October is Fall Car Care Month!


Fall is the perfect time to get your car ready for the winter months ahead. October is fall car care month, so it's the perfect time to check your car's fluids, battery, and tires. Make sure your car is in good working order before the snow and ice hit. Winter can be tough on your car, so it's important to be prepared. Below are a few maintenance items to check out.

Fluids

As the weather gets colder, it's important to make sure your car is ready for winter. One of the most important things to check is your fluids. Make sure you have enough windshield wiper fluid and oil. Another thing to check is your antifreeze levels. You don't want your engine to freeze up, so make sure you have enough antifreeze in your radiator.

Battery

Your car battery is one of the most important components of your vehicle, and it is important to check it regularly to ensure that it is in good working order. This is especially true in the winter when the cold weather can cause automotive batteries to fail.
There are a few things you can do to prepare your car battery for the winter. First, make sure that the battery is properly charged and it's strong enough to start your car in cold weather. Second, clean the battery terminals and connections to prevent corrosion. Finally, if your battery is more than three years old, consider replacing it with a new one.
Taking these steps to prepare your car battery for the winter will help ensure that your vehicle is ready to handle the cold weather and that you can get where you need to go without any problems.

Tires

As the weather gets colder and the roads start to ice over, it's important to make sure your car is ready for the winter. One of the most important things to check is your tires. You should also check your tires to see if they need to be replaced or if you need to add air to them. You want to make sure they have enough tread and are properly inflated. If your tires are worn or underinflated, they can lose traction on the roads and cause you to skid. If your car isn't ready for the winter, it can be a dangerous and expensive proposition.


Finally, you should have your car serviced. This includes getting a tune-up and making sure the brakes are in good working order. By taking these steps, you can help ensure that your car will be able to handle the colder weather and that you'll be safe on the roads.
