Easy Car Maintenance Tips for Fall

As summer begins to end, Nexcar Auto Sales & Leasing wants you to be prepared for the cold weather that is on its way. As we head towards the fall season, it's important to note the impact this weather can have on your vehicle. For example, it can become difficult for your tires to create traction and your windshield is at a higher risk for cracks. If you are looking for some easy fall car maintenance tips you can follow this guide put together by our Car Dealership in Toronto.

Watch the Fluid Levels

In order to make sure your vehicle runs smoothly all fall, it's important to check on the different fluid levels. Such as the windshield wash fluids, coolant, brake fluids, transmissions fluids, and power steering fluids.

Check the Tires

Next on the list comes checking your tires. You can start by checking their overall condition (including tread and inflation), and then rotating the tires so that they wear evenly. Cold weather can also cause tires to lose air quickly, this means it’s important to monitor the tire pressure as well.

Prepare For Cold Weather

During the colder seasons, your vehicle should always have an emergency kit ready incase you find yourself on the side of the road having car troubles. The kit should include a flashlight, jumper cables, blanket, first aid kit, ice scraper, and gloves.

Oil Change

Is it time to book an oil change? Cars oil should be changed at approximately every 10,000 kilometers (check with your car's manufacturer). An oil change is necessary in a vehicle because it helps to lubricate the moving parts of the engine, keeping it running smoothly, leading to a best-performing vehicle.

Does The Heat Work?

Before the cold weather hits hard, it’s important to check your heating. Make sure that each vent works as well as the defrosters work to ensure safe driving. If you find these components don’t work, it’s important to take your vehicle in for repair as soon as possible.

Check the Brakes

Use this time to get your brakes checked so that when the snow and ice begin, your vehicle is ready to tackle harsh conditions. Keep in mind that if you hear unusual noises when driving, it could potentially be your brake pads and these should be checked on.

Install All-Weather Floor Mats

All-weather floor mats are perfect to help keep your vehicle clean from water, snow, dirt, and grime in colder months. They are worth the investment and can be kept on all year long.
