Fall means pumpkin patches and falling leaves, but it also means it’s time for seasonal maintenance for your truck. Prepare your truck for autumn and cooler weather with these basic maintenance tips.
Inspect car battery
Make sure the cables of your car battery are tightly connected and clean. If you notice signs of corrosion, disconnect the cables and terminals and clean them.
Maximize the mileage on your truck tires by rotating the tires and checking the tread to see if you need to replace them. Consider purchasing winter tires to increase your truck’s traction on snowy roads around Mechanicsburg this winter.
New oil prevents your engine from overheating and keeps your engine parts lubricated. Bring your truck into Dave Kehl Chevrolet for your regular oil change and seasonal maintenance. Check your owner’s manual to see when you should bring your Chevy truck in for an oil change.
During fall, it will start getting darker sooner. That means it’s important to have clear night vision. Clouded lenses can reduce the effectiveness of your headlights at night. If your headlights are becoming cloudy or hazy, restore your headlights with a headlight restoration kit.
Clean off the summer bugs and prepare for the snowy grime with a good car wash. Washing and waxing your truck can protect the paint and body while making it look fresh and new.
The beginning of autumn signals the onset of football season. Tailgating is a popular activity for fans that want to pair their favorite foods and beverages with game-day exhilaration. If you’re new to the pastime or need a refresher on how to do it the right way, here are some helpful tips to keep in mind when tailgating in your truck this fall.
Before the game
Keep the following items stored in a toolbox, either in the
backseat area or the truck bed, so you’ll be ready at a moment’s notice for the
next tailgating event:
Your favorite condiments, spices, and seasonings
Plastic zip bags
During the game
Stay safe and maximize your fun when tailgating by observing
the following rules.
Show up a few hours earlier than game time, to
claim a good spot in the parking lot.
Have each member of your tailgating party bring
enough alcohol for four people, to ensure that you have a sufficient supply
during the game.
Drink only from your tailgate, even if there are
other sports fans nearby that are rooting for your team.
Keep pickup games to a minimum, to avoid
sabotaging other tailgaters parties and grill sessions.
Clean up after yourself by bringing a few
garbage bags and using them.
