Spring Car Care Tips

 

  • Spring is the time to get your alignment checked due to winter potholes.
  • Wash and wax your car to prevent the salt build up of winter from damaging your vehicle’s paint.
  • Check your vehicles’s air conditioning system before the heat of summer arrives.
  • Make sure to have your cooling system inspected for leaks to avoid overheating.
  • Be sure to change your oil and filter at proper intervals, and consider a fuel additive to clean your fuel system.
  • Inspect wiper blades for damage and replace every 6 months. 
  • Good traction is a must on wet roads.  Be sure to have your tire depths and pressures checked.
  • Have your brakes inspected along with the antilock system – it is especially important during these rainy months.
  • Have an Emergency kit in your vehicle; be sure it contains jumper cables, flash light, and flares
