As part of the winter service, we will carry out a 20 point check that includes:

  • Change the oil to eliminate moisture & prevent corrosion. If you don’t, moisture can cause excessive wear, lead to loss of power, poor fuel economy & possible engine failure.
  • Fit Quicksilver Storage Seal to the engine preventing corrosion, deterioration and seizing through the winter months while in storage.
  • Drain the cooling system of water to prevent freezing and damage to the engine.
  • Drain the engine & gear-case lubricant. Check seals. (Inboards & Sterndrives)
  • Check fuel filter and add Quickare Fuel Treatment and Quickstop Fuel Stabilizer.
  • Fuel & oil hoses need checking. Brittle or hard hoses can fail causing major damage.
  • Check parts that need replacing.
  • Check electronics for repairs or upgrades. All bilge pumps operation will need a safety check.
  • Batteries can fail at the most inconvenient time. Consider fitting a CTek Charger to keep the battery in top condition over the winter. Letting batteries sit over the winter months is one of the biggest causes of battery failure.
