You may find yourself ready to hit the road and take some trips as the weather gets increasingly nicer, but it’s important to make sure your car is in the proper condition to start making those journeys. After the colder months, your car may be left with some signs of wear and tear. Here are a few reminders and tips to ensure your vehicle is running safely this spring:

Replace Your Wiper Blades

After being used for the snowy winter, your wiper blades won’t get a break as “April showers” begin to make way for May flowers. Torn or cracked blades can prove to be very unsafe during rainy weather, so replace and old or damaged wiper blades for a fresh start this spring.

Change Your Oil and Oil Filter

This is an important task to keep an eye on year round. There are recommended intervals at which these processes should be done based on your vehicle and what your last service was. Not replacing changing your oil properly can result in severe engine damage depending on how frequently you drive.

Check Other Fluids

There are other important fluids to keep an eye on during an oil change, such as your transmission, steering, and brake fluids. Especially important as the weather gets warmer, you should also be ensuring you have proper coolant levels to prevent your vehicle from overheating.
