SPRING VEHICLE CARE

LET US GET YOUR VEHICLE PREPARED

After enduring a long, cold and harsh winter, you’re most likely craving those adventurous sunny road trips, family vacations, trips to your cottage, camping trips and wherever else those summer roads (and off-road trails) will take you. But how confident do you feel about the safety of your vehicle? 

With winter’s extreme cold temperatures and slippery road conditions, your car has had to work overtime in this season to keep you and your passengers warm and safe. It is very likely that all of this overtime work is showing signs of wear and tear. Springtime is the absolute perfect time to have your car fully inspected to find any small problems before they become dangerous and serious. 

Why Nott drive without worry?

Here are some great tips to ensure that your vehicle is in top notch condition this spring and summer. 

CHANGE OIL AND FILTER

Changing your oil and filter at the proper intervals that have been recommended by the vehicles manufacturer is one of the best ways to keep your engine running smooth and efficiently. Failing to do these scheduled oil and filter changes can cause your engine to perform poorly, consume more fuel as well as cause serious damage to your motor. 

CHECK YOUR FLUIDS

At the same time that an oil and filter change is being made, you should also check your engines carious fluids. These include power steering, brake and transmission fluids, windshield washer fluid and your coolant. If the levels of these fluids are low, top them up by flushing/replacing them as recommended in your owner’s manual.

CHECK YOUR BATTERY

Also, make sure that your battery is securely mounted and that both connections are clean, tight and free of corrosion. If your battery is more than 5 years old, it is a good idea to have it replaced by a new one. 

CHECK YOUR LIGHTING

It is very important that every light on your vehicle functions as it should. Having lights that don’t work, will cause other motorist to not be aware of your next move. This can lead to serious accidents which can be fatal especially at night. 

CHECK YOUR BELTS AND HOSES

Cold temperature can stiffen and damage rubber so it is important to have your belts and hoses inspected for damage. Hoses should be checked for stiffness, leakage, cracks, swells or other visual damage. Belts should be checked for looseness, cracks, frays, or tears. If replacing a belt, you may also have to replace the tensioner and pulleys to avoid slippage of the new belt. 

CHECK YOUR FILTERS

Your vehicle has many important filters that prolong its life which should be replaced regularly. Check your engine air filter, cabin air filter, and your fuel filter for damage or clogging and replace them if need be. 

CHECK YOUR TIRES

Between you and the road surface, your tires are the only thing in contact so it is very important to take good care of them. Check the pressure in all four tires (including the spare) monthly, and maintain the recommended tire pressure in your owner’s manual. Another important thing to check is the tread of your tires. Check for uneven or non-uniform wear and the sidewalls should be checked for cuts and bulges. Rotating your tires every 10,000 kilometres and replacing them when they are worn or damaged, will ensure a safe drive for all seasons.
