Dear Diary, Spring is officially upon us! The season brings warmer weather and roads trips. As you make travel plans to enjoy the rising temperatures, be sure to add car maintenance to your itinerary. Although you will no longer navigate around snow and ice, the roadways may get slick, thanks to April showers. And the changing season means you may need to change filters, wiper blades or tires. Here’s a list to get your car set for spring. 1. Spring Clean: Take time to clean your car inside and out. Be sure to get an undercarriage wash to rinse away the salt left from the winter. 2. Conduct Checks: The winter weather likely wore down your tire treads, which can cause your car to hydroplane. So, check the treads as well as the pressure. Spring is also a good time to rotate your tire. Also, replace your windshield wipers, if the salt caused some wear and tear. Replace your air filters, check your headlights and pump up your air conditioning system. Don’t wait for a warm day to find out your car is blowing out warm air. Click here for more tips!
