Wash Your Vehicle – Especially The Undercarriage
Wash your vehicle thoroughly. The Winter months have taken a toll on your vehicle, so it is important to wash away all of the salt, sand and debris that has accumulated. Road salt can cause damage to a car’s exterior, and it’s undercarriage ( That is where corrosive elements can do the most damage). Bottoms of doors can get coated with grime, so be sure to wash there as well.
Use a garden hose with as much water pressure as your system can muster to loosen winter grime and salt. Or, if you have a movable lawn sprinkler that’s low enough, set that under the vehicle to wash away what you can’t reach.
Spring is also a good time to check your entire vehicle for rust, which can worsen during the winter months.
Replace Wiper Blades
Wiper Blades go through a lot in the Winter. Check the blades to make sure the have full contact with the windshield and have not dried out. Also, refill the wiper fluid reservoir.
It’s important to check tire pressure after weather changes. Check your owner’s manual for the recommended pressure for your tire, and never exceed that. Higher pressure generally results in improved steering response and fuel economy, but a stiffer ride, and it wears out the tread in the center. Underinflation generally provides a smoother ride, but it causes tires to wear out at the sides. It also wastes gas because tires need more power to push the vehicle.
Also, rotate the tires. Rotating your tires extends the life of them and ensures safe driving
Your suspension system keeps your car up off the road. From there, it’s responsible for a smooth and comfortable ride. Suspensions keeps the car wheels firmly planted over bumps and through curves on roads and interstates. Your suspension system has many essential parts that do a big job. They should be inspected for damage and excessive wear at least once a year.
Worn shocks can increase the time and distance it takes you to stop your car in an emergency situation.
