There may not be a chill in the air yet, but fall has officially begun and with it comes different weather elements we need to protect against. Get your ride ready for fall with these tips.
Find a Mechanic
Find a mechanic that you can trust. This can be a local one or the one that is at your dealership. This will ensure that you can go to have various things checked, including:
Set a Schedule
Set a schedule for when certain things need to happen. This includes having your air filter replaced, your oil replaced, and more. Depending upon the age of your car, you may need to have your spark plugs replaced as well.
Make Some Replacements
There are some replacements that you may want to consider so that you are prepared for autumn as well as winter. If it has been a while since you replaced your battery, you may want to add it to the list. Your wiper blade should also be replaced in the autumn so that it is capable of clearing the windshield as needed.
Use a Tire Pressure Gauge
It is a good idea to have a tire pressure gauge in your car at all times. Check the tire pressure to ensure that it matches what is recommended for your car – and this is found in the owner’s manual. You may need to add or subtract air from the tires in order to meet the ideal pressure as the temperature fluctuates.
