How to Maintain Your Vehicle This Fall

Look After the Battery

First of all, you need to look after the battery, because without a functional battery, you won't be able to even turn the vehicle on, let alone drive it around (no matter what time of the year it is). However, as fall advances, the days become darker, shorter, rainier, and chillier, so you need a functioning battery to endure all of the harsher conditions. To that end, take proper care of the battery, and have your vehicle inspected by a professional mechanic. This way, you won't be left out stranded on the side of the road due to a dead battery.

Check the Tires

The vehicle's tires are what roll you to your destination. Not only that, but while they do, they hold the weight of your vehicle up and they are in constant contact with the road. This combined could easily take a toll on them on its own. Still, during the fall, the change in the asphalt's temperature, the slippery conditions on the road (from precipitation, dead leaves, etc.), and other factors can actually affect your tires' wear and tear process and how they function, too. To keep them rolling smoothly and avoid problems related to them, you should pay attention to them. Check them (even the spare) to ensure they're not worn down, or deflated. If needed, replace them to keep you safe.

Pay Attention to the Headlights

Needless to say, visibility is incredibly important when you're driving around: you need to see the road in front of you, the objects and conditions on it. Moreover, other vehicles need to be able to see you, too. Nonetheless, seeing and being seen can be made all the more difficult during this time of year since, as stated above, the days are shorter and darker. That's why it is imperative that you pay attention to your headlights: are they foggy?, is one of them out?, are they lighting the way properly? If you see an issue with them (aside from taking care of the battery), address it promptly.

Protect your engine year round with AMSOIL Signature Series 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil, the best synthetic oil in Pewaukee.

Don't Forget the Wipers

And since we're already talking about the importance of visibility when driving, you should also take the wipers into consideration. After all, how can you see out your windshield if it is covered in rain, snow, or other form of precipitation? As you can probably guess, however, your wipers can wear down after some time, use, and sun exposure. That's why, to guarantee that they'll be able to wipe your windshield clean of any obstruction, you need to check them with some regularity. If they're not in the best shape, get them replaced so you don't have to go without them and put yourself in peril if it starts to rain.

Service the AC System

It's no secret that the weather changes with the fall season. Mainly, the temperatures drop and the days start becoming chillier. In that scenario, having the heater on can help you stay warm while you're driving around town. Not only that, but during the colder days, your windows and windshield can get foggy due to the difference in temperatures inside and outside of the vehicle. No wonder, this can interfere with your ability to pay attention to the road. Still, for that to happen, your AC system should be in perfect working condition. Have a professional service it, so that it won't fail on you this fall.

Mind the Fluids

Lastly, remember to take a look at your vehicle's fluids, since they're an integral part of its components functioning, and do require regular maintenance. For example, you need to consider the engine's synthetic oil, as it is the one responsible for lubricating and protecting it. Verify that it's at the right level, clean, and in proper condition, so that your engine stays healthy and strong. You should also care for the coolant, since it helps out the cooling system work smoothly and efficiently, so it can regulate your vehicle's temperature during the fall months.
