Preparing Your Vehicle for Winter Driving

Top Off Your Fluids. Inspect your antifreeze while your engine is cold by using a tester to check the mixture for its freeze point. Stop into Mighty Discount Automotive in Centereach 11720 to have all your fluids inspected and topped off.

Please refer to your owner's manual to ensure your are using the recommended oil. Mighty Discount Automotive can do that for you! Stop in today for an oil change in Centereach 11720.

Visually Inspect All Lights. Check marker bulbs, tail lights, third level brake lights, headlights and driving lights. Shorter days during the winter time require bulbs to work for longer hours.

Have Your Tires Checked and Replaced If Necessary. Winter driving requires traction in snow and ice. Check your tire pressure regularly. Please refer to your owners manuals for proper tire pressure. If you need any tire services or have any questions, please call Mighty Discount Auto today.

Check Your Wiper Blades. Make sure that your wiper blades are in top condition. Also make sure to check the back windshield blades as well.

Protect Your Car's Paint. Salt, snow and rain are tough on your car's paint. Apply a coating of a quality car wax. This will add another barrier between your car's paint and the everyday grime from the road.

Prepare an Emergency Kit.In the event of an accident, or if you become stranded have an emergency kit prepared.
