The groundhog said that we were going to have an early spring this year, and for most of North America, the furry creature who allegedly predicts weather from Western Pennsylvania was correct. This is good news if you like good weather, but not always necessarily for your car. After the winter, there are some checks that you may want to make on your vehicle. This is true whether you’re reading this in Philadelphia, Kansas City, Los Angeles or anywhere else. While some places with more snow may have vehicles that have been through quite a bit, this is advice from our mobile auto car wash experts that can help pretty much anyone.
Measure your Tire Pressure
We all tend to know when our tire pressure is way too low: your vehicle drives lopsided, or maybe you have some kind of notification on the dash. However, when spring starts, your tire pressure can change dramatically. See, when the temperature swings from one extreme to the next, it can make the pressure inside your tire swing, too. That can lead the tire to riding unevenly, which can make it take on greater wear and tear, forcing you to buy new tires earlier than you wanted. This is true in LA too, where mid-afternoon can be in the high eighties and by 9 PM it’s in the fifties. Pro tip: when the temperature swings dramatically, give your tire pressure a check. It only takes a few moments at most.
Actually Look at Your Washer Fluid
We’re all busy. Between our jobs, family, friends and more, it can feel like everyone has to be in a million places at once. This means that it’s easy and perfectly normal to not do some actions that might be beneficial. Most of us don’t really look at our washer fluid on the regular. You might want to check it after the winter. If you live in a cold area, you probably used quite a bit of it during the winter. That means that as spring rolls on, you might have less of it in your vehicle. Luckily, it’s only a couple bucks (literally) and easy to pour in.
