Seasonal maintenance for your car or pickup truck is important this time of year, as temperatures start to drop, colourful leaves start to drop, and pumpkins decorate doorways. Every season puts demands on your vehicle, and Autumn is no exception. Here are some things you should do to make sure your car or truck is ready for the cooler months ahead.
- Check Your Tires
As the weather starts to cool down, it’s important to make sure your tires are in good condition. Cold weather can cause tire pressure to drop, so it’s a good idea to check your tire pressure regularly this time of year. You should also check for any cracks or bald spots on your tires, as these can become more pronounced in colder weather. If you’re not sure how to check your tire pressure or condition, we’ll be happy to help.
- Get an Oil Change
It’s also important to get an oil change this time of year. Cooler weather puts more strain on your engine, so making sure you have fresh oil is crucial. Depending on how often you drive, you may need to get your oil changed more frequently in the fall and winter months. Our oil change and lube service is one of the most popular auto services booked this time of year.
- Winterize Your Windshield Wipers
Your windshield wipers are another important component of your car or truck that needs some attention this time of year. Make sure they are in good condition and able to clear away any debris that may accumulate on your windshield during a windy day. You may also want to consider getting winterized windshield wipers, as these are designed to withstand freezing temperatures and perform better in snowy conditions.
