Check Your Vehicle's Fluid Levels

Several fluids keep your vehicle performing efficiently and safely. Davenport drivers must maintain the recommended level for engine oil, coolant, power and steering, brake and transmission fluid. If your oil is thickening to sludge or your transmission fluid is deep red and brown instead of pink, you need a flush and new fluids.

Inspect the Tires

Rock Island motorists want to make sure their tires are rock solid for the road ahead. Having your tires rotated helps, as does adequate tire tread depth. Make sure your tire pressure is adequate. For every 10-degree drop in temperatures around the Quad Cities, your tire pressure's PSI value drops by one. Davenport drivers can also equip their Ford or another vehicle with winter tires from Sexton Ford to provide increased traction.

Examine Lights & Windshield Wipers

Don't let visibility become a safety hazard driving around Davenport. As snow, ice, and condensation accumulate on the windshield, Moline motorists need working windshield wipers to counteract these visibility concerns. Equip your Ford with new windshield wipers if they haven't been replaced in the last six to 12 months.

Have our Ford-certified technicians inspect your car's electrical system and also replace any cabin lights, headlights, tail lights, brake lights, fog lights, turn signals or burnt out bulbs so you can see and be seen while driving across the Quad Cities.

Inspect the Suspension

Your Ford's shocks and struts may be wearing out or suffering from wear and tear. Have your suspension tuned at our Ford service center in Moline, IL. This way, you can ride smoothly during wintry months and traverse snow with ease.

Check the Exhaust System

Don't have your exhaust system cause you trouble this winter. Check for any exhaust leaks, broken supports, or additional damage.

Check Belts & Hoses

All belts and hoses need to be checked as they work together to keep your Ford running. Failure of belts and hoses can lead to an overheated engine, a downed electrical system, or a loss of power steering. None of these are fun to deal with while driving around Moline this upcoming winter.
