Fall is here, and along with cooler weather comes car maintenance tasks. When the weather begins to change it is always best to check up on your vehicle and prepare it for what the new season brings. Here are a few tips to keep your car in shape for the autumn days to come!
Parking under a tree is great for the shade, but as the fall season starts to set in, leaves begin to change color and fall from the trees. If your car gets covered in leaves, it’s important to clean them off as quickly as possible. Letting leaves sit on your car can damage the paint, and they can clog up the air filters.
2) Tire Pressure
As the temperature fluctuates, so do your tires. Most cars have tire pressure sensors that will let you know if a tire is too low. But if your car does not offer this feature, then take some time to check the air in your tires, and fill them accordingly.
Oil changes are a simple way to keep your car in great shape, and generally only need to be done every few months. When the season changes, it’s a good time to get an oil changed, that way you know that your vehicle is performing at its best.
It’s important to make sure your heater is functioning properly before the cooler temperatures arrive. Turn on your heater at full blast for about 15 minutes to make sure it is functioning properly. You don’t want to end up discovering that your heater is broken as soon as a cold front comes sweeping through!
