Maintenance checks you need to take care of after winter in Ontario, Canada
In frosty conditions, your vehicle will face ice, snow, salt and cold temperatures- all of these elements can damage your car and make it less safe to operate when spring comes around. These are the most critical components to get serviced at your closest CRS Automotive service location:
Did you know that temperature changes can cause fluctuations in tire pressure? When the season changes, you need to ensure that your tires are at the correct pressure to enjoy a safe, smooth ride.
While your tire pressure is assessed, we can also look at the amount of tread you have remaining and make recommendations on when you'll need to have your tires replaced. Worn tread is illegal and incredibly dangerous, and our qualified technicians can help you to plan for replacements that will keep you safe while working with your budget.
Oil and Filters
The oil and oil filters in your car help to keep the system clean by picking up impurities that enter your engine. Over time, the oil and filters' effectiveness can decrease, leaving your vehicle vulnerable to severe damage in the long-run. A quick oil and filter change will keep your car functioning optimally, so you'll be ready to hit the road when the weather is right!
Checking your battery fluid levels and Testing your the battery’s function should be on your spring to-do list because. During winter, your car's battery works at its hardest. Due to the colder temperatures, the chemical reactions that make your battery function are slower to happen. When the weather gets warmer, battery fluids can quickly start to evaporate, which can cause corrosion to sink in faster. If the fluid levels are too low, your battery will need to be replaced.
Clearing snow and ice from your windshield can cause a lot of extra wear and tear on your wipers.
Ensure that they are functioning correctly before the spring showers start falling. If the wiper blades are cracked or damaged, you'll need to get them replaced. While we're busy servicing your windshield wipers, we'll top up your wiper fluid too.
Foggy headlights and broken taillights are an accident waiting to happen. If your lights are damaged, broken or not functioning like they should, book a service with us to fix wiring issues, replace bulbs and clean out the covers.
