If you don’t feel like clearing out your closet just yet, getting a check-up at your local car service center is an easy way to jumpstart spring cleaning. Winter weather, however mild, can affect the longevity of your vehicle, and now is the perfect time for a fresh start.
Here are a few other tips to keep your car happy all spring and summer long.
Give Your Wipers a Refresh
Worn windshield wipers are no match for April showers! If you haven’t replaced yours in a while, consider doing so now. Wipers are relatively inexpensive, and they’re one of the few car installations that are easy to DIY.
Check Your Tire Pressure
Change is hard for everyone, and your tires are no exception. Fluctuating temperatures can affect your tire pressure, and underinflated tires aren’t great for your car’s fuel economy. Check your owners’ manual to find the proper tire pressure for your tires.
Swap Out Your Air Filter
Those blessed with seasonal allergies know that spring means one thing: more sneezing. But with a new air filter in your car, you’ll be able to breathe a sigh of relief. Experts recommend switching out your filter every 15,000 to 30,000 miles. If you haven’t done so in three years, now’s the time.
Change Your Oil
It’s the one thing we all put off until it’s too late. If your Check Oil light has been on all winter, now is the time to get your oil changed. Neglecting to change your engine oil regularly can lead to poor engine performance and higher fuel consumption, two things nobody wants.
Get a Check-Up
