Oil Changes & Other Car Spring Cleaning Essentials, Newark, Ohio

Spring is in the air—is your car ready for warm-weather driving? From oil changes to tire inspections, there are several steps you can take to ensure that your spring and summer are free of unexpected auto repair mishaps. Here are some of the top tasks you should undertake this season.

Oil Changes & Other Top Car ‘Spring Cleaning’ Tasks

1. Get an Oil Change

Clean oil is essential for your engine’s well-being. Changing your oil and engine filter before the weather warms up will help you enjoy better gas mileage and engine performance—perfect for those summer road trips.

Rising temperatures can lead to natural fluctuations in your tire pressure. Be sure to do a quick check to make sure air pressure levels are still within recommended guidelines. Spring is also a good time to check tire tread depth. If your tires are excessively worn, it’s time for a replacement.

3. Replace Wiper Blades

Ice and snow can cause severe deterioration of your windshield wiper blades. With spring showers on the way, it’s best to replace old wiper blades now so you can have the visibility you need to stay safe during April showers.

4. Exterior Cleaning

The rock salt used to clear ice off roadways can cause corrosion and paint damage, so don’t let it stay on your vehicle! A thorough washing and waxing of your vehicle exterior will remove winter contaminants and provide much-needed protection against UV rays. Don’t forget to clean underneath your car’s chassis to get rid of all corrosion-causing particles.
