This Year, Prepare Your Car for Spring in Advance with These Easy Tips

Prepare Your Car for Spring

Believe it or not: Spring is already just around the corner. Here are some quick tips we’ve put together to prepare your car for spring.

Believe it or not: Spring is already just around the corner. Whether you’ve noticed the rising temperatures or the chirping birds, it’s time to alter your vehicle to prepare it for spring weather, as opposed to the chilly hazards of winter.

Here are some quick tips to prepare your car for spring:

  • Examine your tires, looking for pressure, tread, and alignment. If you’ve been using winter tires, consider switching back to all-season.
  • Refill your windshield wiper fluid, which will be desperately needed in the upcoming buggy season.
  • Make sure that you are up to date on your latest oil change, and if not, be sure to get your oil changed properly, and perhaps even your oil filter.
  • Double check that your air conditioning is working and that the air it provides is fresh and clean. You won’t want to find yourself stuck in a stuffy car.
  • Explore how your battery has held up after a long winter. If you’re not sure what to look for, consider the help of a professional.
  • And lastly, take “spring cleaning” seriously, giving your car a thorough cleaning both inside and out.

Say Goodbye to Winter: Spring Car Cleaning Tips

With these tips get your spring car cleaning done right!

With these tips get your spring car cleaning done right!

Warm weather is right around the corner, and it has even appeared in some places around the country. That means it is time for spring car cleaning, the one time of year for driver’s to detail their cars from bumper to bumper. Although it is better to clean your car as often as possible, doing a detailed job once a year can increase resale value and make driving more enjoyable.

The first thing to do, according to Fox News, is to clean the underbody. Salt, dirt, and even sand accrue in the winter, leading to corrosion if you are not quick to remove it. If your local car wash doesn’t have an underbody option, simply hose off the bottom of your car, lifting it off the ground as much as possible. Do not use soap – simply spray it clean.

Get the hard to reach places. Make sure to scrub the bottoms and edges of the doors, under door handles, and clean window channels. When you are finished cleaning your car, give it a wax and apply silicone spray where necessary to add an extra protective layer.

Always replace wiper blades in the spring. Winter does serious damage to your wipers, making it essential to get new ones. Also, take this time to top off your washer fluid, and consider applying RainX or any other rain-resistant formula.

Finally, top off fluids and check tires. Ok, this isn’t exactly cleaning, but it is standard vehicle maintenance. Make sure you are not running low on oil, transmission fluid, hydraulic brake fluid, coolant, or power steering fluid. (Low brake fluid may mean it is time for new brake pads.) Make sure there are no uneven wear patterns or bulges on your tires, and check the pressure.
