Transitioning Your Car from Winter Mode to Spring Mode
April 6, 2021
Now that we’re finally starting to leave winter behind us, we can start to look forward to spring. Spring is a season of rebirth and warmth, and is one of the milder seasons. There are a few different things you can do to help prepare your vehicle for spring, and as an experienced Anne Arundel County auto repair shop, we wanted to take some time today to offer our expertise.
Remove Any Winter or Snow Equipment
During the winter you may put snow tires on your vehicle, and you may load up your trunk with shovels, salt, and extra clothes. All of these are just precautions to take, and they just may save your life one day, but during the spring these precautions become obstructive. Snow tires can decrease MPG when driving under normal conditions, and all the snow supplies you keep in your back will take up space and weigh your vehicle down.
Do Some Spring Cleaning
After a long winter your car’s likely showing some wear and tear, with salt likely coating your vehicle’s exterior and dirt and melted snow taking care of the interior. With spring approaching, now is the best time to clean up your car. No one likes to drive around in a dirt-filled jalopy, so drive confidently this spring with a car that looks like it just rolled off the lot.
Replace Your Wipers and Fill Up Your Wiper Fluid
April Showers may bring May flowers, but they can also make driving difficult and dangerous. Driving during a thunderstorm is dangerous enough, but can be next to impossible without fresh blades and ample fluid. How often you change your blades depends on what kind of blades you use and what kind of car you have, but a good rule of thumb is to check your fluids and blades every time the seasons change.
Get a Tune-Up and Oil Change
This is made only more important if your car had a rough winter, but whether you had issues this winter or not, it’s a good idea to bring your vehicle in to a professional Anne Arundel auto repair shop for a tune-up and an oil change. There are a lot of things that can go wrong within a car, and the changing temperaturesthat accompany the changing seasons can mess with an engine. Your best off bringing your vehicle to a professional for a tune-up and oil change.
