Spring Automotive Maintenance – Part 2
Let’s be honest, there is lots of maintenance and minor repairs that needs to be done year round to keep your vehicle performing at its best. But who really wants to check fluids, lights etc. on a cold winter day. Whether or not you neglected your ride this winter, you should consider the following Spring Automotive Maintenance.
- Check your headlights to make sure they are adjusted properly and are not covered by dirt and debris. This will ensure that you can see other drivers and they can see you!
- Check your brakes! Like your windshield wipers, your brakes often work overtime in the winter. So make sure you check your brake pads to make sure they are not worn.
- Get a Tune Up. A poorly tuned engine can reduce fuel efficiency. To ensure your vehicle’s peak performance, get a Tune Up at least once a year
