Fall Vehicle Maintenance Checklist

Keep your car in great shape with this Fall vehicle maintenance checklist

With October being Fall Car Care Month, you may want to start thinking about how you can ensure your vehicle’s longevity and keep it running in the here and now. There are a number of key maintenance steps you should take for your vehicle every autumn; these are just some of the key suggestions to consider.

 

Oil and fluids

Your vehicle’s motor oil, brake fluid, transmission fluid, power steering fluid, windshield wiper fluid, and coolant are all essential components to consistent operation. You should be checking these on the regular, and it’s even more important that you check your levels after a grueling summer. If you need a change or a top off, look no further than Gossett Hyundai Mazda Mitsubishi.

 

Heating

With the weather getting cooler, you’ll want to make sure that you have full use of your heating and defrosting functions. While you’re getting that checked, we’ll make sure that your air conditioner is still in good shape after putting it to the test during the dog days of summer.

 

Battery

Colder temps put a big strain on your battery, so it’s important to make sure you have enough energy to get through the season. We can test your battery levels and let you know if you are coming due for a replacement. If you aren’t sure, keep in mind that batteries tend to last between five and six years at the most.

Summer Service Tips

Use these summer service tips to make sure your car thrives this season

The summer season is coming in hot, and it pays to have a vehicle that can handle the increase in temperatures and vacation travels. A vehicle operating at peak performance will make hitting the open road much more enjoyable. These summer service tips will make sure your car can handle the hottest season of the year and get you where you need to go in comfort and style.

Cooling System

A car’s cooling system is a necessity in preventing the engine from overheating. As a general rule, the cooling system should be flushed and refilled every two years. A 50/50 mix of antifreeze and water is recommended for most climates. If you plan on taking care of this maintenance yourself, make sure to leave the radiator cap in place until the engine has cooled. Make sure to have the belts and hoses inspected by a certified technician.

Oil

The engine oil is responsible for cooling, lubricating, and protecting the vital parts of the engine. Fresh oil performs its duties much better than old oil. Consult your owner’s manual to determine how often the manufacturer recommends changing the oil.

Lights

You should inspect your car’s lights every few weeks, and the beginning of the summer season is the perfect opportunity to do just that. Perform a walk around of the vehicle and replace any burned out bulbs. Clean the lenses and inspect them for cracks while you’re at it!

These are just some of the many steps you can take to make sure that your vehicle is up for the task of summer driving. If you need help getting there, the service pros at Gossett Hyundai Mazda Mitsubishi have the expertise and know-how you need.
