Seasonal Maintenance

Our tire & automotive service experts will help ensure your vehicle is in top shape for safe motoring this spring and summer.

Spring maintenance is an ideal way to improve your vehicle's performance and fuel economy, reduce its environmental impact, and ensure you're ready for the warm months ahead. As we transition out of winter, your vehicle manufacturer requires certain safety and maintenance items to be inspected on your vehicle. Integra Tire's service experts are trained and equipped to perform these important services.

Tires

Tires

As temperatures change, so does the air pressure in your tires. Over the course of winter, it is not uncommon for tires to lose two to five pounds of air pressure, resulting in increased rolling resistance, changes in traction capabilities, uneven wear patterns and an increase in fuel consumption.

If your current tires are intended for spring and summer use you probably need to have them rotated as part of your regular maintenance schedule. Make arrangements for both a tire pressure check & inspection (complimentary at any Integra Tire location) and a tire rotation, if due.

Should your vehicle require new tires, please be aware that many of our tire partners are offering spring incentives on their products. Call your local Integra Tire dealer for more information.

Batteries

Batteries

Winter driving is taxing on your battery and charging system; cold starts and heating system operation all contribute to battery wear. Spring is a great time to have your battery tested and inspected. Battery terminal posts and cables should be inspected and cleaned as necessary to ensure trouble-free operation.

Wiper Blades

Wiper Blades

Wiper blades are an inexpensive but vital part of maintaining good visibility. Over the winter months they become worn from removing ice and slush from your windshield. Check them for wear and ensure they are making good contact with your windshield.

Fluids

Fluids

Your vehicle’s engine oil should be changed every 5,000 kilometres or three to four months; make this part of your spring maintenance, including a check-up on your power steering fluid, transmission fluid and antifreeze/coolant, which should be refreshed every two years. Our automotive technicians can pressurize your cooling system to check for any leaks, including your radiator cap.

Under Car Care

Under Car Care

Now is a good time to inspect the entire brake system, including brake linings, rotors and drums. Shocks and struts should be inspected for physical damage such as leaking, rust or dents.

Emission System

Worn spark plugs, aging wires or a restricted fuel injector can reduce your fuel efficiency as much as 30 percent. They should be inspected annually and replaced or serviced as needed.
