Winter’s over, but don’t rest easy just yet. Here are a few pointers on what you should be doing for spring car prep.

Clean Everything – Including the Undercarriage

During the winter months, vehicles have a tendency to accumulate road salt, which can be really harsh on the mechanical aspects of your car. So wash on, in, and underneath your vehicle, and get all the trash out of the cabin, too.

Mind Your Tires

Cold temperatures are rough on tire pressure. Make sure everything’s filled according to manufacturer recommendations and get your tires rotated.

Replace Filters and Wipers

Oil and oil filter should be one of the first things replaced after winter, but the air filter should be replaced, too (it can affect your mileage by up to 10 mpg!). If your wipers are getting streaky, throw in a new pair, too.

Check the Battery

Low temperatures equal lower battery capacity, so have your battery system checked out.

Flush Your Cooling System

It’s recommended that you flush your cooling system every two years, so if you’ve done this recently, you’re fine; if you haven’t, prevent engine failure by cleaning out any rust and sediment.
