Service Tips: Prepare Your Car For Winter

Winter is the harshest season on your car, making it more important than ever to properly maintain your vehicle. In addition to the suggestions you may find in your owner’s manual, there are a few things you can do to help winterize your car, such as changing your oil, antifreeze, wipers, checking your battery, and getting snow tires.

These are just some of the things you can do to prepare for the winter weather. Stop by Pfeiffer Used today to have your vehicle serviced by a professional. We can not only winterize your car, but our trained technicians can also check for any other issues your car might have.

Oil gets thicker as the thermometer dips, so you should switch to oil with lower viscosity (or thickness). If your oil is too thick, it will take longer to reach important engine parts. By switching to thinner oil during the winter, you can keep oil flowing freely.
