Top Technical Advice for Car Maintenance During the Changing Seasons

In the blink of an eye, we’re already in the thick of autumn. The leaves are changing color and starting to fall, sweaters and boots are coming out of storage, and pumpkin spice everything is taking over our grocery stores. As we enjoy the autumn season, it’s important to remember to switch up our car maintenance routine too!

Here are some top tech tips for keeping your car running smoothly this season.

  1. Pay attention to your car’s warning lights. Every car will have different lights for different issues, but it’s important to know what each one means and how you can address the issue quickly. For example, if your check engine light comes on, this could mean that there is a serious problem with your fuel system that needs to be addressed as soon as possible.
  1. Check your tire pressure regularly and keep them properly inflated. This is especially important during the fall and winter months when colder temperatures can cause air pressure in tires to drop dramatically. Low tire pressure can decrease your fuel efficiency and put you at risk of a blowout on the road if your tires are underinflated.
  1. Keep up with basic car maintenance tasks, such as changing your engine oil and performing regular tune-ups and inspections. This can help reduce the risk of costly repairs down the road and help keep your car running smoothly for longer.
  1. Consider investing in some high-tech car accessories to make driving in the fall a little easier. This might include things like heated windshield wipers, automatic headlights, or even a backup camera to help you park more easily in smaller spaces.

Fall is a great time to get your car ready for the colder months ahead. Make sure to give it a good cleaning both inside and out, and take it in for a full check-up at HEART Auto Care. We can help make sure your car is running smoothly so you can enjoy the autumn weather without any worries!
