Spring car maintenance; fixing your car for the transition
It seems that Winter is finally giving us a break. It has been one long, cold and harsh winter. However, the environment is finally warming up, and it is the perfect time to give your car a good wash and check for signs of wear and tear.
Spring is one of the most beautiful seasons of the year in Colorado. As the snow starts to melt, the amazing colors of nature begin to bloom. It is also the perfect time to fix and prepare your car for the summer transition. Even if you haven’t noticed it, you can count on the fact that winter has been harsh and rough on your vehicle.
Spring car maintenance tips
As soon as the snow melts down and the green begins to appear, you might feel encouraged by taking your car for a drive in the countryside. Nevertheless, this is a bad idea. As soon as the snow disappears, you need to give your car a complete and detailed car wash. This is very important because you need to get rid of all the salt, dirt, and toxic chemicals that are attached to your car undercarriage.
Take your time and go deep. Use a water hose with good pressure to get rid of dirt and salty snow chunks. Then, regularly clean the rest of the car exterior. Check and change the fluids and engine oil. Do the same with the filters.
If during the winter you change your tires to special winter tires, now is a good time to replace them again. If your car had the same tires during last summer and winter, check the pressure, thread, and consider rotating them.
Look for damages and fix them immediately
Once you finished inspecting the car basics and it is clean and dry, look for dents or signs of damage. Check the windshield, roof, hood, side doors, and mark every dent, crease or damage to the car bodywork that requires fixing. If you find any damage, it is essential to fix it right away. Metal bent under a crease or dent, can trap dirt, salt, and grime, boosting its deterioration and rust growth.
