Battery

Something to keep in mind throughout this whole post is that you will need to take the upcoming weather conditions into consideration. For instance, you may be aware that fall days start to get shorter and darker because of the earth's rotation. For that reason, it is imperative that you take a look at your battery, since you wouldn't want to be left without lights during those gloomier days. Plus, it should go without saying that the battery feeds power to a bunch of your vehicle's components, which is another important reason to keep it in top shape all of the time.

Tires

Next up, know that your tires also require some regular TLC. This is because rolling you around, putting up with the weight of the vehicle, and enduring the friction with the road stresses them out (and understandably so). However, during this time of year, the changing road and weather conditions can make driving all the more difficult. For example, as the asphalt starts getting cooler, it can affect your tires. Not to mention, 'tis the season of rainfall and snowfall, which makes the road slippery. Moreover, dead leaves and debris on the road can also change the way your tires perform. Ensure they're in proper shape (even the spare one), so you can continue driving safely.

Headlights

As stated above, the fall days are shorter and darker, which means your visibility on the road can be seriously reduced. And, as stated, part in making sure you'll be able to see and be seen, is to guarantee that the battery will be able to provide the power your lights need. Nonetheless, the other part of this equation you should consider is your headlights. If the headlights are foggy, or if one of them is out, your visibility on the road will be compromised. Check them and replace them as necessary so they can light your way effectively.

And to keep your engine in perfect working condition through rain or shine, purchase AMSOIL Signature Series 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil, the most effective synthetic oil in Show Low.

Wipers

And since 'being able to see' is a recurring theme in this post, let's continue with it. Once again, you can expect rainfall and even some snow during the fall season. That's why, it is highly recommended that you take a look and even test out your windshield wipers. As you may be aware, after some time, use, and exposure to the sun, they will become damaged and useless, which means that they will need to be changed out. Get this done sooner rather than later, so you don't have to go without them once the precipitations start falling.

AC System

Being too cold is not a fun feeling. However, you can experience it if you don't provide your AC system with the necessary maintenance, so that the heating can help you stay warm once the temperatures outside lower. Not only that, but while you're getting the AC system inspected and repaired, you should also consider the 'defrost' setting in your vehicle. This is because, as you know, it allows you to see better when you drive, as it will help you clear any fogginess off your windows that are caused by the dramatic change in temperatures inside and outside of the vehicle.

Fluids

Last but not least, it is crucial that you take a look at the fluids that keep your vehicle running smoothly and effectively. For example, the synthetic oil is in charge of lubricating and protecting the engine, which is why you need to inspect it to ensure your engine will be healthy during these fall days. Likewise, the coolant that takes care of the cooling system should also be inspected and replaced if necessary, so that you won't run the risk of being stranded by the side of the road because your engine overheated or because another related mishap occurred.

Save time and money on your vehicle's maintenance with the use of AMSOIL's full line of top performing products. Browse AMSOIL's online shop or call John O Brown at (520) 444-2634 to purchase them, including the best synthetic oil in Show Low.
