Simple Spring Maintenance Tips For Your Car

As winter winds down and the weather gets nicer, you need to make sure that you are properly maintaining your car.  Most importantly, you or your mechanic should check your engine and your alignment and suspension. Here are a few other easy things that you can do to get your car ready for spring.

Clean the Inside

Spring is the perfect time to clean the interior of your car.  Remove and throw away all the trash and debris that has accrued over the winter.  Vacuum the carpets and seats and wipe down all interior surfaces. Choose a warm, sunny day to complete this job.  

Wash and Wax

Now that the winter is over, a thorough wash and wax is important.  Winter driving can cause road grime, debris and salt to build up on your car which can affect the paint and finishes.

Tire Pressure

Cold winter temperatures cause your tire pressure to decrease and warmer temperatures can cause the pressure to increase, so make sure you check your tire pressure and that it meets your manufacturer’s specifications.

Wiper Blades

Your wiper blades may have taken a beating over the winter due to snow and ice, so you should check them for any signs of cracking or wear.  Because the spring brings with it rain and thunderstorms, you need to make sure your wiper blades are in good working order.
