for the driver-side wiper. So, be sure to consult the in-store sizing guide to buy the right ones. And don’t forget to buy a third blade if you own a hatchback, station wagon or SUV, with a wiper for the rear window.

5 Easy DIY Car Maintenance Moves For Fall With autumn’s shorter days, cooler temperatures and inclement weather drawing closer, now is a good time to get your car ready for the demands of the coming driving season Although some seasonal car maintenance will require the assistance of a qualified car mechanic, here are five, simple do-ityourself car maintenance projects to make your auto better prepared for fall and save you the labor cost of having these services done by a mechanic. Change your wiper blades - Wiper blades should be replaced annually every fall, you generally use your wipers more frequently in the fall and winter. They’ll also be taking a lot more abuse from road grime and windshield-washer solvent, so it’s best to have a fresh set then. Be aware that some cars will require same-sized blades for the driver and passenger sides, while others will require a longer blade

Check your spare tire - Autumn is also a good time to check your spare tire to ensure that it is properly inflated. The typical space-saver spare tire found in most cars must be inflated to the inflation pressure listed on the side of the tire. Check and top off fluids - In fall, windshield-washer fluid needs to be replaced with a solvent that is suited for use in cold weather. Autumn is also a good time to check your level of antifreeze in the coolant recovery reservoir. In this car maintenance move, if you find that you are below the required minimum stamped onto the side of that opaque container, add the appropriate quantity of properly diluted fluid to that reservoir and not to the radiator. Make sure that you use the correct fluid because green and orange antifreeze/coolant cannot be mixed. Replace the air filter - At a minimum, engine air filters should be replaced twice

per year as part of car maintenance. So, if you haven’t done so already, replacing your car’s air filter is a good idea. When an air filter reaches the point where it causes enough of a pressure drop to restrict airflow, the car’s fuel economy, performance and emissions begin to deteriorate, getting progressively worse until the dirty filter is replaced. Check battery terminals and lights - Many electrical issues and ignition problems stem from loose or corroded battery connections. If you notice corrosion on the posts or cable connectors, use an appropriate brush. This is a very inexpensive, yet handy tool that you can get at any auto parts store. And clean both (posts) completely, and then reconnect everything snuggly and securely.” As part of regular car maintenance, and for safety, make sure all of the car’s lights are working; it’s important for you to see, as well as be seen, during autumn’s longer and darker nights. You can replace them all quite easily on your own without tools and save yourself a hefty labor charge in the process. For more car care tips visit www. Bankrate.com.
