Winter not only puts our patience to the test, it puts our vehicles to the test. Cold weather, snow, ice, road salt, and potholes are just some of the curveballs winter likes to throw at your car. Now that spring has finally sprung, it is a good time for a little spring cleaning for your vehicle. Here are a few tips to help spring your vehicle to a clean spring.
Check your oil to make sure it is full and make sure to change your oil and oil filter if your oil if needed.
Check fluid levels for all your fluids, including: antifreeze/coolant, transmission fluid, brake fluid, and windshield washer fluid. Make sure all fluid is at proper levels.
Engine Air Filter
Check your air filter and replace it if it is clogged/dirty.
Inspect your windshield wipers for cracks and general wear and tear. Replace your wipers if worn down or if they are struggling to clear your windshield when it rains.
Clean the Interior
Make sure to clean any winter mess that made its way inside of your vehicle. This is also a good time to declutter your vehicle to lighten its load and increase your vehicles MPG.
Clean the Exterior
Give your vehicle a good wash, especially underneath your vehicle where road salt and other dirt can accumulate and start to corrode the underside of your vehicle.
