After months of sweltering heat, summer is about to bid farewell in Australia. With the autumn just around the corner, it’s time to prepare your car for the new weather conditions.
Autumn is often marked by significant temperature fluctuations, torrential rainfall and less daylight. These conditions can be a challenge for you and your car. And therefore, it is important to deck up your vehicle to function efficiently during this transition season.
We have prepared a quick checklist to ensure your car runs without glitches during autumn:
Keep the Lights in Proper Condition
Fog, frequent rainfall and shorter days are some of the main reasons to get the entire lighting system of your car checked thoroughly. The checking process should include:
- Turn signals
- Brake lights
- Fog lights
- Headlights and taillights
Remember, during hazy days it is particularly important to see and be seen to ensure a safe drive. If you notice any faulty lighting in your vehicle, take it to the nearest service centre immediately.
Protect the Car Against Frost
Melbourne often experiences frost during autumn, and so it is crucial to ensure adequate protection against frost.
Make sure the radiator system is to protect the engine against frost and subsequent damages. Moreover, it is essential you get the cooling liquid checked. In case of any glitches, take your car to the professionals for regular radiator system cleaning.
Get your Windshield Wipers Checked.
Australian autumn often witnesses frequent rainfall, which means more work for the wipers. The wiper blades get heavily loaded by everyday use. Therefore it should be checked before autumn.
If the wiper blades are brittle and cracked, immediate replacement is recommended.
While there are hardly any temperature variations during summer and winter, the situation is different during the autumn. During this transition season, the temperature between day and night varies greatly. Such temperature fluctuations often result in the formation of harmful condensation in the tank. It is essential to get your fuel system checked by a professional to remove the condensed liquids for smooth functioning of the engine.
