The frigid temperatures of winter can be rough on your vehicle. Snow, sleet, and ice can also present hazardous driving conditions. Fortunately, there are some steps Hanover drivers can take to keep their vehicles in tip-top shape and stay as safe as possible in the coming months. Here at Jannell Ford of Hanover, we strive to provide our customers with the best service and most useful information. Read on to discover important tips to prepare your Ford for winter.

Check Your Fluids

Checking your engine's coolant and antifreeze levels are essential if you want to keep things running smoothly on every Brockton street. Allowing your engine to freeze can be disastrous, leading to an expensive and complex repair. Another fluid you may want to change is your wiper fluid. One formulated for winter temperatures will keep your windshield from freezing. Winter-grade oil may also be a good idea.

Inspect Your Tires

You'll want to have your tires inspected to be sure the tread is in good shape and that they are balanced and properly inflated to take on every adventure around Weymouth. These issues can lead to poor traction, causing you to slip and slide on wet or icy roads. You may even want to consider having snow tires installed for added peace of mind.

Test Your Battery

A quick battery test from our professionals will let you know if you have enough power to take you through the cold months we see here in and around Marshfield. Frigid temperatures can drain automobile batteries, and you don't want to end up stuck on the coldest day of the year.
