Seasons come and seasons go. As we transition into autumn here in Southeastern Massachusetts, it is important to prepare your vehicle for the wet, windy weather that is fall in New England. LaCava Auto Parts features all of the car parts and accessories that you need to get your vehicle in tip-top shape.
Take time to go through this checklist to see how your car or truck measures up. Visit our Fall River auto parts and services center to get all of the tools, parts, fluids and services required to get the job done. Our team can help you find the right parts for your vehicle at our Fall River, Massachusetts location.
Brake Check – Start your seasonal servicing with parts and tools from LaCava Auto Supply & Services in Fall River, MA by taking a peek at your car’s brakes. If you know you are having trouble with your brakes in the summer, make sure to get them repaired before fall and winter hits the local area. LaCava Auto Parts has a wide range of brake pads and other parts that you can use to get everything working as it should. We also offer services, such as rotor turning, to help you safely get the most out of your existing parts.
Tire Test – The next thing you need to check is your tires. Stop by LaCava Brothers to get a good pressure gauge that you can use to ensure that your tires are properly inflated. In addition to making sure there is enough pressure in your tires, make sure to also have your tires checked for damage, bubbles, nails and other signs of wear and tear that might lead to a blow out. If there is noticeable wear, consider replacing the tire before you have a problem.
All the Lights – As the days begin to get shorter, you will likely be making your morning commute in the dark. You will also be coming home from work in the dark. Now is the time to check and make sure that your lights are working. Our Fall River auto parts and services store has everything you need to fix any broken bulbs or lights that have stopped working. Check your headlights, taillights, brake lights, emergency flashing lights, and parking lights. Look for cleaners in our car parts and accessories sections to keep your lights shining at their very best. Consider upgrading to halogen lights to improve visibility. We have it all at LaCava Auto Parts.
New Wiper Blades – While it’s smart to check your wiper blades frequently, it’s also smart to replace them each year. Blades that are worn out or cracked won’t be able to keep your windshield clean and clear. Check the rubber on the blade to make sure it’s working as it should. If you have any doubt, throw it out and get a new one at our auto supply services in Fall River, MA. We also have FREE installation services for any customers who purchase a set of new windshield wipers at our local store.
Battery Testing – Another great free service offered at LaCava Auto Parts is our FREE battery testing. Check your battery to make sure it is in good condition and that it will start in the cold weather. Our team of trained technicians can check the battery charge and inspect your battery to make sure it can stand up to the fall and winter seasons here in Southeastern Massachusetts. Clean any corrosion or debris that is on the battery terminals and cables. Tighten any connections that are loose to ensure proper function.
Oil and Filter Change – Depending on your vehicle and the type of oil you use, you will have to change the oil in your vehicle every three to ten thousand miles. However, with excessive wear and tear, or if the oil is dirty, you should change the oil even if it is before the recommended mileage point. When you do an oil change, make sure to also check the filter. If you aren’t sure what type of oil or filter you need for your vehicle, stop by our Fall River auto parts and services store and speak with one of our friendly team members.
Heater and Defroster – Another very important tool that you will need in the fall and winter is the heater and defroster system. If the heater isn’t working you won’t just have a cold and freezing trip to and from work, but you will also have windows that are fogged up and unsafe. Make sure to inspect both the front and rear defrosters to ensure that they are working properly. Check with our team for car parts and accessories to help you with any repairs.
