October is National Car Care Month: What Every Car Owner Should Know

October is National Car Care Month

October is dedicated to National Car Care Month. It is recommended that motorists take a proactive approach to ensuring their cars are in optimal condition before the onset of winter. The colder temperatures in winter can be quite punishing on vehicles, which is why it is imperative to conduct preventive maintenance for fewer repairs and greater reliability.

Preventive Vehicle Maintenance

Keep your car in tip-top condition with the following easy-to-implement tips:

Check the battery as well as the charging system – Avoid having a dead car battery in winter by having the battery including the charging system inspected. Replace weak batteries and examine cables and terminals to ensure they are well-connected and corrosion-free.

Inspect condition of tires and change type if necessary – All-season tires are adequate for moderate winter conditions but for extreme snow conditions, snow tires offer the best effective winter traction. Check for uneven tire wear which may require the suspension to be checked or wheels aligned and balanced. When it comes to tire pressure make sure you include the spare as well.

Check air filter – Air filters perform a vital function in keeping the engine in excellent running condition. Filters can easily be checked if they need to be replaced by holding it up to a light bulb to see how much light is passed through the filter.

Replace worn wiper blades – Wiper blades should not only be thought of when you need them to work for you. Wiper blades are crucial in keeping visibility clear in adverse weather conditions.
