Soon it will be time to take out your winter wardrobe from its hiding place because the chilly weather is arriving soon. It’s also a great time to prepare your vehicle for winter. Summer is gone and fall is here and you shouldn’t wait until the cold and snow get here to have your car ready.  Prepping your car for colder weather may sound expensive to you because it usually involves a mechanic. There are some preparations you can do at home for cheap. Amsoil4liny has prepared the list of things you can do for your car in North Babylon before winter comes.

Check Your Tires

It’s especially important to check your tire pressure during the colder months because the proper inflation allows your tire to have a better grip on the road. As the weather changes, so does the tire pressure; it tends to drop along with the temperature. The best you can do is check them if not weekly, than at least once a month. Your car comes with a spare tire, although you don’t use it a lot of the time. It is really necessary that it be in top shape as well. Once in a while, check its air pressure, too. Just a remainder: it can be found underneath your car or in the trunk.

New Windshield Wipers

You shouldn’t wait until you’re stuck in the middle of rain or snow before you realize your windshield wipers can't do their job. Wipers are really easy to replace at home and you don’t actually need many tools. Check your owner’s manual for size specifications since one is usually bigger than the other. When you purchase them, make sure they are right for your car. If your vehicle has a wiper in the rear window, replace it as well.

Change Your Oil

Fall is a great time to get an AMSOIL synthetic oil change.  It’s also very likely that you are due to get an oil change. Oil is what keeps your engine working, stopping its parts from rubbing against each other. Getting a synthetic oil change will be greatly beneficial for your car, and eventually for your wallet. The synthetic oil change intervals are farther apart, and it does a much better job at lubricating and preventing friction against engine parts. Once you change your oil, you must remember to change the oil filter as well. If you leave the old oil filter, all the pieces of trash, dirt, and tiny metal parts will get into your new oil. There is no use in having clean synthetic oil if it’s soon going to get contaminated by a dirty filter. It's best to replace both together. If you are interested in knowing more about the benefits a synthetic oil change can bring to your vehicle or in acquiring any AMSOIL automotive product in North Babylon, you can call Amsoil4liny. They can help you out by suggesting which product is right for you. You can get in touch with them by calling (888) 826-7645.

Top Off the Fluids

Once you’ve changed your windshield wipers, be sure to have your windshield fluid and antifreeze topped off. With the seasons, the windshield wiper fluid changes, so you should replace it accordingly. You would be spending less than 10 dollars, it all depends on what brand you get and which are the added components the product has. Antifreeze helps regulate your car’s temperature. You can check your antifreeze levels in the coolant reservoir. Ideally, it should reach the marking on the side of the container. The owner’s manual should tell you what type of antifreeze you should get for your car. Brakes are extremely important. If you are not ready to take your car to the mechanic, at least check that there is enough brake fluid. If it’s extremely low, chances are that there is a leak somewhere and that definitely means you have to get it checked.

Watch the Lights

Verify that all the lights in your car are fully functioning and change any of the lightbulbs that need replacing. If you can, take the bulb to the store with you so you don't buy the wrong one. Clean the lenses once in a while with a dry rag to prevent scratches.
