Spring Maintenance for Your Vehicle

by | Apr 5, 2022

Spring has arrived! Cheers! And while crocuses bloom in the garden and the sun shines longer, there’s a few seasonal chores that need to be done, including raking the lawn, and booking your regular spring vehicle maintenance. The winter environment is harsh on vehicles and after the spring arrives, there’s a few tasks to complete to get your car ready for those weekend road trips around Kamloops.
The first step is to have an assessment by one of our professional auto technicians. We may recommend oil and filter changes, wheel alignments, spark plug replacements, fuel injector cleaning and brake systems check and replacement, depending on what your vehicle needs.
Battery checks: Cold temperatures can sap your battery, and if you’re one of the many who have worked remotely over the last two years, letting your car sit idle for longer periods of time can also drain your battery, because when you drive your vehicle, you’re charging the battery through the alternator. When you don’t drive it, the battery has nothing to charge it.
Check the fluids: Checking the fluids in your truck, car or SUV is an important part of ensuring the longevity of your vehicle. Fluid checks include brake fluids, power steering, transmission and coolant. If fluids are below the specified levels according to your manual, have them topped up. Of course, keeping your oil changes up to date is vitally important for running at peak performance any time of the year.
One item often neglected is windshield wiper blades. Your windshield wipers are a huge safety feature on your car, even though they seem relatively inconspicuous. Check for signs of winter damage, and swap them out for spring and summer blades if needed. We can replace them if they are damaged and check the windshield wiper fluid. Other essential checks include brakes, headlights and tires.
