How to Winterize Your Vehicle in Jersey City

Our service team here at Stevens Jersey City Ford want to make sure you're ready for the coldest temperatures and slick road conditions. Here are some service needs to keep you safe and warm, ready to face winter!

  • Get Your Car Serviced to Prepare for Winter Conditions: We'll make sure to check all the important systems that get hit the hardest by the cold and snow. Systems and parts may include your battery, cooling system, brakes, belts, wires, and hoses.
  • Install Winter Wipers: Regular wipers are right for rainy days, but they aren't equipped to manage ice buildup during the winter. Winter wipers are heavier, providing the perfect way to keep your windshield clear of ice, snow, and salt from the road.
  • Keep Washer Fluid Topped Off: You should always ensure that your windshield wiper fluid is topped off and replaced often. Snowstorms can drain your reserve quickly, sometimes in a single drive based on the conditions. We'll top off your wiper fluid and make sure to use a fluid that is graded for colder temperatures.
  • Make the Switch to Winter Tires: Winter tires are the only type truly graded to provide the best performance through snow-covered roads. Our service experts will help you pick out the best ones and install them for you!
  • Keep Your Gas Tank at Least Half-Full: Cold temperatures are known to freeze your gas lines, making it difficult to start your vehicle and provide a safe drive. By keeping your fuel tank at least half-full, you reduce condensation in the gas lines and keeps your car on when you find yourself stuck on the side of the road.
  • Make Sure Your Defrosters are in Working Condition: Your window defrosters are responsible for keeping your windshield and rear window clear of frost and ice. If they aren't in working order, it can compromise your vision and make it difficult to drive safely. We'll make sure they stay in proper working order!
