Get Your Vehicle Ready For Winter Service

Preparing Your Vehicle for Winter

Preparing your car for winter is essential for those residing in Nebraska. Winter temperatures, weather, and the atmosphere can cause significant damage to your car if it is not prepared. Below are the preparations you need before the frigid temperatures arrive.

Tire Inspection

Your tire tread should be inspected as well as the pressure in your tires to determine if they need to be replaced.

Battery Test & Inspection

What is your battery life quality? If your battery is operating at 75 percent or less, then you should replace it sooner rather than later.

Brake Inspection

Do you have enough padding on your brake pads or do they need to be replaced? You will need your brakes to make it safely across wet and icy roads.

Wiper Blade Inspection

You should have your wiper blades replaced if you have only a little padding left between the metal and the glass.

Change Washer Fluid to Winter Blend

When you inspect your wiper blades, make sure to flush the old washer fluid and use the winter blend. This is designed for the winter weather and to protect your windshield against these temperatures.

HVAC Inspection

When you inspect your HVAC system, make sure to check the heater, defrost, seat warmers, and steering wheel warmers if your vehicle has them. These warmers are equipped with sensors and should be tested to ensure they are working properly.

Roadside Safety Kit

Should you find yourself stranded in the cold with car problems, it is essential to have a roadside safety kit in your car. Equip it with the following to keep you and your passengers warm while you are waiting for assistance.

  • Blankets
  • Hand and foot warmers
  • Gloves
  • Bottled water
  • Granola bars
  • Jumper cables
  • Flashlights
  • Batteries
  • Flares
  • First aid essentials

Check/Replace Engine Coolant & Antifreeze

Have you checked your antifreeze lately? You will need to top off your coolant and antifreeze so that your engine can operate as expected despite the dropping temperatures.

Windshield Crack & Chip Inspection

Did your windshield get a crack or chip over the summer? Have a technician inspect it and determine if you need a windshield replacement.
