It's Time to Tackle Spring Maintenace for Your Car

Get Your Car Washed

During the winter, driving through snow, rain, and even mud is inevitable. Unfortunately for your car, these substances can be quite corrosive and damaging. Now that winter's ending, it's a good time to head to the car wash and remove all the grime left on your car. Do your best to wash your car as thoroughly as possible. Think of it as a spring cleaning for your car. Get every nook and crevice clean so that your car doesn't suffer any more damage. Afterward, dry your car and give it a new layer of wax. This will help keep the body and paint protected from the elements all through the spring. Don't forget to also clean out your car's interior. It's very likely that moisture and mud made it into your car at some point during the winter. Use this time to clear your car of junk and also clean its surfaces so that they aren't damaged by these substances.

Don't Forget the Undercarriage

This also goes with washing your car, but it's often an area that's missed. Since you may not see your car's undercarriage as much as its body, it can be hard to remember that it even exists or that it needs to be cared for as well. While washing your car, keep in mind that the undercarriage can often have more built-up debris because of its proximity to the road. This debris can often latch on and lead to corrosion and rust. Substances like road salts can be especially damaging, so it's important that they are washed away promptly.

Get an Oil Change

After a harsh winter, your car's engine may need some fresh help staying clean and running strong. Especially if you were using winter-grade oil, now is a good time to give your car an oil change. Your oil may no longer be effective, so be sure to check on it and decide if fresh oil is needed. Stick to synthetic oil for the best results all year round, no matter the weather conditions.

Get Your Tires Checked By a Professional

Finally, your tires will need some attention after maneuvering the winter roads. Not only have they been in contact with snow, ice, and other elements, but they may be a bit beat up after running into things like potholes and speed bumps. These can often be covered by rain and other substances during the winter, leaving you more susceptible to driving over them at a faster speed than you normally would. Check the tire sidewalls for signs of damage, such as tears, bubbles, and even missing rubber. This sort of damage can be dangerous and lead to scary situations on the road. It's also a good time to check your tire tread. You want to be sure that it's still in good enough shape to grip the road and keep you safe. If your tires are worn or damaged, it may be time to invest in a new set. Speeding over potholes can lead to issues with the suspension and alignment. This can lead to further issues down the road caused by things like uneven wear. To avoid future problems as a result of this, take your car into the shop to have your tires aligned and rotated.
