How to Get Your Vehicle Ready for Spring
By Integra Tire Canada
Spring is a time for renewal and that includes sprucing up your car for the spring season. Winter can be harsh on your vehicle so the spring is the perfect time to service your vehicle. Here is a list of spring maintenance tips:
Get an Oil Change
You should have your vehicle’s oil changed once every 5,000 – 10,000km. Not changing your oil based on your vehicle’s recommended maintenance schedule can lead to engine failure.
Check Your Tires
Your tires have been sitting in your garage for the past 6 months so make sure to inspect them before you bring them into Integra Tire to get them changed over. Check for bulges, cracks, or impacted objects. We will also do a thorough inspection when we install them and check their pressure. We will also advise you if your tire tread is too low and your safety will be impacted. Our tire experts are here to help you find the right all-season tires for your vehicle if any of them need to be replaced.
Replace Your Wiper Blades
Your wiper blades have battled snow and ice all winter long. At some point in the winter, they could become warped or misaligned because of ice buildup so it is a good idea to replace your wiper blades each spring.
Check All of Your Fluids
Your vehicle contains more fluids than just your oil. Each spring it is important that you have your brake fluid levels checked, transmission fluid checked, power steering fluid checked, and coolant checked. Don’t forget to continually top up your windshield washer fluid this spring because we all know that you will be using it a lot on the slushy roads.
Have Your Windshield Fixed
Rocks and sand are getting throw at your vehicle all winter long so many of us now have cracks in the windshield. It’s important to get your windshield repaired to fill any chips or fix any cracks. Cracks in your windshield can interfere will your vision on the road and cause instability to the structure of your windshield.
