Prepare for Cold Weather at Alameda Auto Lab

Alameda, California (EastBayDaily) — As the weather gets colder, it is important to have vehicles checked to make sure they are ready for the winter.

The staff at Alameda Auto Lab recommends checking the vehicle’s coolant and heating systems, the thermostat, and all hoses, drive belts, pulleys and fluids. It is also a good idea to check all the exterior lights as it gets darker earlier, as well as the tires and tire pressure. Under-inflated tires increase rolling resistance and can cause a one to two MPG decrease in fuel economy.

Alameda Auto Lab is offering a December brake special, where they replace the front brake pads and rotors, check the rear brakes, and clean and adjust the rear brakes as necessary. They also have a transmission fluid exchange service, and a coolant fluid flush and addition of new fluid. The latter is recommended by manufactures that use special fluids. They also still sell propane and have Penske truck rentals available at very good pricing.

To get price quotes for the December special Alameda Auto Lab is offering, call 510-863-8098. For more information, please visit their website.
