Winter Vehicle Maintenance Checklist

Scraping ice from car windows

No matter what type of vehicle you drive, it will last longer and perform at its best if you practice regular maintenance. Use this winter vehicle maintenance checklist to stay on top of your vehicle services this season.


Check your coolant levels to ensure that your engine will cool properly while you’re on the road this winter. If needed, top of your coolant levels with a 50/50 mixture of coolant and water, or a pre-mixed, store bought mixture.


Car batteries are sensitive to low temperatures, so an older battery might not do well in the winter season. Have your vehicle’s battery checked and replaced if needed.

Wiper Blades

With rain, snow, ice, and the grime that builds up from road salts, it’s important to have functioning wiper blades on your car during the winter. Replace your car’s wiper blades every six months, or whenever they begin to leave streaks or residue when used.


Like the car battery, tires are sensitive to the cold, which can cause air pressure to fluctuate. Check the air pressure on your car’s tires regularly, and get in the habit of inspecting them for damages like cracks and bulges.

Oil Change

It’s important to get regular oil changes for your vehicle. Bring your car to Mike Raisor Auto Group to have the oil changed this winter, and trust our professional, expert team to get your car in winter-ready condition.
