Autumn is on the way, which means it’s time to prepare your car. Check out the following fall car maintenance tips.
Check tire air pressure and tread: As the weather changes, so will tire pressure. For every 10 degrees the temperature changes, air pressure can decrease one to two pounds. Check the tread to make sure the tire hasn’t worn.
Get a tune-up: Keeping cars properly tuned increases gas mileage.
Check the lights: There will be less sunlight as the year goes on, so make sure all your car lights are operating properly.
Check your battery: You’ll need a fully charged battery, especially as the temperatures dip.
Check all fluid levels: Make sure the power steering, transmission, and brake fluids are all at acceptable levels.
Check the air filter: Summer driving is great, but it means the air filter has accumulated dust and other debris. Make sure to change a dirty air filter.
Check the wiper blades: Make sure they’re not cracked or damaged, and if they are, get a new pair.
Examine the exhaust system: Check for any leaks that could pose a problem to the car’s operation.
