Winter Service Options Help Get Your Car Ready for Cold Weather in Maryland

Winter Tire Service

Buy new tires, get tires for your Kia, find all-season tires and snow tires at our Cumberland car parts center.

Battery Service

It may seem like a simple thing, but a battery that performs well in summer and fall may not fare as well when the temperatures start to drop. Cold starts are the hardest thing for your car battery to overcome, and you don't want to wait until you're stranded and waiting for a jump to find out yours wasn't up to the task. Visit our Kia service center from Hancock or Frostburg MD and we'll test your battery to see if it needs to be replaced before the winter months descend.

Oil Changes

This basic service is important all year long, but it becomes even more important when dealing with chilly winter temperatures. Your engine oil is responsible for lubricating your engine, but cold oil doesn't flow as well upon initial startup. This situation is only made worse as your oil sees more heat cycles and wear, making cold starts harsher on your internal engine parts if left unchanged. Having fresh oil and a new filter helps your engine run better in cold weather, ensuring it can live a longer life.

Coolant

You might think of your engine coolant as strictly a summer issue, but it actually faces more hazards in winter! That's because old coolant can lose its ability to remain fluid at extremely low temperatures. In short, it can freeze, blocking your entire cooling system and causing major problems inside your engine. Additionally, your coolant is responsible for running the heat exchanger that runs your cabin heating system, meaning it works even harder during the winter than during the summer. Having your coolant refreshed and your cooling system flushed and checked for leaks can ensure your engine's health through the winter months ahead.

HVAC System

While your coolant is certainly a part of your HVAC system functioning properly this winter, there are other components that should be inspected before the cold weather hits as well. For example, the heat exchanger is a high-wear item thanks to the frequent fluctuations in temperature that it goes through, and should it become compromised it can cause a coolant leak. Having it checked once a year is enough to keep you ahead of most problems that might arise. In addition, the cabin air filter has the potential to trap contaminants that will be exacerbated by running warm air through the system. A fresh cabin air filter will help reduce unpleasant, musty odors and the potential for mildew from pent up moisture within the system.

Alignment Service

Your vehicle handling is never more important than when it snows, and having your suspension and wheels aligned is the only way to get your vehicle handling like new. With our laser measurement tools and expert technicians, we can get your alignment sorted so you can drive with greater confidence this winter.
