After the long winter comes the spring and is your car prepped for it? It is not as easy as changing our wardrobe in the case of cars so, it is time to begin your car’s spring maintenance.
Maintaining your car is no easy feat and if you are looking to know how to do that in the winter, then Autoscooper is the right stop for that too.
Right from shopping for a car to maintaining it to increase its longevity, oh the troubles a car owner must face to keep a car safe.
We would like to give you some heads up on how to maintain your car and not take it to a workshop often. The drastic change in weather can leave the car behind with minor damages and when left unattended, it can cause troubles later.
Winter to Summer
It is normal for many car owners to get winter special or winter-appropriate parts like tyres that fit winter better.
But some things cannot be protected even after getting winter special products and one among them is the windshield wiper.
Wiping away snow or other particles stuck on your windshield, especially during the winter is hard on the windshield and the wipers.
So, get your wipers changed and examine your wind shields and see if it needs to be replaced too.
In really cold places, car users replace regular tyres with winter tyres. If you did the same, make sure you fit your car back with summer/spring tyres.
Using winter tyres in the scorching sun will end up damaging the tyres and causing trouble for your car.
Check for Rust
Winter leaves some really bad effects on cars even if you maintain them as much as possible, so having salty sediments left on your windshield can be cleaned but the ones in the underbody cannot be done easily.
Take your car out for a good car wash done with pressured water to clean out the sediments left so that they don’t cause any rust in the future.
Brakes Check For Spring
Get your brakes changed for the spring too. But if you did everything possible and maintained your car well during the winter, this can be ignored.
To be sure, make it a point to listen closely to the sounds your brake makes and the way the brakes feel while you use them on road.
Even if you feel any mild discomfort, it is better to get them checked.
Every part of your car works overtime when it comes to the winter season. So, it is best to check out everything but make sure you check the fluid levels.
It is usually best to often get your car fluid levels checked and it is definitely mandatory to do so when you are done with the winter season.
Keep it dry
Even though many are under the presumption that only the winter season keeps the interior messy, the summer or spring can equally do the same.
No matter how you look at it, even with an air conditioner, it is easy to get sweaty during the spring or summer transmission, so make sure you keep your car well-ventilated.
Clean up your interiors including the mat and your dashboard and make sure your dashboard is well protected from the sun too.
Every season has its impacts on your car, so make sure you maintain it well. Take your vehicle out for maintenance check and replace your oils, and fluids and check your tyre pressure often too.
Even if you are just using a leased car, this is not just about the expense, it is about your safety too, so make sure your car is well maintained and taken care of even if you leased a car just at the beginning of spring.
