Spring Car Care Tips

Currently there are some cold days outside but winter is winding down and the weather will soon warm up so we’ll be left with warm days that are bright and sunny. With more sun and rising temperatures comes an entirely different strategy for car care. 

At GUARDIAN INSURANCE AGENCY located in Fairburn, Lagrange and Norcross, we give you three spring car maintenance tips to keep in mind:

1. Change oil and check fluids:

In winter your car spends more time warming fluids so it is recommended that every spring you at least change your oil and other fluids too if possible. Mechanics recommend changing your car’s oil every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. Don’t forget to check window washing fluid levels, as well as your brake and cooling system fluids. Spring is also an ideal time to flush your transmission fluid.

2. Rotate tires and check alignment:

Snow and ice on the road make your car is bouncing all over the place. Potholes have formed, and you’re bumping into more curbs, gutters, and bumpers than usual and these can throw your alignment way off. The result is that your wheels aren’t perfectly straight, and your tires are going to wear unevenly. The front tires wearing out prematurely and that can lead to handling issues. You should check the tire pressure, including the spare should you ever need it. Your car’s tires affect the ride, handling, traction and safety. 

3. Inspect your brakes:

Nothing is more important than having brakes that function properly. Have a technician check the pads and rotors to ensure there are no safety issues. Neglecting them can lead to a costlier repair down the line. A quick measurement can give you the information to know if your brakes need to be changed now, or if you can wait until later in the year.
