Winter Truck Maintenance Tips for Tackling the Cold

2018 RAM Trucks

Winter is officially in full swing. Whether you love it or hate it, one thing is certain: daily life must go on no matter the conditions out there. And since you don’t stop working, your pickup shouldn’t either. Follow these simple winter truck maintenance tips and get ready to tackle the winter weather like a pro.

Battery

Cold weather puts additional strain on your truck battery and can easily turn a failing battery into a dead one. So before you’re literally left stranded in the cold, test your truck’s battery and replace it if it isn’t holding a full charge.

Tires

Tires are the only points of contact between your truck and the road, so it’s crucial they are in top condition during winter. Monitor tread, alignment, and pressure regularly and consider installing special winter tires.

Oil

Routinely changing your truck’s oil is one of the easiest ways to keep everything running smoothly, and this is especially true in winter. You might also want to consider switching to a winter-grade motor oil that performs best in cold weather.

Wipers

Even if everything else is working perfectly, you simply won’t be safe without great visibility in winter. If your truck’s wiper blades are cracked, bent, or just not working like they used to, replace them now before it’s too late.
