Easy Fall Car Maintenance Checklist
The extreme temperatures in Minnesota can have a big effect on your vehicle. Now is the time to beat the winter rush and get your vehicle into TGK Automotive to get your fall maintenance done.
TGK Automotive employs excellent, ASE certified technicians in both our Maplewood and Hugo locations. We would love to see you at either of our locations to ensure servicing your vehicle is affordable and easy for you. We want you to have peace of mind while driving during the upcoming winter months.
Here are a few things to look over on your vehicle to get ready for fall:
Top Off Fluids – It is important to check over your vehicle’s fluids including washer fluid, engine oil, power steering fluid, antifreeze/coolant, brake fluid, and transmission fluid. This is an easy and very inexpensive way to increase your vehicle’s performance.
Battery Check – Car batteries typically last about 5 years and with the extreme temperatures in Minnesota it can be even less. Bring your vehicle in today and have your battery tested.
Tires Tread Depth – Tires are a very important part of your safety, as they are the only contact that your vehicle has to the road. Make sure to check your tire tread and tire pressure. If your tires are wearing unevenly, you might need a wheel alignment.
Check Heater/Defroster – Having a properly running heating and defrost system will not only keep you comfy in the cold months but give you the visibility you need when driving.
Replace Lights – Make sure to replace all burnt out light bulbs. If your headlights are getting foggy and making it hard for you to see at night, make an appointment today and we will make them look like new.
Replace Wiper Blades – To ensure good visibility while driving in rain or snow, make sure to replace your windshield wipers at least twice year.
