Spring Maintenance Tips

Auto Mechanic

If you want your vehicle to transition from winter to spring without a problem, it’s important to provide seasonal service to your vehicle. These spring maintenance tips will help your auto run safely and efficiently.

Oil Changes

Whether you have your vehicle’s oil changed by a professional or whether you learn to do it yourself, it’s important to perform this maintenance step regularly. Your owner’s manual will tell you how frequently your specific model needs this service.

Wiper Blades

You can expect plenty of rain showers in the spring, which means it’s important to have a good set of wiper blades on your vehicle. New wiper blades are inexpensive and easy to change, and can make a huge difference in visibility when driving in the rain.

Tires

Tires go through a lot during the winter, as they regularly encounter snow, ice, and potholes. Check the tires on your vehicle to ensure there’s no damage — like cracks or bulges — and have them replaced if need be.

Check-Up

After a long winter, it’s important to give your vehicle an overall checkup or to have a professional inspect the under-the-hood area. Look at fluid levels, check the condition of the filters, and make sure that the hoses and belts are still in good condition.

Car Service

Now that winter is finally behind us, we can start looking ahead to warm weather and planning our spring and summer getaways. Such planning should include some car maintenance goals. These spring service tips will guide you in prepping your vehicle for the new season.

Consult the Owner’s Manual

Get Minor Problems Fixed Now

Have you noticed that your car’s air conditioning and heating system seems to be running poorly? Or maybe you’ve found that your vehicle doesn’t always start smoothly and confidently, or that it’s making a strange noise sometimes when idling. The extreme heat that’s on its way with summer is likely to make any current problems even worse. Stay proactive and bring your vehicle into Sharon Chevrolet ASAP to resolve potential issues now before they become more costly.

Stock Wiper Fluid

Though the days of road salt may be gone for now, spring and summer bring their own forms of road debris like dust and bugs. Make sure your windshield wipers are in good condition, and that your vehicle is well-stocked on wiper fluid.
