Winterizing Your Vehicle

Brian Bates

Can you believe how dismally hot September has been in Colorado? One day the thermometer registered 93 degrees! Despite the obnoxiously hot September weather, fall and winter will happen very quickly. It’s hard to think about winter when it’s 93 degrees, but once we get that dreary October weather, everyone will believe that winter is on its way. Here are some things you could think about when winterizing your vehicle. 

Coolant Flushes

If you don’t remember when your vehicle had a coolant flush, chances are you probably need one. Most coolant doesn’t last that long. Usually only two years or 30,000 miles. You could look back through your records to check, or bring in your car and we can tell you whether you need one. The best time to get a coolant flush is before you need one, of course. 

Tune-ups or Services

Again, if you don’t remember the last time you had a service, then you might want to bring in your vehicle. A little thing can turn into a big thing, and we want to make sure your winter is spent next to a cozy fire--not waiting for a tow truck! While we’re happy to work on your damaged engine, we’d much prefer to do some preventive maintenance than have to restore your engine. 

Oil Change

An oil change is one of those services that is worth its weight in gold. You never want to run your engine with oil that’s been around for too long. And if your engine is low on oil, that’s even worse! Running an engine without oil is something we see and hear about far too often. 

Fluid Exchange

Your vehicle’s engine needs all kinds of fluids to stay in good shape. Power steering and brake fluids are two examples. And while you might be able to change all sorts of fluids yourself, do you want to deal with the mess? You probably have a lot of better things to do, especially now that the holidays are nearly here. 

Check Your All-Season Tires

Just as with any tires, all-season tires wear out. And you never want to be driving on bald tires, so you can quickly check the depth of wear using the penny test. That is, if you put a penny into the tread groove, you should not be able to see Lincoln’s entire head. If you can, it’s time for new tires! By the way, not every all-season tire is created equal. Some have much better grip in the snow. Since tires are our specialty, we’d be happy to advise you. There’s a lot of confusion about which tires to get with the warming weather in the Denver area.
