Winter Maintenance Services

  • Battery Testing - Batteries in Texas are at significant risk for short lives due to the summer heat causing rapid performance decline. Winter maintenance should always include a battery inspection with voltage testing to ensure peak readiness after a long, hot summer. Ford-certified battery inspections include a certified technician performing a visual assessment plus measuring the reserve capacity and cold-cranking amps.
  • Tire Inspection - With slippery roads and sub-zero temperatures possible this winter, be sure that your winter readiness plan includes a comprehensive tire inspection. Ford-certified tire inspections include a certified technician checking for irregular tread wear and damage, measuring the tread depth, and adjusting air pressures. With record snowfall in the not-so-distant past, you might want to consider switching to a winter tread tire for optimum traction this winter.
  • Windshield Wiper Blade Inspection - Windshield wiper blades are necessary to remove moisture, such as heavy rain, snow, ice, and wintery mix, this winter. Be sure to check the windshield wiper blades for winter maintenance, and replace them if damaged, leaving heavy streaks, or over a year old.
  • HVAC Inspection - Winter maintenance should include checking the defroster, heater, steering wheel, and seat warmers.
  • Windshield Washer Fluid - Many drivers install winter blend windshield washer fluid to remove ice more efficiently.
  • Coolant Fluid / Antifreeze - Check the coolant fluid/antifreeze, replenish as needed, and get exchange service if contaminated or at the recommended miles.
  • Roadside Assistance Kit - Always have a roadside assistance kit packed for winter. Contact us to get a genuine Ford OEM kit from the accessories department.
