Spring maintenance can be quick and easy for your vehicle. By following these, your vehicle will be ready for the summer ahead.

Cleaning the car

After winter’s onslaught of salt, slush, ice and snow, make sure you give your car a clean sweep, especially on the underside. If necessary, applying rust-proof can also add an effective salt-busting shield. Washing and waxing your vehicle will help remove the salt build up from the winter.

Check the fluids

Also after winter, you should bring it in to have fluid checks. Make sure your coolant, brake fluid, oil and transmission fluid are all at optimal capacity. If there is a leak in the system, you will want to have it repaired as soon as possible.

Inspect the wiper blades

Not only are your wiper blades marred from the winter, but you will also need new wiper blades for springtime showers. If you notice damage or wear and tear to the windshield wipers, make sure to bring the vehicle in as soon as possible. While checking the windshield wipers, you can also check the battery. Get a battery load test to ensure it not only survived the winter, but is also ready for spring. It may be recommended to purchase a new battery for your vehicle.

A clogged air filter will severely impact engine performance. Changing your air filter is simple and inexpensive. If you are not sure if the filter needs to be changed, contact us. We can inspect it and have it changed if needed. Spring maintenance is important for your vehicle, so do not ignore it.
