Get Your Vehicle Ready for Spring: A Comprehensive Guide

Spring is almost here, and its nearly time to hit the road after a long winter.

However, before you pack your bags and start your journey, it’s important to ensure that you get your vehicle ready for Spring. In this article, we’ll share some tips on how the team at Franklynn Automotive can help you prepare your vehicle for spring.

  1. Change Your Oil and Filter

Changing your oil and filter is one of the most important things you can do to keep your vehicle running smoothly. Spring is a great time to do this, as the cold temperatures of winter can cause oil to thicken, making it less effective in lubricating your engine.

  1. Check Your Tires

Your tires are crucial to the safety and performance of your vehicle. Make sure you have your tire pressure, tread depth, and alignment checked. This will help improve fuel efficiency and ensure your vehicle handles well on the road.

  1. Inspect Your Brakes

Brakes are one of the most critical safety features of your vehicle. Before hitting the road, make sure your brakes are working properly. This includes having the brake pads, rotors, and calipers inspected and replaced if needed.

  1. Replace Wiper Blades

Spring brings rain, so you need to make sure your windshield wipers are in top condition. If your wiper blades are more than six months old, it’s time to replace them.

  1. Check Your Battery

Cold winter temperatures can take a toll on your car battery. Before spring arrives, have your battery’s charge level checked and the cables and terminals inspected for signs of corrosion.

  1. Check Your Fluids

Your vehicle has many fluids that need to be checked regularly, including wiper fluid, brake fluid, power steering fluid, and coolant. Make sure to have these fluids checked and topped off as needed.

  1. Wash and Wax Your Car

Spring is a great time to wash and wax your car. This will not only make your vehicle look great, but it can also help protect the paint and prevent rust.

  1. Restock Your Emergency Kit

You never know what can happen on the road, so it’s important to have an emergency kit in your vehicle. Make sure your kit includes a first-aid kit, food & water, flashlight, jumper cables, and blankets.

  1. Schedule a Maintenance Check

If you’re not comfortable doing the maintenance checks yourself, schedule an appointment with our team and our certified master technicians will help ensure your vehicle is ready for the road.

Getting your vehicle ready for Spring is essential for a safe and enjoyable driving experience.

By following these tips, you can help ensure that your vehicle is in top shape. Give us a call to schedule your vehicle for a spring maintenance check and with a little preparation, you’ll be ready to hit the road and enjoy all that spring has to offer.
