unusual squealing or grinding may mean they need repair.
Check pressures often, especially before any highway driving. Properly inflated, quality winter tires will give best traction on winter roads and increase fuel efficiency.
