Springtime is just around the corner and it’s time to get your car ready for summer. The Wichita auto care technicians at Tracy’s Automotive can help you with that.
With the weather still a bit iffy, it may be hard to believe, but springtime is on its way.
“Spring is one of the prime times for auto maintenance,” the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence says. “Some preparation now will help ensure that your summer driving plans go as smoothly as you envision then now.”
ASE offers these spring auto care tips:
- Have hard starts, rough idling, stalling, etc. corrected before hot weather sets in.
- Flush and refill the cooling system (radiator) according to the service manual’s recommendations. The level, condition, and concentration of the coolant should be checked periodically.
- The tightness and condition of belts, clamps, and hoses should be checked by a qualified auto technician.
- Have a marginally operating air conditioner system serviced by a qualified technician to reduce the likelihood of more costly repairs.
- Change the oil and oil filter as specified in owner’s manual. (Properly dispose of used oil.)
- Replace other filters (air, fuel, PCV, etc.) as recommended.
- Check the condition of tires, including the spare. Always check tire pressure when the tires are cold.
- Inspect all lights and bulbs; replace burned out bulbs.
- Replace worn wiper blades and keep plenty of washer solvent on hand to combat summer’s dust and insects.
The easiest way to get these chores done is to drop your car off with the Wichita auto care specialists at Tracy’s Automotive to let them make sure your car is in shape. That way, you can spend that time doing something fun – the Monster Jam, maybe – while ensuring your car will be ready for the hot weather to come.
