Winterizing Your Ford Vehicle in Port Orchard, WA, Serving Gig Harbor and Silverdale

You always have to take care of your car through maintenance and service, but getting your car ready for the coming Winter season is also important. This happens through a process known as winterization, which is a set of services that makes sure your car is ready for the cold weather. We’ve put together a list of those services, and at our service center at Port Orchard Ford, we’re happy to provide those services for you and keep your car prepared.

The Ten Services You Need to Get Ready for Winter

  1. Windshield Crack and Chip Inspection
  2. Cold weather can make cracks and chips in your windshield worse, which is why you should get your windshield inspected for any problems that need to be taken care of soon.

  3. Tire Inspection
  4. Tires that have worn treads can be dangerous in the winter, and the cold weather can also affect the tire pressure. We’ll also change your tires to snow tires if you so desire.

  5. Brake Inspection
  6. Inspecting your brakes ensures that you know exactly how your brakes are doing before the icy roads and winter weather come in. You’ll be able to get your brakes into excellent condition for the coming winter.

  7. Battery Inspection
  8. Checking your battery for external problems helps ensure that you can start up easily when the cold weather hits. We want to keep you from needing a jump or a tow in the cold winter weather.

  9. HVAC Inspection
  10. We’ll take a look at your HVAC systems, paying special attention to the defrost, heater, seat warmers, and steering wheel warmers.

  11. Battery Testing
  12. The best way to know if your battery can handle the winter weather is to test it, and we’ll let you know if you need to replace your battery or not based on that test.

  13. Check Windshield Wiper Blades
  14. Your wipers keep your visibility intact when there’s rain or snow, so you want to make sure they can remove anything that falls on your windshield.

  15. Change Washer Fluid to Winter Blend
  16. The windshield washer fluid should be a winter blend to avoid freezing problems.

  17. Check/Replace Coolant and Antifreeze
  18. Your antifreeze levels are vital to keeping your coolant from freezing over.

  19. Roadside Safety Kit
  20. Our friendly staff will help you know what kinds of things to put in your emergency roadside safety kit.
