Preventative Maintenance Can Save Your Money and Time
The Importance of Preventative Maintenance
Preventative maintenance is an important part of vehicle ownership. There are components and systems on your vehicle that need attention a few times a year. This is especially true as your vehicle gets older. Following the change of seasons to have preventative maintenance performed is a good way to be sure you are not neglecting your vehicle. With fall right around the corner, it is a good time to schedule maintenance for your car, truck, SUV, van or crossover. Here are 5 preventative maintenance needs before winter arrives.
1. Check your tires
Make sure your tires have good tread and there are no bubbles or dry rot on the sidewalls. You also want to check for any foreign objects lodged in the tread that might cause an issue later. Uneven wear is also a sign of an alignment issue that your mechanic needs to take care of.
2. How are your brakes?
If it is taking more effort to stop your vehicle there is a good chance your brakes are starting to wear out. If they are squeaking, you definitely need to get into your mechanic as soon as possible and get your brakes pads and rotors inspected.
3. Check your air filters
Check all your air filters both under the hood and in the cabin. Dirty summer air can clog your under the hood air filter up and reduce engine performance and gas mileage. Your in cabin air filter can become dirty from constant use of air conditioning and have a hard time filtering the fresh air when you are ready to let it in.
4. Change your oil
If you have not recently had an oil change, get one done. Not only does this help fight engine sludge, it also gives you an opportunity for an inspection of components under your vehicle. They will check all your fluids and systems and alert you if there are any issues you need to address.
5. Change your wiper blades
Being able to see in the rain and clean dirt and muck from your windshield is important for driver safety. Change your wiper blades, check your windshield washer fluid, and top it off as needed. Next to your brakes, a clean windshield is one of the biggest safety features your vehicle has.
