Spring Tune Up Tips

Just Around the Corner

Even though winter was on the tamer side this year, it is still nice to see spring beginning to return to Edmonton. At it does, it is important to spend a bit of time getting your vehicle ready for the seasons ahead. Today we will look at some Spring Tune Up Tips to help you do just that.

Engine Oil

The oil in your vehicle performs differently based on the outside temperature and the contrast between winter and summer can be fairly dramatic. Make sure to have your oil and filter changed out in the spring to get ready for warmer temperatures. If applicable, changeover to a slightly thicker oil for these hotter months. Keeping your oil clean can help improve fuel economy and reduce engine wear.

Tires & Alignment

If you had your winter tires put on last fall, be sure to book a time to switch back over to your summer or all-season tires. Our parts and service departments are happy to help you find and install a new pair if you are in the market for that this coming year. If you aren’t switching tires, it may still be a good time to get them rotated or at least have the tread checked for any excess wear While you are getting the tires checked, it is a good idea to have the vehicle alignment looked at as well. Winter driving can be hard on your vehicles alignment, and you want to make sure you are driving straight for spring and summer.

Fluids & Filters

Be sure to book a general service appointment to check over the various fluids under your hood. Brake fluid, transmission fluid, coolant, and more may require a top up or even a flush depending on the mileage of the vehicle. While you are under the hood, make sure to check out both the air filter and the cabin air filter if applicable. Spring brings a lot of pollen and other allergens, so make sure your vehicle’s filters are not already plugged up.
