Prepare For Winter
Canada is cold in winter, snowy and short in day. They are all unfavorable factors for safe driving. Car maintenance, checking tyres, batteries, engine oil, brakes, heating and lights before winter. Safeguard yourself and others.
1.Tires. The colder the temperature, the harder the tyre rubber, and the snow and ice on the ground in winter are likely to cause uncontrolled slipping of the vehicle. Check the tyres for cracks and severe tread wear. Tyres we use generally have limit wear indicator blocks. In case of eccentric wear, four-wheel alignment is required. It is best to replace winter tyres, which are relatively soft in rubber, wider and deeper in tread grooves, and provide better adhesion and slip resistance on snow and ice.
2.Battery. In winter, a car needs enough power to start its engine. Ensure that the poles and conductor connections are firmly connected and in good contact. Maintenance-free batteries are now commonly used and, in general, no electrolyte is required. Just note if the cold start current (CCA) and capacity (Ah) match.
3.Engine. Check the engine once to see if the engine belt oil needs to be added or replaced. Is Tune-Up required
4.Brake. Check brake pads and discs for wear, brake fluid level and brake lines, especially brake hoses, for cracks.
5. Heating system. Check whether the heating is working properly, the operation of fans at different speeds and the performance of the demister. Replace the aging wipers and fill the windows with cleaning fluid.
6.Car lights. Check that all lights and turn lights, brake lights and emergency alarm lights are working properly.
