A new season is nearly upon us which means it’s time to read up on some fall car maintenance tips. As always, properly maintaining your vehicle has plenty of benefits, ranging from performance and efficiency to ride comfort. Check out these tips from us here at JBA Mitsubishi.
Check the Lights
Properly functioning headlights and taillights are a necessity to driving safely at dusk, night, and during storms. Walk around the exterior of your car with an eye on the lights. Make sure all lights, including the brake lights, parking lights, and emergency flashers are all functioning properly. Take the time to check the seals on each light. If any bulbs are burnt out, replace them as soon as possible.
Check the Battery
Your car isn’t going to be operational without a battery. Remove your battery and clean any rust and debris off of the connections. Look over the battery for any abnormalities, such as bumps and bulges. Replace it if necessary.
Get an Oil Change
Oil is essentially the life blood of the engine. The summer heat will cause oil to thin, especially if you drove a lot. A simple and cost-effective oil change will offer benefits like improved performance and efficiency as well as protect the engine.
