It's that time of yearrrrr

Take a screwdriver or nut driver and check all your hose clamps for tightness. Look for seepage or wetness around the hose connections. Check your cooler lines from transmission and engine for tight connections and the crimped hoses.
Consider a coolant flush and refill.
Clean and tighten battery connections and smear them with generous gobs of grease.
Check belts for tightness, dry checking and glazing.
Change the oil now while it's still mild weather.
Clean bulb holders and bulb bases. Spray silicone in the sockets. Clean inside lenses.
Change wiper blades. Tighten arm nuts.
Rotate tires and check pressure. Spare too.
Get underneath and grease zerks. Check engine ground strap and starter connection nut. Check exhaust for looseness and signs of failure.

Right you are, we lost a oil cooler line that was clamped on Saturday just about 50 yards away, could have been much worse, but the recovery was quick.

Every year. Sometimes even in my own truck.
