Fall Maintenance Tips

Fall Maintenance Tips

Properly maintaining your Ford Edge will significantly extend its lifespan and allow you to get the most for your money. Preventative maintenance is key to keeping more money in your wallet from season to season. While fall is still a few months off, it never hurts to be prepared! Here are some fall maintenance tips for your Ford Edge from us here at Sanderson Ford.

Tire Pressure

Make sure your tires are properly inflated as the weather cools. A car tire inflated to 35 pounds per square inch (psi) can lose one psi every month or for every 10 degrees. The fall tends to make things a little cooler and it never hurts to check your tire pressure as the weather begins to turn!

Tune Up

Getting a tune up for your Ford Edge will only benefit you in the long run. In addition to extending the life of your vehicle, you’ll also enjoy an increase of around 4% when it comes to fuel economy. That’s a good chunk of change saved at the pump over the course of the season!

Brakes

Many Americans choose to travel during summer and that can do a number on your brakes. Make sure to have your braking system inspected as fall rolls around. Replace worn pads and damaged rotors if necessary. Your Ford Edge will thank you later!

Need to Check Your Tire Pressure? You Have Three Options.

While some drivers are quite hands-on when it comes to vehicle maintenance, others prefer to leave those tasks to professionals. Both options are more than okay! And sometimes, advanced technology even makes traditional service obsolete.

You can check your tire pressure with a tire pressure gaugeFor example, there are essentially three different ways to check your tire pressure:

  • Your car may be able to tell you on its own. Many modern vehicles come with a Tire Pressure Monitoring System, which will tell you the tire pressure of each of your tires with great accuracy. If your car comes with this feature, then the job is already done.
  • You can check the tire pressure on your own. It’s easy to buy a simple tire gauge and check tire pressure from home. You can also visit tire pressure machines at many gas stations, which allow you to both check your pressure and increase it, for a low price.
  • You can hire a professional. Lastly, if you simply don’t want to do it on your own, you don’t have to! Our technicians at Sanderson Ford can check your tire pressure, inflate your tires, and much, much more.
