Seasonal Car Maintenance is Key

It is essential to keep up on your vehicle's maintenance, but every season comes with its own set of requirements, and you will need to adjust your maintenance accordingly. Spring maintenance will be much different than what you need to do to prepare your car for winter simply because spring temperatures are much less harsh than what you can expect from winter weather. Also, regular maintenance is key to getting the most gas mileage and will keep your car running.

Five Spring Vehicle Maintenance Tips

Change To All-Season Tires or Summer Tires

Since winter temperatures greatly vary from what you can expect from spring weather, the air in your car's tires can fluctuate, so you want to check your tire pressure. It's also the right time to return to summer tires if you have dedicated winter tires.

Check Your Braking System

Spring is a great time to get a complete brake system check as well. One of our specialists will inspect the brake pads, callipers, drums, and other brake system components for any wear and replace what's needed. If your car pulls to the side, vibrates, or makes any grinding or squealing sounds, your brake system likely needs to be serviced.

Get The Winter Salt Off Your Vehicle

Get your car deep-cleaned from the inside out to freshen it up and remove any salt deposits from the roads. Salt is a natural enemy of cars since it will cause them to rust, so it's important to limit how long it stays on the exterior of your vehicle. Be sure to have the undercarriage thoroughly cleaned and apply a wax coating for an extra layer of protection.

Air Conditioning Maintenance

Before it gets uncomfortably hot, you want to make sure that your air conditioner is working correctly. You should get it checked out even if it isn't acting up to ensure that it is clean and doesn't have any leaks in the system.

Check Your Fluids & Battery

Winter is tough on your car's battery, bringing it into our service department to get it checked. It's also an excellent time to get an oil change, especially if you haven't gotten one since before winter. Be sure to get your fluids topped up and belts and hoses checked for any leaks, bulges, or cracks.
