Spring cleaning is here and that should include your vehicle! It all begins with the interior. Start with a trash bag and get rid of all the trash. Clear out any objects that have accumulated and give the carpets a good vacuum. Then give the exterior and undercarriage a thorough washing.
Add a check up to your list! Taking a look at the following components will determine if they need servicing:
Batteries, Plugs & Wires: All of these components give the spark to your vehicle. Winter stress can compromise their performance up to 60 percent. Test and replace old or weak batteries, plugs and wires, especially those more than 3 years old.
Tire Pressure: Cold weather can reduce tire pressure, so make sure all tires, including the spare, are properly inflated and balanced.
Belts and hoses: Inspect and replace worn or cracked belts, as well as hoses that are blistered, brittle or too soft. Belts and hoses older than 5 years, even if they look intact, might need to be replaced.
Brakes: It is advisable to inspect the brake system at least twice a year, including lines, hoses, parking brake and brake fluid for proper level. We rely on our brakes and something as simple as a brake pad change can help put an end to any worrys about brake safety.
Suspension & Wheel Alignment: Deep potholes aren't friendly to shocks and struts. An inspection can alleviate bigger issues down the road.
Fluid Levels: Engine oil, transmission fluid, brake fluid, antifreeze/coolant and windshield washer fluid.
Engine Air Filter
Windshield Wipers: Check them for wear and cracks and replace them if necessary.
