Prepping Your Car for Spring

Posted on March 25th, 2019 by ncapmanage

Spring is finally here which means warm weather is heading to Chicago. In addition to nicer weather, the change in seasons means that your car needs to be prepared for the post-winter roads. Many of your auto parts in Alsip will have to be replaced because they are worn out from working so hard during winter. At New Cats Auto Parts, we have some tips to help prepare your car for spring.

Replace Wiper Blades

Windshield wiper blades take a beating during winter and it is best to change them with the seasons. Especially as the rainy season approaches, it would be a good idea to have fresh wipers to improve visibility and reduce the risk of an accident.

Quality Carwash

Visit a carwash that will wash your vehicle’s exterior as well as the undercarriage of your car. Even though you cannot see under your car, that is where road salt and other lingering elements will accumulate. A thorough cleaning when the seasons change will help avoid rust and build-up.

Take Care of Your Tires

If you swapped your tires out for snow tires during the winter months, now is the time to change them back. Snow tires are not meant to handle spring conditions and will wear down much faster than all-season tires. Switching your tires is also a good time to check tread depth and tire pressure.
