Prepare the Car for Season Change Weather

The seasons have changed and the weather will follow suit soon as well. Don't let yourself get caught behind take care of your car now. Some important things to do now before the weather totally changes are:'

  • Make sure your brakes and tires are in good condition. Bad weather could leave roads hazardous, having good tires and brakes is very important. Check tires for wore areas if you find any you may need to replace the tires Many times tire shops will inspect the car to see if new brakes and tires are needed if you are unsure. 

  • As my daughter in law says the season means shorter days and longer nights. This is why it is important to check the lights. All lights including headlights, taillights, parking lights, brake lights, and emergency flashers should be checked. Any in non working condition should be repaired and / or changed. 

  • Wiper blades should be checked to see if they are cracked or worn. Wiper blades rubber should be flexible and able to do the job they are meant to do. IF blades are not in good working condition they should be replaced

  • One item needed during the cold months but left alone much of the rest of the year is the heater / defroster. Fogged up windows is an accident waiting to happen. Both the heater and defroster should be examined before use. 
  • Cold weather can have an effect on the car battery. A fully charged battery is needed to start the car Signs of corrosion on battery terminals or cable ends or any loose connections the battery will need to be checked
  • In addition take a look under the hood are there any leaks, cracks or loose clamps?? Are there any fraying belts that need to be replaced. The oil and air filters should be changed and cleaned. 
  • Fill the cooling system with AAA coolant 
Start now , prepare your car for the fall weather will help you get a headstart preparing for the cold weather
