Getting your car ready for spring is hugely beneficial. It increases the car’s longevity and brings down the likelihood of an accident or breakdown during the hot summer months. Help your car recover from winter and transition into summer with these easy tips.
First, check your fluids and top off any that are low. If it’s been more than a couple of months since your last oil change, now is a great time to get one again, and you should also have the coolant checked to see if you might need a coolant flush. Having clean fluids is one of the best ways to keep your car healthy during spring and summer.
Now is a great time to check your tires and brakes, too. If your tires are worn or have any damage, you may want to have them replaced, and you should check the tire pressure and add air if it’s low. Get the tires rotated, balanced, and aligned. Have your brakes inspected by a professional for rust, worn pads, leaks in the lines, and more.
Finally, you should switch out your windshield wipers for new ones, especially if they’re squealing or leaving streaks, and give your car a thorough wash. Pay special attention to the undercarriage to get off any built-up grime.
