How to Maintain Your Vehicle This Fall

Take a look through AMSOIL's online shop or call Vaughan Distributing at (307) 413-1011 to purchase the best products for your vehicle's maintenance, including the best synthetic oil in Jackson.

Battery

What would your vehicle be without a functioning battery? Not much more other than a pile of metal, that's for sure. That's why, it is imperative that the battery in your vehicle is charged and working appropriately, no matter the season you're going through. Nonetheless, it is important to point out that the fall months bring with it harsher conditions (for instance, darker and shorter days, and even some precipitation). This makes it even more crucial that you keep your battery in top shape, so your headlights, wipers, and other battery-powered features won't fail you in your time of need.

Tires

What's black, round, carries you around, puts up with your weight, and endures the friction with the road? Your vehicle's tires! Needless to say, your vehicle's tires have a lot of stress, which means that after some time and use, they will start presenting signs of damage. However, as the fall season rolls around, so will the adversities that your tires will need to drive you through. For starters, the drop in the temperature will make everything cooler, meaning that your tires may perform differently because of it. Furthermore, since dead leaves and rainfall on the road are to be expected, you should be careful that your tires won't slip and cause a wreck. A way to guarantee that you'll stay safe during those intense fall days, is to check up on your tires and provide the maintenance they need (even the spare one).

Headlights

While you don't want to end up like 'a deer in the headlights', you also should avoid being a vehicle with no headlights. As stated a few times over in this post, the fall season equals shorter and darker days, meaning that your headlights become more useful and crucial to your safety than ever before. Still, while checking on the battery is essential to keep them working correctly, so is taking a look at them. For example, you should verify that the headlights aren't foggy, and that none of them are out. If you do encounter a problem, address it immediately so you can have good visibility.

To care for your engine all year round, feed it with AMSOIL Signature Series 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil, the best synthetic oil in Jackson.

Wipers

And since the subject of visibility has been brought onto the table, it is time to talk about the dangers of not having wipers in good working condition. Rainfall and even some snow, aren't uncommon occurrences during the fall season. They, as you may know, make driving significantly more difficult. This is because, aside from making the roads slippery, precipitation can affect your ability to see the road ahead. Of course, windshield wipers can help you tremendously in this respect. Nonetheless, you should test them and replace them if needed, so that they can work properly.

AC System

Cruising around in your vehicle during the fall season may mean that you'll feel cold because of the lower temperatures outside. Luckily, many vehicles come equipped with an AC system nowadays that can heat up the vehicle and keep you warm during the cold. That's why, it is imperative that you have your AC system checked out. Not only that, but the 'defrost' setting should also be inspected and maintained. This, so the change in temperatures outside and inside of the vehicle won't cause fogginess that will prevent you from seeing the road ahead effectively.

Fluids

Last but not least, you should remember to give your vehicle's fluids a good inspection and replacement if necessary. As you know, certain components (the engine, the cooling system, etc.) in your vehicle require fluids (synthetic oil, coolant) in order to run smoothly for a long time. Still, as many things do, those fluids can become ineffective after some time and use, which is why you should keep an eye on them and change them up as you see fit.
