Spring Maintenance Tips

Spring Maintenance Tips

Now that the winter is almost over, you might be thinking about a spring road trip. Whether you’re looking to take a long drive or are just focusing on your daily commute, your car could benefit from some spring maintenance tips. Here’s how to get your vehicle set for the season.

Change oil

Your car needs an oil change regularly, and the change of seasons can be a good way to keep up with that schedule.  Fresh oil and oil filters help the engine to run effectively and smoothly. Check the owner’s manual for the recommended maintenance schedule to ensure you’re having the oil changed frequently enough.

Check fluids

It’s easy to check the fluids in your car using your owner’s manual as a guide. This spring, take a look at the coolant, the power steering, the transmission fluid, and the brake fluid and top off as needed. If anything is especially low, you may want to have your car checked for leaks by a professional.

Replace wiper blades

Replacing the wiper blades is an easy and inexpensive way to enhance visibility and improve the safety of your vehicle. Be prepared for spring showers by getting fresh wiper blades every March.
