SPRINGTIME CAR MAINTENANCE TIPS

February 6th, 2019 by

As winter thaws and spring begins, it’s time to perform some routine car maintenance on your vehicle. Whether it be an after-winter tune-up or just giving it a good scrub to get off winter’s grime, there are certain things you should do to your vehicle after the cold, snowy months.

Consult your car’s owner’s manual: Check your car’s owner’s manual to make sure you’re up-to-date on all recommended service tasks.
Perform basic service checks: Check your oil and take it into White Bear Lake Superstore if you need an oil change and new oil filter. You will also want to check all vehicle fluid levels and make sure you have appropriate amounts of each, including windshield wiper fluid, power-steering fluid, and brake fluid.
Check tires: For springtime, you will want to check to make sure that your tires are in good shape, as spring showers can make roads slippery. You should check both tire pressure and tread depth. If you use winter tires, swap them out for your all-season or summer tires.
Check windshield wiper blades: If your windshield wipers took a beating from winter’s snow and ice, replace them with a new pair.
Get a professional’s help: Winter puts a lot of stress on your vehicle, so you should take your vehicle in for servicing when spring arrives. A technician can service your cooling system, properly check the condition of engine belts, hoses, and coolant, and check your suspension and alignment. The highly-trained and certified technicians at White Bear Lake Superstore will happily assist you with this task as well as the ones listed above, making your springtime car maintenance simple and easy.

Stop into White Bear Lake Superstore for all your winter and spring maintenance must-haves.
