What Kind of Maintenance is Needed in the Fall?

Oil Changes

The fall is one of the best times of the year to get your oil changed. After the hotter summer months and all the traveling and adventures that summer brings, your motor oil has likely gotten dirty. Motor oil collects the dirt and debris in the air and on the road and filters it out to keep your engine clean and performing at the highest level. Eventually, the oil filter gets too dirty, and it can't filter the dirty oil properly, which can cause engine wear and damage, while also not providing enough lubrication or cooling for the many moving parts in your engine. Colder temperatures also cause your motor oil to get thicker, which is why it's a good idea to change your oil in the fall.

Refill Other Fluids

Just like your motor oil, it's important to ensure that your other fluids are clean and properly filled. We can quickly refill any necessary fluids when you visit us from Leavenworth for fall servicing.

Check Your Lights

The days are getting shorter, which means you'll be spending more time driving in the dark. That's why it's important to check all your lights to ensure that they're working properly and are in good condition. If a light is out or it looks damaged, we can change it for you, including headlights, taillights, turn signals, and more.

Check or Change Your Tires

When you visit for a service appointment, we'll inspect your tires for you, checking the tread and making sure they're properly inflated. If the tread is low, we can rotate your tires, helping to prolong the lifespan of your tires by promoting equal tire wear and increasing your stopping, acceleration, steering, and fuel economy. We can also help you purchase new tires or put on your winter tires for you in the fall.

Change Your Windshield Wipers

The weather around Kansas City is unpredictable during the fall and in the winter. That's why we can replace your windshield wipers, ensuring that you can enjoy the best visibility and safety. If your wipers are leaving streaks or are missing parts of your windshield, it's important to change them out for new wipers.

Inspect Your Brakes

We'll inspect your vehicles brakes to ensure that every part and component of your braking system is performing correctly. If any part of the brake system needs attention, we'll address it, including quick brake pad replacements so you can stop with complete confidence regardless of the weather outside.
