6 Types of Auto Maintenance for Spring

6 Types of Auto Maintenance for Spring


Spring is here, temperatures are steadily ascending, and it'll soon be time to hit the road for warm-weather adventures. Before you hop on the highway, you'll want to make sure that your vehicle is prepared for the long haul. By getting to the shop for spring maintenance, you can be confident that your vehicle is fully prepared to drive safely and reliably. Here are six springtime auto maintenance tasks.

Check Tire Pressure/Tread

As air temperatures drastically change, you may see significant fluctuations in tire pressure. You'll want to check your tire pressure and make sure it's at about 35 psi. While you're at it, it's worth also checking your tread to make sure your tires are able to safely grip the road.

Brake Service

When you get brake service, pads will be replaced as needed, and all pertinent braking system parts will be thoroughly lubricated. And if any larger brake problems are spotted, they'll be explained to you in detail and you'll be provided with an estimate for the repairs.

Replace Wiper Blades

After periods of nasty winter weather, your wiper blades may have worn down to the point that they're no longer working efficiently. With healthy wiper blades, it'll be much easier to maintain safe visibility during heavy rains.

Test Battery

Over the winter months, icy temperatures may have taken a serious toll on your battery. After an extended period of frigid weather, you'll want to have your battery tested so you know that it isn't likely to leave you stranded.

AC Service

Before the temperature starts soaring, you'll want to verify that your AC system is working reliably. If you need AC repair, make sure you take your vehicle to a mechanic who specializes in this area of service.

Check/Change Oil

It's important to always follow your vehicle's oil change schedule so that moving parts remain thoroughly lubricated and protected from damage that can be caused by friction. And when you get your oil changed by a seasoned mechanic, you'll have an experienced set of eyes on your engine. This could lead to the spotting of an emerging engine problem that can then be addressed before it worsens and becomes more expensive to fix.
