Spring Car Maintenance Tips
As Spring approaches there is a lot to look forward to driving your car. With the roads cleared of salt and snow, and the days getting longer, spring is a great time to drive around. However, winter can add a lot of strain to your car, and it may need repairs or at least a checkup. Make sure to follow these spring car maintenance tips to keep your car healthy and ready for the summer months.
Early spring is the best time to bring your car in to see a licensed technician. The winter months can do the most damage to your engine and seeing a professional is the best way to ensure your car is ready for the next twenty thousand miles. Every car owner should consider getting an oil change, rotating their tires, and having an inspection with a mechanic licensed for their car model this spring. Spring is also a good time to check your fluid levels, air conditioning, and air filters.
Tire pressure should always be checked at the beginning of spring. Cold weather can change your tire pressure so every driver should make sure that your tires are properly filled this spring. You should also do a visual inspection of your tires and rims to check for any debris that could puncture your tires, snow often pulls debris into the roads in later winter. Another good habit is to have your suspension checked professionally at a good repair shop before driving this spring.
When it comes to your car’s body, there are a few things you should do after every winter. Make sure to have your car washed and waxed. Washing your car, especially your wheel wells, is necessary to remove the dirt, salt, and silt from driving in the winter. Having your car waxed will protect your car from the sun this spring and summer. Consider replacing your windshield wipers if they were damaged during the winter and apply an anti-rain product to your windows to keep your windshield clean during the rainier months coming up.
