Have you noticed the chill in the air? We may be able to safely bundle up with our parkas and our peppermint mochas, but are your Car Fluids prepared to keep you safe in winter?
In case you weren’t aware, there are different blends of Wiper Fluid to use, depending on the season. In the winter, it is important to use Wiper Fluid which contains antifreeze, to prevent hoses from cracking. It also won’t freeze immediately upon hitting your cold Windshield! We don’t use this Wiper Fluid during the warmer months, since it is more expensive. Also, if you have significant water added in your Coolant, now is a good time for a Coolant Service, to ensure that your Coolant will not freeze over the next few months, which could result in Engine Damage.
One more winter tip: your Car Battery can lose up to half of its capability in cold weather, so make sure it’s not too old! If you have concerns about Winter Fluids or your Car Battery, give us a call at 360-688-7111, or stop by 16326 State Route 9 (at 164th) in Clearview anytime.
