Spring Auto Maintenance Tips

 Mark your calendars every year and pick a date for a qualified auto technician to inspect your vehicle and give it a tune-up! Let the professionals handle it for you at AutoStar Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM of Hendersonville.


Here are some of the main items on our Spring Vehicle Maintenance Checklist:

 

1. Replace Wiper Blades 

During the winter months, it's likely your wiper blades have taken a good beating from snow, ice and sleet. If you've noticed your wiper blades are torn or cracked, you'll want to replace them as soon as possible. This way, you can ensure your vehicle is safe while on the road during the relentless showers sure to hit North Carolina in the warmer months ahead.

  

2. Change Your Vehicle's Oil 

As always, the experts at Hendersonville CDJR recommend changing your oil and oil filter at the recommended intervals to keep your engine running smoothly. When left neglected, your engine won't run as well, and engine damage can occur. Plus, not regularly changing your oil can result in higher fuel consumption.

 

3. Check All Fluids 

Anytime you get your oil changed, you'll also want to check your fluids. The service team at AutoStar CDJR of Hendersonville always checks each customer's power steering, brake, and transmission fluids, as well as windshield washer fluid and coolant. If the levels are low, we top them off and get you back on the road in no time.

 

4. Replace Your Vehicle's Filters If Necessary

You may not realize it, but there are several filters that are important to your vehicle's longevity and need to be replaced on a regular basis. We recommend inspecting your engine air filter, cabin air filter, and fuel filter for damage or clogging. If they aren't in good shape, you'll want to replace them with a fresh filter for the warmer months ahead.

 

5. Inspect your Tires 

Your tires are incredibly important to your vehicle's performance. There are several things you'll want to do to your tires once Spring rolls around.


First, you'll want to check the tread of your tires to ensure they are in good shape. Consult with an auto service technician to see if you may be due for new tires. If not, you'll want to rotate your tires to ensure that the tread is wearing evenly. We always recommend rotating your tires every 5,000 miles.


Finally, check each tire's pressure. If necessary, fill them to the optimal pressure recommended in your owner's manual.
