Winter Maintenance Tips

Ford Winter Maintenance Tips  

Certified Ford Winterization Services in Columbia, PA

Your Ford can be taken care of quite easily by following recommended maintenance intervals and getting regular oil changes and tire rotations. However, it’s best to prepare your Ford winter, and that’s only possible through winterization services. Winterization is the process of getting your car ready for winter, and it involves many services and inspections that increase your car’s readiness for the cold weather and ice. We provide those services at Chapman Ford of Columbia, and we’ve put together a list of the services we provide.

Top Ten Ford Winterization Services

  1. Tire Inspection: We’ll check your tires to make sure they aren’t low on pressure or thin in the treads, and we can also switch them out for snow tires if you desire.
  2. HVAC Inspection: Your HVAC systems keep you warm during the winter, so we’ll check your heater, defrost, seat warmers, and steering wheel warmers to make sure they’re ready to handle the cold.
  3. Windshield Crack and Chip Inspection: The cold can worsen cracks and chips in your windshield, so it’s best to get them taken care of before they become a bigger problem that only a total windshield replacement can fix.
  4. Brake Inspection: We want you to be safe out on the ice, which is why we perform a complete 4-wheel brake inspection to make sure you can stop when you need to.
  5. Battery Charging System Inspection: There should be nothing interfering with your battery’s ability to provide charge for your car, so we inspect it to find anything that’s out of order or broken in the charging system.
  6. Battery Testing: We don’t want your battery to leave you stranded in the cold, so we test it and make sure it can give and take the energy it needs to survive and start you up when you need it.
  7. Check/Replace Engine Coolant and Antifreeze: Your coolant/antifreeze prevents engine freezing in winter, so it’s best to have fresh fluids at maximum capacity.
  8. Change Washer Fluid: Your windshield washer fluid should be a winter blend to avoid problems with freezing in sub-zero temperatures.
  9. Check Windshield Wiper Blades: You need your visibility to be at a maximum, so we check your windshield wiper blades to make sure they don’t need to be replaced.
  10. Roadside Safety Kit: We’ll help you decide what’s best to have in your roadside safety kit in case of an emergency. Contact us for a genuine OEM kit from the accessories department.
