Routine Alfa Romeo service at Helfman Alfa Romeo of Sugar Land is an important part of caring for your vehicle. While you probably have a set schedule for your vehicle, there are a few extra service tasks that you should consider as the winter season approaches.
Check Your Fluid Levels
You should regularly check your fluid levels to ensure they are at an adequate level. Keep in mind, many of these fluids need to be routinely replaced too, so check your owner’s manual to see when your next replacement is due.
- Engine oil
- Transmission fluid
- Brake fluid
- Power steering fluid
- Windshield wiper fluid
Replace Your Windshield Wipers
While we have gotten through our wettest part of the year, we all know rainy days are inevitable year-round in Houston. Now is an opportune time to switch out your windshield wiper blades. For your safety, it’s so important that you can always easily clear your windshield.
Clean Your Battery
Cold weather can be hard on your battery so it’s important to have your battery inspected. You also want to clean your battery posts. Corrosion and build-up can also be hard on your battery too and, in this season, your battery can use all the help it can get.
Rotate Your Tires
It’s also important that you use this time to inspect and rotate your tires. By rotating them, this helps to minimize tire wear and keep your tires from wearing unevenly, which leaves them likely to go flat. You also want to make sure they have adequate tread to give you traction on wet or slick surfaces.
