How to Prepare Your Car for Spring

Man Washing Car

As the seasons change, you may be wondering how to prepare your car for spring. You may have noticed signs your car needs a tune-up, or you simply want to make sure that it is ready for the warmer weather ahead. Whatever the case may be, preparing your car for spring is quite important. Learn how to prepare your car for spring with this guide below from Tulley BMW of Nashua near Manchester. 

Preparing Your Car for Spring

You’ve likely heard about spring cleaning for your home, but what about your car? Get your car looking like new again with these steps:

  • Wash the exterior of your vehicle, including the undercarriage. It is also beneficial to apply a coat of wax. 
  • Throw away trash that has accumulated over the last few months. 
  • Organize the items you keep inside the cabin.
  • Use a cleaner that is specifically designed for the interior of your vehicle to clean all of the hard surfaces. 
  • Clean the inside and outside of your windows and windshield. 
  • Vacuum all cloth surfaces. 

There are also a few other important tasks to perform when preparing your car for spring. Check your tires for wear, and make sure they are inflated to the proper level. Replace the wiper blades and fluid because winter weather can cause the wiper blades to wear down more rapidly. Get an oil change, and check your battery. If the battery is getting weak, it may be a good idea to replace it before you end up getting stranded in Lowell, MA. 

Signs Your Car Needs a Tune-Up

Your car may also need a little TLC to ensure it is operating at peak performance on Westford roads. What does a tune up do for your car? Quite a bit, actually. It can help prolong its lifespan and ensure that it is running safely and as the manufacturer intended. What are the signs your car needs a tune-up? While you may not notice any warning signs beforehand, there are a few common signals that a tune-up is needed.

  • It is difficult to start the car
  • The car stalls more often
  • Fuel efficiency has decreased
  • You hear engine knocking or experience rough idling or acceleration
  • You notice issues with the brakes such as sponginess or unusual noise
  • You notice vibrations when you start, stop, or steer the vehicle
