Important DC Auto Care Tips For Trouble-Free Winter Driving

Mind Your Tires

Worn tires can cause your car to skid, so check it for cuts, nicks, wears and cuppings. Aside from this, be sure to check your tires’ pressure at least once a month. While you’re at it, open the trunk and inspect the spare’s tire pressure and condition.

Get an Oil Change

Once you’ve logged 3000-5000 miles on your odometer, it’s recommended to get an oil change from DC shops like Capitol Hill Exxon to ensure optimal engine performance. During winter, mechanics may also recommend switching to 5W30 oil as its lower viscosity is more suited to colder temperatures.
