Alameda Auto Lab Offers Tips for Winter

Share Article

The car repair and service center helps get cars ready for winter weather.

Winter is on its way, and that means it’s time to get cars ready for the colder months ahead. Alameda Auto Lab is ready to help all their customers with winter auto maintenance and service.

The new time change means it’s getting darker earlier, so it’s important to make sure all the lights on the car are checked for safety. In addition, the change in weather to wet and cold means it’s time to get the cooling system checked for coolant strength, as well as the hoses, belts, coolant expansion tanks and radiators.

Keeping tires in great shape is also very important during the winter season. If the tires are not properly inflated when there is wet weather, the vehicle could hydroplane. It is impossible to determine whether tires are properly inflated simply by looking at them. Tires must be checked monthly with a tire pressure gauge.

All vehicles should be properly tuned and all fluids should be checked to prepare for winter. Alameda Auto Lab just updated their diagnostic computers and other equipment to help their customers get ready for the winter months.

Alameda Auto Lab recently attended a suspension class and got recertified to keep up with the new parts, working to keep vehicles up to date.

Car owners should call Alameda Auto Lab for an appointment to make sure their vehicle is running safe for the upcoming winter days.
