In our previous article in this series we started discussing the importance of getting your vehicle ready for the winter months that are coming and we want to give you a few more things to work on. All of these tips can be done at local BMW cars dealer near Downingtown, however, if you feel comfortable with it, a few of these can be done on your own. I feel, as a woman, sometimes we sell ourselves short on the things we can actually accomplish. So, if you are interested in saving some money you should check into some of these things that you can do on your own.
One of the things that you need to check into is to get some fuel deicer so that your fuel lines don’t freeze. This is a simple task that you can definitely get done on your own.
You can get your oil changed just in preparation of the winter coming. If you want to learn how to change the oil in your vehicle there are a lot of “How To” videos out there that can help you learn. If this isn’t something you want to try to do on your own then you can totally bring your car into Otto’s BMW service department.
Something that would definitely benefit your vehicle during winter is if you would flush your cooling system. Usually during winter car specialists would suggest that you do a fifty fifty mix of water and antifreeze in your cooling system to prevent it from freezing up when temperatures drop. While this is being done you should have all of the hoses, belts, and any other rubber pieces check out and inspected.
Make sure that your heater is working properly not only is it super uncomfortable, but it is also very unsafe if your defrost and heat aren’t working inside of your vehicle.
