Getting ready to celebrate the cool fall weather calls for some routine car maintenance. Keeping your car running at peak efficiency is crucial for those who plan to travel now that summer is finally waning. Here are a few helpful fall services tips from us here at Aransas Autoplex.
Properly functioning headlights are a necessity all year round, especially if you plan on attending some high school football games this fall. Walk around your vehicle with an eye on each light. Replace any dead bulbs and clean the lenses as best you can.
Like headlights, windshield wipers are a necessity for every season. Fall showers can get pretty heavy, especially if you’re driving at night. Windshield wipers need to be replaced every six months. Fortunately, they’re a routine maintenance item, so they’re fairly easy to replace and don’t cost much at all.
Your car likely has a few filters that need to be changed in preparation for cooler weather. The cabin air filter is responsible for keeping the cabin air fresh and free of debris particles. The oil filter keeps debris out of the engine. The engine air filter keeps debris out of the engine as well. Replacing these filters tends to vary based on make and model.
