Windshield wiper blades are one of the most underrated, yet most needed parts of the car. When they go bad it creates a driving impairment hazard for you and other cars on the road. While easy to ignore, new windshield wiper blades are the simplest way to improve your driving and safety while on the road. You might be asking yourself “How often should I change my wiper blades?” “Are there better wiper blades for the winter than the summer?” and here at Mr. Muffler we have the answers!
Other than the annoyance of having streaks on your windshield you limit your visibility and ability to drive safely. Whether it’s a freak downpour or a heavy snowstorm being able to navigate and arrive safely is directly related to how well you can see the road. When you have streaks and unclear view of the road you run a risk of a car accident. Having worn out and old wiper blades will directly affect how well you can see the road.
Another reason to change your wiper blades? Wear and tear on your windshield’s glass. Old and worn out wipers can cause damage to the glass on your windshield which is more expensive to replace than wiper blades.
Yes, there are! Summer vs. Winter wiper blades and structurally different and hold up differently. Winter wiper blades are sturdier and are build to avoid joints freezing. Summer wiper blades, by comparison, are lighter and have less rubber for the blade itself. Since you are only dealing with rain they don’t have to be as hardy as winter blades.
We here at Mr. Muffler recommend changing your windshield wipers every 6 months or every other oil change. We here at Mr. Muffler have stocks of winter and summer wiper blades available for purchase at your next oil change. Since we frequently run coupons and specials, your next pair doesn’t have to be at full price. Check out coupons and deals pages to see what is on special
Your coolant system is what keeps your car engine from overheating in the summer and from freezing in the winter. It works by coolant being pumped by the water pump through the engine into the radiator. The coolant takes heat away from the engine and dispels it through the radiator by airflow that comes through the grill of the car. If this system breaks down or isn’t maintained it can cause damage to your water pump. This damage over time will affect not only the coolant system but also your engine and engine’s performance as well. (more…)
