Spring Maintenance Checklist
- Change your oil and filter. Always stay on track with the recommended intervals in your owner’s manual to keep your engine clean and running at peak level.
- Replenish your fluids. Top off or flush out your car’s power steering, brake, transmission, and windshield washer fluids, as well as your coolant.
- Rotate your tires and check the pressure. Your tread needs to be even and air pressure must be full for you to drive safely. Or, to really ensure smooth rides, balance and align your wheels.
- Check your wiper blades. After a winter of hardcore use, your wiper blades may need to be replaced.
- Test your battery. Make sure it’s still fully charged after a cold winter.
- Check all belts and hoses. Freezing temperatures can harden and damage hoses and other rubber components.
