Fall brings cool weather and stunning scenery. Regular maintenance can not only improve the resale value of your car, but also extend its life and prevent future breakdowns. Learn the best ways to take care of your car with these fall maintenance tips.
According to The Car Connection, it is crucial to check your tires and breaks. The cooler temperatures can lower the tire pressure in your car, increasing the risk of a blowout. While you’re at it, check for uneven wear and tear, bulging, and cracking in the rubber. These are all signs that you need new tires before winter.
Next, top off fluids; this includes coolant, wiper fluid, transmission fluid, brake fluid, and power steering fluid. Most drivers realize their vehicle needs an oil change about every three months, but few people realize that they should top off other vehicle fluids this frequently.
Finally, check your lights. Proper visibility is a must in the fall, since there is typically lessdaylight than in the spring and summer. Have a friend help you check your taillights, headlights, blinker, reverse lights, and fog lights.
