Vehicle Service for Spring

Maintaining your car is vital to not only keep it looking great, but running great as well!  Many of us only think about summer and winter prep, but it’s extremely important to get your vehicle ready for the spring season as well. Dave’s Auto Repair is here to help so you’ll know just what needs to get done and if you can’t do it yourself, we’ve got you covered!

As the weather warms up, we tend to hit the road more for adventuring in the sun.  That means we need to give our cars a little TLC to help them transition from the frigid temps and conditions of winter.  One of the most important things you can do is check your battery.  Many people find themselves with dead car batteries in the spring.  Temperature changes alter the chemicals inside the battery cell, which can cause them to die.  Our technicians can perform voltage checks to see how much power is left in your battery.  It’s a good idea to do this about twice a year if your batter is three years old or older.

Another very important thing to check is your oil filter.  Spring means blooming flowers and pollen, and all of these contaminants can clog up your filter.  If it looks blackened at all, it’s time for a replacement!  While some owners choose to do their own oil changes, it’s always a good idea to let a professional handle it so that you know it’s done correctly.

Wiper blades are something most people don’t consider very important, but they can literally mean the difference between high and low visibility.  If they are old or damaged, they may leave streaks on your windshield that makes it nearly impossible to see through.  They should be changed out every two to three years but you can do it sooner if spring afternoon rain showers are catching you struggling to see.

Some other parts we suggest checking on are your tires, spark plugs, and brake pads.  These are all vital components of powering your vehicle and ensuring that you and everyone else on the road is safe.
