3 hot (or cold) tips for managing your vehicle during cold weather

The harsh winter weather can take a toll on your car. But don’t worry, The Garage is here to ensure that your car stays in tip-top shape all season long.

Here are some expert tips to keep your car running smoothly during the winter months:

  1. Tire pressure -> Properly inflated tires and good tread depth are essential for safe driving in all weather conditions. (We know we must do it, but no-one wants to do it?!😁) 
  2. Brake fluid level -> brakes feel a bit strange lately? Check fluid levels. Low, or no fluid can have a significant impact on your brakes, or fail entirely. The biggest sign of low brake fluid is that your brakes don’t work as well or at all.
  3. Air filter -> a dirty air filter can reduce fuel efficiency and power. It’s fairly easy to check. Grab a screwdriver, you’ll need to disconnect a couple of electrical connector. Check your owner’s manual for precise location and removal procedure. Open the air box, remove the air filter and look at it.

Don’t let the cold winter weather catch you off guard. Make sure your car is ready for the roads by scheduling a maintenance check-up with The Garage in Burnaby BC.
