Ford Winter Maintenance Tips

Preparing Your Ford for the Winter in Baton Rouge, LA

Is your car ready for the coming winter? The different temperatures and precipitation patterns can wreak havoc on the roads if your car isn’t fully prepared, and we don’t want you to be stuck in the cold when you could have come to us first. Our service center at Hollingsworth Richards Ford has all the services you could need to prepare yourself and your car for the winter, and we’ve put together a list of the ways you can take advantage of our services.

Our Top Ten List of Services for Preparing Your Car for the Winter

  • Check/Replace Coolant and Antifreeze: Antifreeze is the part of your coolant that prevents it from freezing over and not cooling your engine, so it’s best to have your coolant in good shape and at the correct levels.
  • Windshield Wiper Check: The winter weather brings winter storms, and you want to make sure you can see in the rain. We’ll check to see if your wipers are in good enough shape for the season.
  • Change Washer Fluid: A winter blend of washer fluid is designed to work optimally at lower temperatures.
  • Battery Testing: We provide battery testing to know if you need to replace your battery before the cold comes rolling in or not.
  • Battery Inspection: We’ll check your battery’s externals to ensure that nothing is interfering with its ability to provide energy to the engine and other systems.
  • HVAC Inspection: You want to stay warm driving in the cold, so we’ll check your HVAC systems, focusing on the seat warmers, steering wheel warmers, heater, and defrost.
  • Tire Inspection: We’ll check your tires’ tread and pressure, and we can even switch your tires out for snow tires if you need.
  • Brake Inspection: Your brakes keep you safe in the ice and rain, so it’s best to have them checked out to see if you need to take care of anything before the cold comes.
  • Windshield Crack and Chip Inspection: It’s best to care for cracks and chips before the winter arrives because the cold can worsen those cracks and chips.
  • Roadside Safety Kit: Our experts can help you ensure that your roadside safety kit is ready to help you out in an emergency.
