Fall Service Tips

 


With the busy summer months behind us, fall is here. We are well aware that you have been putting off taking care of your vehicle. But now that it’s here, you should still take care of your car for the autumn weather. (Yes, even though it’s Florida.) Here are our top 5 tips for taking care of your car the best way possible for the season:

Check Tire Pressure: With the cooler weather, your tire pressure can dip. Tires can lose one pound of pressure for every drop of 10 degrees. That means you need to make sure you are following the pressure outlined in the owner’s manual for your vehicle.

Make sure the heater/defroster works: There are the occasional days when it gets chilly here in Florida and driving with an improperly working heater isn’t wise. And even worse is driving with fogged-up windows.You should make sure that both your front and rear window defrosters are working properly and if they aren’t, we can help make sure they do.

Change Oil and Filter: Changing your oil is always important. If you’re at your recommended oil change time, change your oil. Also, when changing your oil, have your air filter checked too to ensure that it is clean enough to allow for proper operation.

Check all fluid levels: This includes washer fluid, transmission, brake and power steering fluids. Make sure they are all at or above minimum safe levels and refill as necessary.

Get a good car wash/detail: Giving your car a good wash or even a detail, can make  it easier to spot any potential problems that have arisen over the summer months.
