How to Maintain Your Vehicle This Fall

Purchase the best products for your vehicle's maintenance through AMSOIL's online shop or by calling Marland Enterprises at (315) 727-4645.

The Battery

The first step should be to take proper care of the battery. Even though your vehicle's battery should be in perfect working condition all year round, the harsh conditions that the fall season brings with it make having a well-maintained battery all the more important. This is because, as you may be aware, the days are shorter, darker, and rainier during the fall, meaning you'll have to use your wipers, headlights, and other devices that are powered by the battery. Have a professional mechanic take a look at it, provide the necessary maintenance, and replace it when the time for it comes, so you're never stranded on the side of the road because of a dead battery.

The Tires

Having good tires will help ensure that you will have smooth, safe rides in your vehicle. Still, as the conditions on the road change during the fall months (the dead leaves can make the roads slippery, the temperature of the asphalt drops, there's precipitation that could make your tires skid, and more), it is necessary that you keep your tires in mind. To that end, have a look at them every so often to ensure they're not damaged or too worn down. Likewise, be sure to pay attention to how inflated they are, as the wrong air level can be problematic. Remember to do this for all of your tires, including the spare.

The Headlights

Sight is probably the most crucial sense you use when you're driving, since you depend on it in order to react accordingly to the situations that present themselves on the road. As mentioned above, the days are darker and shorter during this time of year. Moreover, rainfall and snowfall are to be expected. All of this makes seeing the road ahead a bit more difficult, which is why you need to take care of your headlights (aside from making sure that your battery is in top shape). If upon inspection, you find that they're foggy, or out, change them promptly so they can light your way effectively.

Keep your engine in top shape with the most effective synthetic oil in Cazenovia, AMSOIL Signature Series 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil.

The Wipers

Once again, visibility is incredibly important, and having a clear windshield is crucial for it. This is why you need to make sure that the windshield wipers will be able to remove all of the rain, snow, hail, and debris that hit it and cover it up. As you can probably imagine, time and use can take a toll on your windshield wipers. Furthermore, the sun can cause damage on them and render them useless. If you don't want your windshield to be obstructed, check the wipers and replace them if it's necessary.

The AC System

Another significant change that comes with the fall season is a drop in temperature. This means that, to drive around comfortably, you need to have the heat on, lest you want to be freezing in your vehicle. For that reason, it is imperative that you also have the AC system serviced as the fall months begin, since it won't be able to keep you warm if it's not in proper shape. Moreover, you should have the AC system looked at to ensure that the 'defrost' setting can clear up your windshield if it becomes cloudy because of the change in temperatures inside and outside of the vehicle.

The Fluids

The last tip you should follow regarding your vehicle's maintenance this fall is to get your fluids checked. As you may be aware, several components in your vehicle depend on fluids to lubricate, protect, and help them function as expected. For instance, the cooling system is in need of coolant in order to regulate the temperature in your vehicle. Another important example is the engine, which requires synthetic oil to remain strong and powerful for longer. That's why you should take a look at the different fluids your vehicle needs, to guarantee that they will be able to fulfill their service.

If you want to ensure your vehicle will make it through the fall, purchase the best synthetic oil in Cazenovia. Browse AMSOIL's online shop or call Marland Enterprises at (315) 727-4645 to place an order today.
