Use this lull between Christmas and New Year’s to see the Wichita auto care experts at Tracy’s Automotive for some routine maintenance on your car.
We’re in that lull between Christmas and New Year’s when you feel as if you’re just marking time until real life begins again Jan. 2. If you’ve got kids, you’re looking to take them to Ice Pond at the Plazzio or some other event to keep them busy and entertained until it’s time to go back to school.
This lull is also a good time to get some of those routine chores done before the stresses of everyday “normal” life intrude. You know the type of chore – like routine car maintenance. Important all the time, preventive car maintenance is especially important in winter when, as State Farm Insurance says, “from low tire pressure to frozen fuel lines to road salt damage, winter can take its toll on your vehicle.”
State Farm offers these auto care tips for winter car care:
“Swap out regular tires for winter tires. Snow or not, if you live in an area where temperatures regularly fall below 45 degrees, winter tires are recommended. They’re made to give you better traction while turning or stopping on cold pavement.
“Check tire pressure weekly. Driving on underinflated tires can cause them to wear down prematurely and lose traction on icy or slippery surfaces. Your tires lose a pound of pressure with every 10-degree drop in temperature.”
Equally important are regular oil changes using a winter weight oil and checks of belts, filters, steering, batteries, and brakes.
