March is here and spring has sprung, which means for a lot of people, it’s time to check some things off your list of spring cleaning and maintenance. Here are some spring car prep tips to get you started on taking care of your vehicle.
Wash Your Car
Winter leaves all kind of dirt and grime on cars that you wouldn’t even realize – for example, salt stuck up in the undercarriage, or dirt left behind by snow. Give your car a thorough spring cleaning to make it shine again.
Don’t Overlook Your Wipers
Spring means rain, which means you should probably swap out your wiper blades and refill the wiper fluid reservoir.
Inspect Your Tires
Check tread depth on your tires and also make a point to fill them up to the recommended tire pressure; cold temperatures cause tires to deflate faster.
Have Your Battery Tested
Tires aren’t the only thing cold temperatures mess with. Battery capacity also suffers through the winter, so you should have a shop run a diagnostics test on the strength of your car battery to see if you should get it replaced.
Get Your Oil Changed
Oil is the lifeblood of your vehicle’s engine. If you changed it in the fall, it’s about time to have another oil change after the winter months.
