Your Spring Maintenance Checklist 

After months of harsh winter weather, salt exposure, and low temperatures, your vehicle needs care. That’s why April is National Car Care Month, making it a great time for spring maintenance. For the best spring service, use this checklist of the most pressing service items that should be completed this spring: 

1.) Get Your Oil Changed

Getting regular oil changes is easy and can extend the life of your car. Engine oil is one of the most important fluids in your car because it helps keep your engine running smoothly and lubricates engine components. As you drive, oil breaks down and is exposed to contaminants reducing its lubricating properties. Certified mechanics recommend having your vehicle’s oil changed every three months or 3,000 miles. 

2.) Have Your Car Battery Tested

After a long, cold winter, your car battery is probably not in top condition. With the transition from low to high temperatures, spring weather may evaporate essential battery fluids and speed up corrosion. 

3.) Check Your Tire Pressure

Fluctuations in temperature that often happen during Spring are more likely to cause fluctuations in tire pressure, maybe even causing a flat tire. Avoid the high price of having your tire changed on the side of the road by bringing your car in for spring maintenance. 

4.) Replace Wiper Blades and Wiper Fluid

After months of clearing away snow and ice, your wiper blades are probably dull and damaged. They’re not going to do a good job wiping away water during spring rain showers. Get ahead of the changing seasons by replacing your blades and topping off your wiper fluid. 

5.) Clean Or Replace Your Vehicle’s Lights

Have you been having to squint more often when driving at night? It’s possible your headlights and taillights are only giving off a hazy glow because they are so dirty. While you might need to replace them if they’re losing their brightness, you can first try deep cleaning them.
