Spring Car Care Tips

Spring is a great time to give clean and recover your vehicle after the long, harsh winter. Taking care of your car not only ensures it runs smoothly but also helps to extend its lifespan. Here are some spring car care tips to help get your vehicle ready for the warmer months ahead:

  1. Change the Oil and Oil Filter: Regular oil changes are key to keeping your car running smoothly. Spring is the perfect time to get your oil changed and have your oil filter replaced. Oil change services done at University Chevron can ensure that your motor is protected and running at peak performance.
  2. Check the Tires: The harsh winter can take a toll on your tires, so please remember to check them for any signs of wear and tear. Check the tire pressure and make sure it’s at the recommended level for your vehicle. Also, check the tread depth and look for any cuts, punctures, or bulges.
  3. Inspect the Brakes: Your brakes are one of the most critical safety features in your car. Take your vehicle to our auto repair shop and have the brake system inspected, including the pads, rotors, calipers, and brake lines.
  4. Check the Battery: Cold weather can be brutal on car batteries, so it’s essential to check your battery’s charge and make sure the connections are clean and tight.
  5. Replace Wiper Blades: Winter weather can take a toll on your wiper blades, so it’s a good idea to replace them in the spring. After all, don't take "April showers bring May flowers" lightly.
  6. Check the Air Conditioning: As the temperatures rise, you’ll want to make sure your air conditioning is working correctly. Have your A/C system inspected and recharged if necessary.
  7. Check the Fluids: Spring is an excellent time to check all of your vehicle's fluids, including the coolant, brake fluid, power steering fluid, and transmission fluid. Top them off if necessary, or have them flushed if they are dirty.
  8. Clean the Interior and Exterior: Winter weather can leave your car looking and smelling less than fresh. Give your car a detailed cleaning both inside and out, including the carpets, seats, dashboard, and exterior.

By following these spring car care tips, you’ll help to ensure that your car is running smoothly and ready for the warmer months ahead. If you need any assistance with car maintenance, be sure to visit your local auto repair shop for expert advice and service.
