Fall Car Care Tips

Fall has officially arrived, and now is a great time to think about fall car care. As the seasons change, there are a few things you need to do to make sure your car can keep providing a safe ride all season long. Below, you can learn about a few inspections and services your car needs for a great drive this fall.

Battery check: Cold weather can drain your battery, so it’s important to make sure your battery is in good condition before the weather gets colder.

Antifreeze top-up: To prevent your engine from freezing when it gets colder out, be sure to check your antifreeze levels and top it up if necessary.

Oil change: Temperature changes can affect the viscosity of your oil, so be sure to have an oil change soon to keep your engine protected.

Light check: As the seasons change, the days get shorter. This means more driving in the dark. So be sure to have your lights checked and replaced if necessary.

Tire tread inspection: Make sure your tire tread is in great shape so you can drive safely on icy roads.

Tire pressure check: Cold weather can affect your tire pressure, so be sure to check it with every 10 degree temperature change to make sure they’re properly inflated.
Heating system check: Make sure your heating system is working properly before the cold sets in so you can stay comfortable this season.
