Even if you live in a hot area like LA, it’s important to have routine maintenance done on your car, and the seasons are a good way to schedule around it. So for all you LA residents, here’s a list of winter car maintenance tasks you should get done this season.
This is a good time to get an oil change, for one. Oil changes should be done about twice a year depending on your car and your driving habits, and before winter is a good time—maybe you’ll be traveling somewhere cold for the holidays and need that fresh, clean oil.
Another good thing to do is replace your air filters. This helps your heating and cooling system work better, but even if you’re not using those, it’s just better for your car. This also goes for flushing and refilling the cooling system.
Check your tire pressure. You won’t experience the same drop in pressure that people living in colder climates do, but any change in air temperature can have an effect. Having the right tire pressure is important year-round.
