Winter Service at Packey Webb Ford

Your vehicle works hard to keep you warm and safe in the dead of winter, and we need to do our part by performing scheduled maintenance and inspections. These simple tips will en­sure your vehicle is prepared for the winter roads.


Start with a wash and wax. A thorough wash and wax will help with potential corrosion from prolonged exposure to road salt and ice. Make sure to consider the undercarriage and wheel-wells where salt build up may not be immediately visible.

Maintain your tire pressure. Cold air during the winter months can change the air pressure in most tires. Let's make sure that all your tires are properly inflated and balanced. You can easily check inside your car door to find out what the proper air pressure should be. Also check the pressure on your spare tire.

When the snow starts to melt, be sure to have your brakes inspected. This is the most important part of your car aside from the engine itself, and keeping it maintained (including hoses, lines, brake pads and fluid) should prioritized.

Your batteries and plugs provide the energy to start your car and work harder than in the winter. Winter stress can compromise their performance. Testing and replacing weak batteries or electrical components at least every three years can help you avoid a costly tow down the road.

For a smooth ride ahead, have your suspension and wheel alignment inspect¬ed. Potholes can severely damage shocks and struts. Having your car inspected and correct¬ed early could prevent costly repairs and replacements in the future.

Illinois winters are brutal and no one wants to be stuck out in the cold.
