Fall Driving Tire Image

As we have mentioned in our previous post on getting your car ready for the fall weather,  you will be facing more challenging driving conditions. Colder and wetter road conditions make it more difficult for your tires to maintain their grip. You also need to ensure your battery and heating system won’t let you down by booking your fall weather service with the experts at Norlang Auto in Langley, BC.


It’s important in wet conditions to check the tread, inflation, and overall condition of your tires. Ensure your tires’ contain the appropriate amount of air because cold fall weather causes air pressure to drop. Don’t forget to check your spare tire as well to make sure it is also sufficiently inflated. Remember, tires that are in poor condition can be extremely dangerous on slippery roads. Bring your vehicle to Norlang where we specialize in servicing all of the latest Domestic and Import manufactured vehicles. With the latest tools, including a no-touch European tire machine and high-speed balancer, the technicians at Norlang can provide drivers with the driving experience that they deserve by ensuring proper tire performance.

Battery & Charging System

Fall is the perfect time to prepare your battery for the winter. If you notice your car battery is struggling now, there is a high probability that it will “die” on you during the colder winter weather. Therefore, fall is a good time to replace an older less reliable battery in order to avoid the hassle of a winter-time failure.

You should also have your battery charging system (alternator) checked now and keep the battery connections clean, tight and corrosion-free. Unfortunately, car batteries don’t always give warning signs before they fail. Consequently, you should test it before winter so you won’t end up stranded in the cold!

We have the proper diagnostic tools and staff to accurately diagnose starter and electrical system problems. What’s more, our professional technicians can run additional tests when necessary, on computer systems and the associated electrical systems in the vehicle. After the diagnosis, we can repair any problems that may have been identified by using quality parts to ensure reliable service for the life of your vehicle.

Heating System

When the weather begins to warm up, you need to check your A/C and when the weather begins to cool we, of course, need to check our vehicle’s heating system. You do not want to be “left out in the cold” because of a malfunctioning heater. Also, ensure your car’s defroster works since driving with a fogged-up windshield can be extremely dangerous. If you notice that either of these components is not working properly then you need to visit us as soon as possible.
