What Should Be Included in Vehicle Winterization?

Last updated 5 years ago

While Atlanta does not experience extremely harsh winters, our city does freeze an average of 36 nights per year. When these freezing temperatures do roll through Atlanta, vehicles that are not properly winterized can experience a host of problems beneath the hood, ranging from cracked belt and hoses to frozen engine coolant. Fortunately, your local automotive repair facility can ensure that your vehicle is ready for the coldest of winter nights. At Dekalb Tire, our thorough Winterization Special includes:

Oil Change. As temperatures drop, it becomes increasingly important that the oil inside your engine is clean. Old, dirty engine oil is much more viscous than fresh oil. When you add below freezing temperatures into the mix, this dirty oil becomes thicker, which makes the engine work much harder to get you to your destination. Stop by Dekalb Tire today and we’ll change out your dirty oil with five quarts of new oil as part of our Winterization Special.

Vehicle Inspection. With ice storms, heavy fog, and slick rain, winter is no time to drive around in a car that is ill-maintained or in need of repair. As part of our Winterization Special, our automotive repair technicians will inspect the most crucial components of your vehicle, including tires, brakes, lights, wipers, and all visible engine belts and hoses. If any of these components are in less than optimal shape, we will share our findings with you and recommend replacing them.

Coolant Flush. While you might think that engine coolant is only important during the blistering heat of summer, it is also designed to protect your vehicle during the biting cold of winter. In cold climates, coolant actually keeps many parts of your engine from freezing solid. To ensure that your engine is adequately insulated from the chilly winter weather, the automotive repair specialists at Dekalb Tire will flush and replace the coolant inside your radiator as part of our exclusive Winterization Special.

With five convenient Atlanta locations, Dekalb Tire is here to make sure that your vehicle runs smoothly all winter long. From brake repair and wheel alignments to oil changes and tire rotations, we do whatever we can to ensure that your vehicle is in excellent condition. Call (404) 252-9895 to learn more about our Winterization Special.
