Auto maintenance can be a hobby or a necessity, so Ace Hardware carries a convenient selection of car products and truck products to help you along with either approach. While vehicle repairs are often unplanned, a good rule of thumb is to schedule out your routine maintenance by season to help avoid preventable emergencies.
Check your fluids, tires and batteries in late fall and consider waxing your vehicle to protect it from winter elements. When the temperature begins to thaw, give your vehicle a thorough cleaning inside and out to remove winter remnants. And before summer sets in, check to make sure the air conditioning and cooling systems are working properly.
For maintenance guidelines and checklists tailored to your specific make and model, refer to your auto manual. Then, head to your local Ace for the auto accessories – like fluids and car battery chargers, and tools you need to keep your vehicle running properly all year long. We stock body repair products and cleaning essentials for exterior maintenance as well. So, whether you're considered a "do-it-yourself" mechanic or simply a capable vehicle owner, Ace Hardware has your automotive needs covered.
