Important Types of Spring Auto Maintenance

With spring in full swing and temperatures finally climbing, the open road will soon be calling your name. Before you hit the highway, you'll want to be sure that your vehicle is fully ready for the trek. Here are six important springtime auto maintenance tasks.

Test Battery

During the months of cold weather, your battery may have become seriously strained. By getting it tested, you can find out if your battery can be trusted to keep you moving on the down the road.

New Wiper Blades

Following months of poor weather, your wiper blades might not be in great condition anymore. Replacing your wiper blades is an easy and affordable task that improves safety by providing optimal visibility when rain clouds start unloading.

Brake Service

Brake pads typically should be replaced every 50,000 miles. During brake service, the mechanic will replace pads if necessary and will fully lubricate all relevant braking system parts. If any major brake problems are discovered, they'll be explained to you and you'll be given an estimate.

Check Tire Pressure

With major seasonal swings in air temperature, tire pressure can also fluctuate. Prior to setting out on a road trip, you'll want to make sure you're driving with proper tire pressure. Typically, pressure should be somewhere between 30 and 35 psi, but it's worth checking to see the specification for your particular tires.

AC Service

Before the heat turns scorching, it's best to make sure that your car's AC system is functioning optimally. As part of AC service, the mechanic will ensure that all components are working efficiently.

Check/Change Oil

Staying current with your oil change schedule is one of the kindest things you can do for your engine. To ensure proper lubrication of moving parts, you'll want to see if you're due for an oil change before setting out on the open road.
