Be Ready for Winter With Tips from Tom Denchel


Here in the Hermiston, Pendleton, OR and Kennewick and Prosser, WA areas, we're ready for full on winter mode. At Tom Denchel, we want to make sure all drivers have the services they need to keep them safe and secure when driving through the winter weather, and that's why we have these service tips on how to be ready for winter with auto service.

To start, we always advise getting winter tires. It's a simple changeout for our team, and if you need to purchase a set we have you covered in that area as well. Winter tires provide added tread and traction so when there's snow, or other wet and slippery winter roads, you have a vehicle that can provide added grip and hopefully prevent some sliding that you might experience with regular tires.

Along with the snow tires, having a battery checked is a good idea too. Our service team can cover you there as well and let you know your car battery levels, while also providing you with battery options to install a new one for you. This is important because you want to be sure your vehicle can start in cold weather, and you won't need help from a car jump should it not. Along with that, checking your heating system is a good idea, because staying warm inside is important and your heating system works with the defrosters to get snow and ice and other build up off your windows so you can drive clearly, and safely. In addition to that, you should check your wiper blades to see if you need some new ones to help get the snow and wetness off the windshield, as well.

Finally, a fluid check is also a good idea. Making sure you've had an oil change recently, plus topping off your fluid levels is smart because low fluid levels in freezing temperatures can lead to freezing of the fluid, which impacts vehicle functions.

Whatever winter services you need, we're here to help with our service center at Tom Denchel, so contact us and we can get started today!
