Tips to Get Your Car Ready for Spring

Motor Oil Change Now that Omaha is starting to thaw out from the winter, it’s time to think about spring. While this may involve cleaning your home, you don’t want to forget about your vehicle. These are the service tasks to schedule to ensure it’s prepared, including an oil change.

Windshield Wiper Replacement

If your wipers did a lot of work over the past several months, you’ll want to examine them closely. If the rubber is frayed or the plastic is cracked, these are clear signs that you need a replacement.

Battery Test

Freezing temperatures aren’t great for many car parts, especially the battery. And because batteries have a relatively short lifespan (generally only about five years), you should have yours tested. If the charge is getting low, you should think about having it replaced.

Oil Change

Cold weather also significantly impacts oil, causing it to thicken. When this happens, the moving parts in the engine can’t get adequate lubrication. This results in a loss of power, as well as a decrease in gas mileage.

Brake Inspection

With all the stop-and-go driving you probably did over the winter, certain parts of your braking system, such as the pads, may be worn down. After a thorough inspection, a technician will let you know what kind of shape everything is in and if anything needs to be replaced.

Make Sure Your Car is Ready for Spring

Does your vehicle need any of these maintenance tasks or perhaps some others? You can make an appointment now with a Woodhouse service center.
