It’s that time of year again, time to prepare for winter driving. What can you do to make sure your vehicle is ready for the winter and prepared for the holiday trips?
First of all, you want to check your owner’s manual for all your maintenance requirements. We recommend you follow the severe driving recommendations as we do have extreme colds during our winters. At Jiffy Lube, we will show you your vehicle’s manufacturer’s recommendations for all your maintenance needs, including the oil change. Besides changing the oil, you want to check all the other critical components of your vehicle. Make sure all your fluids are full, the filters (including air filter, cabin air filter and fuel filter if equipped) are clean, the tire pressure is set to the recommended pressure and the spare tire is properly inflated as well. Be sure to use the manufacturer’s recommended weight of oil.
Keeping the oil clean, the filters clean and the tires rotated and properly inflated will help you maximize your fuel efficiency. Jiffy Lube also provides many other services to help you get the most from your fuel economy. We have TX7, which is an additive installed once a year that will improve your engine’s performance.

And lastly, you want to make sure you have emergency essentials in your vehicle to be prepared. Some of those items include: flashlight and extra batteries, flares, shovel, ice scraper, blankets, bottled water and snacks
