Alameda, CA (PRWEB) November 14, 2013
Alameda auto repair shop, Alameda Auto Lab Car Repair and Service wants to encourage drivers to make sure their cars are winterized. Alameda Auto Lab has some tips to ensure cars are safe and road-ready for winter weather situations.
Drivers should perform the following checks:
- check coolant for strength
- check all other fluids (including washer fluid),
- check all hoses,
- check belts,
- check lights for night vision as it gets dark earlier,
- check tires and tire pressure,
- check wiper blades.
All these things are important to have vehicles safe for any winter weather eventuality. It may also be wise to have an oil service done. Lastly, Alameda Auto Lab has a fuel saving tip: check for worn spark plugs. Worn spark plugs can cause inefficient combustion, which results in wasted fuel and can cost drivers up to 2 miles per gallon.
Alameda Auto Lab can perform all these checks and more on all vehicles. To make an appointment to have a vehicle winterized, give Alameda Auto Lab a call at: 510-863-8098.
