Important Springtime Auto Maintenance Tasks

Important Springtime Auto Maintenance Tasks


With spring's arrival and temperatures finally creeping upward, it'll soon be time for adventures on the open road. Before hopping on the interstate, it's important that your vehicle is fully prepared to deliver you safely and reliably to your destination. Here are six types of auto maintenance for spring.

Test Battery

Harsh winter weather can be brutal on an automotive battery. To make sure your battery isn't liable to leave you stranded, it's a good idea to get it tested.

Check Tire Pressure/Tread

Major shifts in air temperatures can cause fluctuations in tire pressure. Typically, pressure should be at 30-35 psi. When checking your tire pressure, it's also a good time to take a peek at your tread to make sure your tires are able to safely grip the road.

AC Service

Before the heat starts really cooking, it's best to make sure your AC system is fully ready to keep you comfortably cool. When you get AC service, the mechanic will ensure that all aspects of your AC system are working properly.

Replace Wiper Blades

Following months of winter weather, your wiper blades may no longer be working especially well. For optimal visibility, you'll want to always drive with wiper blades that will keep your windshield reliably clear.

Brake Service

As part of brake service, pads will be replaced as necessary and all pertinent braking system components will be lubricated. If any serious brake issues are spotted, they'll be brought to your attention and you'll be given an estimate.

Check/Change Oil

For optimal engine health, it's important to always stay up to date with the oil change schedule called for in your owner's manual. Regular oil changes will help to ensure that your engine's moving parts stay thoroughly lubricated and protected from damage that could be caused by metal-on-metal contact.
