More seasonal precautions

Be sure your engine oil is the correct viscosity. Colder climates can cause oil to thicken, demanding a thinner oil to start.

  • Check your antifreeze and be certain the proper water-to-antifreeze mixture is maintained. Antifreeze testers are available at many auto parts stores.
  • Verify that your windshield wipers are operable and keep the washer fluid reservoir full.
  • Double-check hoses and belts. Cold temperatures can cause rubber to shrink and crack, so be sure your hoses and belts have some flexibility left.

Always remember to check your vehicles service needs in your vehicle’s service maintenance guide provided to you or call and speak to a Service Advisor.
