Don’t look now, but winter is almost here. And while you may have gotten your HVAC system for your home tuned up, have you done anything to get your Jeep® SUV ready? No matter how bad the weather gets, these Jeep service tasks will help it make it through.
Did you know that oil gets thicker in colder weather? Because oil thickens up over time as well, if you haven’t changed your oil in a while, now is the time to do it. Clean oil better flows through an engine, which boosts performance and fuel economy, saving you from any number of future issues, as well.
Your tires must be in good condition when dealing with slick roads. First, the treads need to be deep enough to supply adequate traction. Your tires also need to be properly inflated to prevent a roadside emergency. Your tires keep you connected to the road — make sure they’re ready for slick conditions.
Do you know the age of your battery? A typical battery at most will last about five years before needing to be replaced. Plus, older batteries can struggle in very cold temperatures. This is why you should get yours tested so you’ll have an idea of how much life it has left.
Windshield Wiper Replacement
If you haven’t replaced your windshield wipers in a while, they’re probably in rough shape. Chances are good that the rubber has gotten frayed, which means that they won’t be able to cleanly clear off snow, rain, or other precipitation. A new set will give you much better visibility while you drive in harsh winter elements.
