Spring Maintenance Checklist For Your MA Auto Shop

Spring Maintenance Checklist For Your MA Auto Shop

Although New Englanders were recent victims of Mother Nature’s long-lasting winter, it’s never too early to think spring. Hey, technically, it is spring! That being said, it’s time to consider a visit to your trusted MA auto shop, Ray’s Auto. Winter around these parts can be tough on your vehicle, so it should come as no surprise that now is the best time of year for maintenance.
Before planning your summer road trips, consider these helpful suggestions for spring maintenance for any vehicle.

 

How are your tires holding up?

From potholes to salt, your tires are first in line for winter abuse. Because of that, leaks and other damage are common occurrences. Checking your tire pressure and current condition will bring peace of mind that your vehicle will safely get you and your family where you need to go. Even if you’re looking to swap out winter tires for your performance ones, checking in with a professional is always recommended.

Fluid check one-two one-two

From oil to coolant, power steering to transmission fluids, levels need to be checked and topped. Vehicles naturally run hotter during the spring and summer months, making this type of maintenance crucial.

 

You’ll be grateful when your air conditioning is working properly

When summer gets underway, air conditioning work is in high demand. Get ahead of the lines and schedule your system check while it’s still cool outside. Believe us, when the hot and humid days set in, you’ll be happy you did!

 

Windshields need a little TLC?

Another common mishap of New England winters is cracked windshields and worn wipers. While wipers are an inexpensive and quick fix, windshields may become costly if left unattended. By acting sooner than later, you may be able to save hundreds by filling a crack instead of having to face a full windshield replacement.

 

Wash and wax your investment

There’s nothing quite like a detail after the dirty winter season. If you’re like us, you probably haven’t washed your car all winter! Treat your car, and yourself, to a detail and drive away feeling like you’re driving a brand new vehicle!

 

Emergency kit and spares full?

Often emergency kits are filled with seasonal items. Whether you utilized your kit over the winter or not – it’s always a good habit to check in and reinspect the items you have on hand.
