Steps to Winterize Your Vehicle in Woodside, NY

Our service experts at Koeppel Ford are happy to help you get ready for the cold bite of winter no matter what you might face. Here are some helpful tips to keep you cozy, warm, and up to the challenge of northern winters!

  • Have Your Car Serviced for Winter Conditions: Our service team can get your vehicle ready to go by checking important systems that get hit hard in the cold, including the battery, cooling system, brakes, and parts like belts, wires, and hoses.
  • Make the Switch to Winter Tires: Winter tires are designed to provide the best performance and handling when dealing with snow-covered roads. Our tire experts can help you locate the best ones and install them for you!
  • Install Winter Wipers: Regular wipers might work for rain, but they aren't equipped to deal with ice buildup. Winter wipers are heavier, allowing them to keep your windshield clear of snow, ice, and salt from the roads.
  • Keep Washer Fluid Full: You should always make sure to replace the windshield wiper fluid often and to keep it topped off. Snowstorms can cause you to use the fluid often, draining the reservoir more frequently. We will make sure that your windshield wiper is topped off, and we will make sure to use fluid graded for much colder temperatures.
  • Keep Your Defrosters in Working Condition: Your window defrosters help keep the windshield and rear window freeze of frost and ice. Without proper care, you can find your vision compromised, leading to less ideal driving conditions. Our service team can help make sure they are in perfect working order.
  • Keep Your Gas Tank at Least Half Full: Cold temperatures can have an adverse effect on your gas tank, freezing the gas lines. Keeping your fuel tank full reduces condensation in the gas lines and can be the only reason your engine stays on if you find yourself stranded.
