Engine Performance - Get engine driveability problems (hard starts, rough idling, stalling, diminished power, etc.) corrected at
a good repair shop. Cold weather makes existing problems worse. Replace dirty filters-air, fuel, etc.
Fuel - Put a bottle of fuel de-icer in your tank once a month to help keep moisture from freezing in the fuel line. Note that a
full gas tank helps keep moisture from forming.
Oil - Change your oil and oil filter as specified in your manual--more often (every 5,000 kilometers) if your driving is mostly
stop-and-go or consists of frequent short trips.
Cooling Systems - The cooling system should be completely flushed and refilled about every 24 months. The level, condition,
and concentration of the coolant should be checked periodically. (A 50/50 mix of anti-freeze and water is usually recommended.)
DIYers, never remove the radiator cap until the engine has thoroughly cooled! The tightness and condition of drive belts, clamps,
and hoses should be checked by a pro.
Windshield Wipers - Replace old blades. If your climate is harsh, purchase rubber-clad (winter) blades to fight ice build-up.
Stock up on windshield washer solvent-you'll be surprised how much you use. Carry an ice-scraper.
Always consult your owner's manual, but a good rule of thumb is to have the oil filter changed regularly - every 5,000
Have all fluids checked, including brake, power steering, transmission/transaxle, windshield washer solvent and
antifreeze. These fluids play a large role in the safety and performance of the vehicle.
Check tire inflation. Under-inflated tires can result in a loss of fuel efficiency. This is the least expensive form of
preventive and safety maintenance. Tires should be checked once a month.
Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency by as much
as 30 percent.
Have the chassis lubricated frequently. This step extends the life of the moving components of the vehicle's suspension
Check battery cables and posts for corrosion and clean them as needed. The battery fluid also should be checked and
filled if it is low, unless it is a maintenance-free battery.
Have the lighting system checked frequently, including headlights, turn signals, and brake and taillights.
Check windshield washer blades for cracks, tears and windshield contact. Replace them at least once a year, or sooner
if streaking begins.
Inspect engine belts regularly. Worn belts will affect the engine performance. Look for cracks and missing sections or
Have the air filtration system checked frequently. The air filter should be checked every other oil change for clogging
or damage. This system ensures that the vehicle is performing at its peak condition.
