Loveland’s Auto Service Company Shares 4 Winter Car Maintenance Tips , Loveland, Ohio

As it gets colder, heavy snowfall and icy roads can make what was once a leisurely drive into a tricky obstacle course. The pros at Ken Marcotte's Professional Auto Service in Loveland, OH, have long been the experts of automotive repair in the region. Winter can be a difficult test for a vehicle — the safe move is to take it to an auto service you trust.

Here are four car maintenance tips from Ken Marcotte’s Professional Auto Service on what you can do to winterize your car:

  • Tires: The cold will slowly lower the pressure in your tires, so make sure to check the air level and adjust it if necessary. Also, if your tread thickness is below 1/16 of an inch, your wheels are too vulnerable for the road. In winter, it’s best to be even more conservative with car maintenance.

  • Coolant: Dump out the coolant and replace it with half antifreeze and half water. Some folks find this task confusing, so don’t hesitate to seek the help of a mechanic at Ken Marcotte’s Professional Auto Service.
  • Battery: The cold can be a menace to batteries, draining them of their power without warning. It’s a good idea to have your battery tested, or to replace it if it’s more than a few years old.
  • Emergency Kit: Just in case, it’s worth having some tools on hand like jumper cables, tire chains, and an ice scraper. Throw in a few bottles of water to be safe.

It’s good to know how to winterize your car, but it is much safer to entrust your vehicle to an expert mechanic service like Ken Marcotte's Professional Auto Service. The Loveland, Ohio company offers a special winter deal to completely winterize your car for $32.95. As a bonus, you also receive an oil change and a brake check.
