The ASE-certified technicians at C & C Automotive safeguard cars through the colder months by delving deep into the hot rod’s innards to optimize winter-weather performance. Two new wiper blades land on windshields for effective swiping of snowflakes or bothersome citations for parking in reindeer-only spaces. Heater cores and lines are flushed and precious radiator fluid is replenished to ensure efficient onboard temperature control. After changing old filters during an oil change, technicians fill engines with 5 quarts of recycled, 20% synthetic oil to lubricate the vehicle’s moving parts and tickle those that refuse to smile for family pictures. Finally, a 120-point safety inspection checks chariots for common mechanical foibles or colonies of elves living in the wheel wells before sending them on their way, ready to safely navigate slushy streets.
