Now that drivers near Asbury Park are in the thick of winter, it’s important to start taking precautions to protect your 2020 Ford F-150 from the dropping temperatures. Here are three tips to properly equip your Ford pickup for winter’s harsh conditions.

Switch Out Your Tires

If you plan on using your Ford F-150 for heavy hauling during the winter season, you should equip your truck with snow tires for a confident ride. Take your truck into our Ford service center near Asbury Park to have them swapped out before the roads get slick with snow. Also, you should be monitoring your truck’s tire pressure regularly. For every 10 degrees the temperature drops, you’ll lose one pound of pressure.

Freshly-Flowing Fluids

During the cold winter months, your 2020 Ford F-150’s engine will be working overtime. Ensure that it’s up to the task by replacing your oil. This will help all of the engine components operate smoothly and efficiently. Additionally, make sure that you keep your antifreeze reservoir full. This will keep your engine in tip-top shape, even as the temperatures continue to drop.

Utilize De-Icing Fluid

Load your truck up with de-icing fluid. This affordable fluid is simple to use and can save you a lot of time and headaches. This winter-formulated windshield wiper fluid will cut through ice, helping you to save time from constantly scraping your windshield.

This winter season, make sure that your 2020 Ford F150 is ready for winter by visiting our service center, filling up your oil, and putting new snow shoes on your truck. Our service technicians at Lester Glenn Ford are always happy to help and we look forward to seeing you soon!
