Fords are built to last. But if you want your vehicle to run like-new for years to come, you need to take care of your Ford. Follow these car maintenance tips for fall to make sure you’re starting the season on the right foot.
Get New Wiper Blades
The autumn is sure to bring plenty of rain showers. Be prepared for safe driving in rainy weather by changing your wiper blades. It’s easy and inexpensive to do. Sure signs that you’re in need of new blades are streaks on the windshield and squeaking when the wipers are turned on.
Check Your Battery
As the weather cools down, your car battery will need to be in tip-top shape. Weak or old batteries can have a lot of trouble staying charged when the weather gets frigid. Have your battery checked no to avoid needing a jump during the winter months.
Change Your Oil and Air Filter
You should get an oil change every 5,000 to 10,000 miles, or according to your owner’s manual. Find a specific recommended schedule in your owner’s manual. Keeping your oil and your air filter clean helps ensure that your engine is running at its best, and that your fuel efficiency is at its highest.
