With fall quickly approaching, it is important to have your vehicle ready for the chilly temperatures ahead. Although it does not snow or get too terribly cold here in South Louisiana, you still need to have your car service and ready for the fall weather that will soon be upon us! All Star Kia of Baton Rouge has compiled a few tips and recommendations in order to get your vehicle in tip-top shape before the season changes!
- Check you Battery
If your battery has removable caps, make sure that all cells are filled with distilled water. Keep all battery terminals and cable ends clean. When jump-starting, never connect the jumper cables’ ground clamp to the dead battery’s negative post. Instead, use an engine-mounted bracket as the grounding location. In colder weather, this can keep a frozen battery from exploding.
Waxing, particularly with a carnauba-based product, will help the paint withstand road salt and other foul-weather grime. Lubricate door hinges with silicone spray so they won’t squeak when the weather changes. Spraying the locks and weatherstripping will help keep doors and trunks from freezing shut!
Air condenses in cooler weather, and we’re all well-educated now on the hazards of under inflated tires. Keep tires inflated to the manufacturer’s recommendation on the sticker found in the glove box or on the doorjamb. Check the condition/inflation of your spare tire for safety!
These are just a few things All Star Kia of Baton Rouge suggests you check before the fall season rolls around!
