Keeping up with routine car maintenance can be difficult, but it’s a necessity for drivers who want to maximize the lifespan of their vehicle. Proper maintenance can help reduce the overall operating cost of your car as well. Check out these informative spring car maintenance tips from us here at Tom Naquin Chevrolet. Get out on the road and enjoy a spring drive!
- Battery – A car requires more current to start when it’s cold out. That can put a major strain on a battery, especially if it’s fairly old. Take a few moments to look the battery over for any abnormalities, like bumps or bulges, and clean the connections if possible. If the battery is more than a few years old, it might be best to get a new one, just in case.
- Wipers – Spring brings warm weather and heavy rains, which is why it’s necessary to have a good pair of windshield wipers. Fortunately, new wiper blades are fairly inexpensive and are easy to install. Simply consult your owner’s manual for exact instructions for your vehicle.
- Lights – Driving at night without properly functioning headlights will only lead to disaster. Heading out in the rain without headlights won’t end well either. Perform an inspection of your lights to ensure they work properly before you need them!
