Winter Ready Service at Royal Moore Toyota

Rely on the Royal Moore Toyota Service Center to Prep Your Vehicle for Winter Driving

Winter driving is far from a fan favorite. Nevertheless, it's important for Oregonians and motorists across the Pacific Northwest to have their vehicle prepped for winter months, regardless of how much snow and wintry mix precipitation falls.

The Royal Moore Toyota service center in Hillsboro, OR is home to a team of factory-trained technicians who strive to keep Portland drivers safe and their vehicles running smoothly, even as winter weather kicks in and road conditions deteriorate. Drivers from Beaverton and Forest Grove can rely on our Toyota service center for winter maintenance and recommended winter vehicle prep tips!

Systems & Vehicle Components to Check to Make Sure Your Car Is Prepared for Winter

Have Your Toyota's Battery Tested

Car batteries often fail or lose battery life in cold winter temperatures. As battery lifespan shortens, it may be more difficult for Forest Grove drivers to start their car in the winter. Have our Toyota service center conduct a battery test to get an accurate voltage reading and provide a battery replacement, if necessary.

Monitor Tire Pressure

Every 10 degrees the temperature drops, Beaverton drivers can expect their tire pressure to decrease by one PSI. If your tires are losing pressure and it's noticeable, make sure you have them filled back up to the proper PSI, typically around 32. Don't risk a flat tire, which can occur from a blowout when your tire pressure drops too low. We'll also provide a tire rotation, help install new tires, and check tire tread depth. That way neither braking distance or stoppage time are compromised.

Equip Your Toyota With Winter Tires

Rely on the Royal Moore Toyota parts center to equip your vehicle with winter tires, which have a special tread design that provides additional traction. They're specifically designed for use on roads with snow, ice, and wintry mix. Winter tires are important regardless of snowfall and prove useful when temps dip below 45 degrees in Portland.

Check Your Lights

Make sure you can see and be seen on your drives from Beaverton to downtown Portland and everywhere in between. We'll check all your lights and replace any bulbs for headlamps, headlights, fog lights, taillights and more.

Flush & Fill Engine Coolant

Visit our Toyota service center in Hillsboro, OR to get fresh engine coolant for the winter. This antifreeze fluid helps prevent your engine from freezing in extreme cold weather. We'll flush your old engine coolant and replenish it with fresh fluid so your Toyota's engine maintains a proper temperature.

Test Defroster & Heating Systems

Make sure you stay warm in your Toyota Highlander's cabin. We'll test the heating systems and also test the defroster so you can properly combat winter precipitation and moisture from accumulating and obscuring your view.

Top Off Windshield Washer Fluid & Make Sure Your Wiper Blades Are Fully Functioning

Working wiper blades will help make sure you shake off any form of winter precipitation. We'll top off your windshield washer fluid, too! Order new wiper blades from our Toyota parts center!

Change Your Oil

Don't go the whole winter without an oil change. We want to keep your Toyota running smoothly and efficiently by making sure all engine parts are properly lubricated.

Additional Winter Service Tips

Hillsboro drivers need to keep their gas tank filled up and not have it be less than ¼ full. Fuel often runs out quicker in colder temps. Don't run out. Keep your eye out on Portland roads and pay attention to the winter conditions. Whenever your Toyota seems to be having trouble, make sure you come into Royal Moore Toyota service center right away!
