As winter’s rough weather and gloomy skies gives way to spring showers, it’s important to remember that now is as good a time as ever to get some routine spring vehicle maintenance done. Here are a few tips from Bryan Honda to help you keep your vehicle running smoothly as the weather warms up.
Schedule your routine maintenance. Your vehicle will need its regular check-up to keep it running smoothly, so make sure you keep up with the recommended service schedule listed in your owner’s manual.
Flush and refill your car’s cooling system. Regularly check the level, condition, and concentration of your cooling system’s coolant. This is especially important as temperatures start to rise.
Get your air conditioner checked out. Hot weather means it’s time to crank up the air conditioning in your car—but it’s hard to do so if your car’s AC isn’t working. Get your air conditioning unit serviced now, so you don’t have to drive without cool air during the squelching summer days.
Check your tire pressure. As the temperature changes, so does your tire pressure. Cold temperatures tend to make your tire pressure drop, and hot temperatures will cause it to rise. Make sure your tires aren’t over- or under-inflated, and keep them within your vehicle’s recommended pressure range.
