Tire pressure gauge
TIP: Before you hit the road in spring and fall, get your vehicle ready.
1. Use a gauge to check tire pressure.
TIP: Tires can lose pressure in cold weather, gain in warm weather; look inside the driver’s door or in your owner’s manual for the correct setting for you vehicle.
2. Test tire tread by inserting an upside-down penny; If you can’t see Lincoln’s entire head, it may be time for new tires
1. Get oil changed.
TIP: Oil is graded for different weather conditions; make sure yours is right for your climate.
2. Ask a technician to test how much battery life is left.
3. Have tires rotated.
TIP: Front tires on 4-wheel- and front-wheel-drive vehicles can wear out twice as fast as rear tires.
4. Have filters checked.
TIP: Dirty filters can waste gas and cause engine to lose power.
TIP: Changing cabin filter could lessen seasonal allergies.
5. Have brakes checked; a technician can tell you how much longer pads should last.
