Tips from your friends at Saucon Valley Auto Spa, your touch-free Lehigh Valley car wash located on Route 378 in Bethlehem, PA.
Fluid Up: The best way to winterize your car is to check all fluid levels before the deep freeze arrives. Late on that chore? Better late than never.
Coolant—Prevent fluid from freezing in your radiator with the correct antifreeze/water mixture. A tester from the auto parts store and also assist with your auto’s specific needs.
Oil—Consult your owner’s manual or give your mechanic a call. Your vehicle may require a thinner oil product.
Wiper fluid—Freeze-resistant wiper fluid is best to keep your windshield clean and your vision clear.
Check Your Tires – Cold air can lower the air pressure in your tires. Low air and worn tires are especially dangerous on wintry roads. Check your owner’s manual for the recommended PSI. A tire gauge from the auto parts store can help.
Go for Snow Tires – Need to drive on possibly dangerous snowy roads this winter? Snow tires can increase your traction and improve your safety on the road. Mounting the right tires on your car or truck can offer a big advantage when trekking through snow. Many car makers and tire manufacturers recommend changing all four tires to snow tires. If you don’t swap all four, the difference between snow and summer tires may cause other problems for your vehicle.
Protect Your Auto’s Finish – Durashield will protect your car from corrosion, road salt and road brine for 30 days. Available in the Xtreme Wash at Saucon Valley Auto Spa, our best wash costs only $13.75 and includes superior protectant Durashield. The Xtreme wash also includes a undercarriage wash; drive slowly into the bay when choosing the Xtreme wash to get the most out of the undercarriage wash.
