In the winter the load jumps about three times more than that in the summer, and the battery is only about 50 per cent efficient. Be certain the battery is fully charged, cable terminals are good and holds down tight. Let us inspect yours. We service any make. Testing free. SPECIAL LUBRICATION Many people neglect to have their cars changed to winter lubricants. How does your car start in the morning? Does the motor turn over slowly even with a new battery? Perhaps your oil needs changing, or you need winter gear lubricant. Better let us change lubricants and Alemite chassis now.
