Spring is here, and with the weather warming up it’s time to do a few easy maintenance tasks to help our cars recover from the harsh winter months. Follow these spring car care tips to get your car ready for the warm weather!
First of all, if you have winter-specific parts on your car, like winter tires and winter wipers, it’s a good time to change them out for all-season ones. Winter tires don’t work well in warm weather because their rubber is too soft, and winter wipers are better for snow than rain.
If you haven’t had an oil and filter change recently, get one now—your oil is probably dirty, since cold weather makes your engine work overtime. While you’re at it, have your fluids topped off and checked for leaks. You should also have your battery tested to make sure it’s still going strong.
Spring cleaning isn’t just for your house! Give your car a thorough wash inside and out to make your windows easier to see through and prevent rust from the buildup of salt and other chemicals on your car’s exterior.
Check your air conditioning. You’ll want it working before the hot weather hits, so if something is wrong with it, get it fixed ASAP! If you need to schedule spring service for your car, give us a call at Sunny King Honda.
