Fall Maintenance for Your Truck

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.

Rotate tires

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.

Change oil

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.

Restore headlights

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.

Wash car

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.

Staying up to date on fall maintenance will keep your truck ready for whatever lies on the road ahead. To get there, stop into Dave Kehl Chevrolet in Mechanicsburg, Ohio, and we’ll take care of your service needs.

Don’t Be a Fool: Stay on Top of Spring Car Maintenance

Spring vehicle maintenance isn’t that important, right? That’s what April fools think. Keeping your vehicle up to date with routine seasonal service will keep it working for you for much longer, and that’s no joke. These spring car maintenance steps will help you avoid serious transportation troubles this season.

Catch up on your service schedule

Is there anything you haven’t been keeping up with on your vehicle? Now is the time to get oil changes, filters replaced, and other fluids checked or refilled. Things like transmission fluid, brake fluid, and even wiper fluid are important.

Replace your wipers

Remember, April showers bring May flowers. Instead of letting your visibility get bogged down under all that rain, replace your vehicle’s old windshield wipers so you can see clearly — before the rain is gone.

Look at your tires

Tires are one of the most important components of your feelings, and they need some TLC. Even if you bought a new set recently, now is the time to get them rotated. Check tire pressure and make sure everything’s up to par. If tire tread is worn, it might be time to stop by Dave Kehl Chevrolet for some new tires

Get an engine check-up

Even if everything else looks good from a DIY perspective, spring is a great time to get your car to somebody who knows what they’re doing, like a dealership service technician. Have them give your vehicle’s mechanical parts a once-over to make sure it’s all in working order.
