Fall is around the corner in Oregon and if you’ve lived in the Portland area for a while, you know that the changing temperatures only mean one thing, cold weather is on the way.
Thankfully, you still have time to be prepared for cold weather in Oregon, and you can have your vehicle ready for the changing temperatures as well when you follow these tips.
Tip #1 – Check Your Vehicles Heater
One of the most important things to do before the start of fall, and winter in Oregon is to make sure that your vehicle’s heater is working.
Taking the time to review this in advance is important because there’s nothing word than driving a vehicle with no heat during cold winter months.
Besides checking your heater, you should also make sure your Oregon vehicle is defrosting as well because defrosting is vital on days where we have snow and ice.
Tip #2 – Get An Oil Change
If it’s been a while since you changed the oil in your vehicle’s engine, now is a great time for an oil change simply because the oil in your vehicle is its ‘life blood’ and you want to make sure that your vehicle will be able to continue starting up normally during the winter months.
During your oil change, you should also have your battery tested as well because the battery is another key to ensuring that your vehicle is going to start up normally during the winter months as well.
Tip #3 – Invest In New Wiper Blades
Last, of all, another important thing to do during the fall is to invest in new wiper blades for your vehicle because wiper blades will be your first line of defense at removing snow, ice, and sleet from your windshield during the winter.
