Now that the fall season is here, you should start preparing your vehicle to endure the changing conditions. Read this post by D&M Marketing, LLC in Covington to learn how to maintain it properly.

How to Maintain Your Vehicle This Fall

Make sure your vehicle works perfectly all year round with AMSOIL's full line of high quality products. Browse through AMSOIL's online shop or call D&M Marketing, LLC at (770) 312-7542 to place an order.


First off, be sure to take care of the battery to verify that it is in perfect working shape. As you may know, the battery supplies power to a slew of your vehicle's components, meaning that without it, you can bet you wouldn't be able to operate it. However, since the fall months bring with it different conditions (such as darker and shorter days, rainfall, and others), it is even more important that you ensure your battery works properly. If you don't, you may not be able to use your headlights or your wipers during the fall season.


And speaking of the harsher conditions during the fall season, you should also keep your tires in mind so that they can roll through them without much difficulty. For instance, as the temperatures outside start to drop, so will the temperature of the asphalt, which makes a difference in your tires and how they perform. Moreover, there are various elements that could make the roads more slippery than usual. For example, rainfall or dead leaves could prevent your tires from having a normal grip on the road. For these and many other reasons, it is crucial that you pay attention to your tires during the fall, and that you provide the maintenance or replacement required (even for the spare tire).


As you may have noticed (and as was mentioned in this post already), the fall season comes with shorter and darker days. This can make driving a bit more dangerous, since you won't be able to spot vehicles, objects, and people on the road as easily. Moreover, they won't be able to spot you as easily either. For that reason, you should ensure that your headlights are working properly. Part of this is providing the maintenance the battery needs. However, you should also take a look at the headlights themselves: are they foggy? is one of them out? If you find an issue like these or any other, address it promptly so you don't end up driving around with poor visibility.

And since the subject of visibility has been brought up, let's talk about your windshield wipers. Fall comes with its fair share of rainfall (and even some snow), which can gather on your windshield and make it difficult to see the road. That's why you have wipers that help clean all of that away. But, as it is to be assumed, your wipers can also become ineffective due to time, use, sun damage, and more. To guarantee your wipers won't affect your visibility, make it a point to inspect them and change them up if it's needed.

AC System

Next up, it's the AC system. This one is important because you wouldn't want to be left out in the cold while the fall temperatures lower. More so than that, the change in temperatures outside and inside the vehicle can result in fogginess building up in your vehicle and blocking your view of the road. The 'defrost' option in your AC system helps counteract this and keep your view clear. Nonetheless, as is to be expected, the AC system also requires constant maintenance for it to be working perfectly. Have a professional mechanic inspect it to ensure it's in good shape.


As a last tip, it's never a bad idea to check on your vehicle's fluids. As you know, your vehicle requires fluids to keep its components in top shape for longer. For example, the engine requires synthetic oil to be properly lubricated and protected. Likewise, the cooling system requires coolant in order to do its job appropriately. Have your mechanic check on the fluids, so you can venture out into the roads this fall, without fearing that your vehicle may leave you stranded.
