Does Your Vehicle Need a Spring Tune-Up?

When the weather gets warmer, it’s a good time to think about getting your vehicle checked to make sure it’s not experiencing any damage caused by severe winter weather. Snow, ice, and freezing temperatures can take a toll on your vehicle, especially if it’s been parked outside for a majority of the time.

To officially welcome the warmer months ahead, why not give your vehicle a proper spring tune-up? A tune-up is a very basic, routine type of maintenance that should be performed regularly to ensure your vehicle is performing the way it should be.

Spring tune-ups increase the safety, performance, and lifespan of your vehicle.

Spring Tune-Up Checklist:

1. Get an oil change

After a long season of driving in fluctuating temperatures, your engine oil has been through a lot. The various weather changes (snow, slush, rain, mud, etc.) cause your engine filter to work harder than normal. Keeping your filter and engine fluids clean and topped off is important. During a tune-up, all the fluids, including the washer fluid, will be checked and refilled, as well as the engine oil.

2. Spark plugs & wires

Spark plugs can get worn out over time, especially in colder weather, which can lead to a delay in your engine turnover, hard starts, a misfire, or even cause your engine to stall. During your spring tune-up, the spark plug wires will be inspected and replaced if they are not functioning correctly.

3. Cleanse your fuel filter

One of the essential items to check during a tune-up is your vehicle’s fuel filter. The fuel filter is a device that filters out dirt and other particles from your fuel, so it burns cleanly. During a tune-up, the fuel filter will either be cleaned using a special cleansing liquid, or it will be replaced entirely depending on the condition of the filter.
