Get Your Car Summer Ready
- Check all the fluids or have the oil changed and let your mechanic handle it. Inspect your air filter and consider changing it, depending on when it was last changed.
- Change the windshield wiper blades. Ice and snow can wear the rubber down quickly. You should have a fresh set for the spring and summer rains.
- Check your tire pressure and treads. You should do this monthly, but make sure to do it now. You may want to check the lug nuts to make sure they’re tight. Wash the wheels and hub caps to get any chemicals off to prevent corrosion or rust.
- Check your engine for leaves or debris that might have accumulated. You might want to consider getting the engine professionally cleaned.
