Did you know that April is National Car Care Month? This makes it a great time of year to take the time to care for your car. Why not add car maintenance to your list of spring cleaning tasks? There is simply not a better time to do it. After all, summer road trips are just around the corner.
At Auto Electric we care about cars and provide expert car maintenance for Golden Valley. That’s why we’d like to take a minute to discuss proper car maintenance as well as recommend a few key areas you should focus on for National Car Care Month.
So, why National Car Care Month? As winter comes to an end, it is time to get your car ready for spring and summer driving. Spring and even summer driving can bring their own hazards such as slick and wet roads. It is important to make sure you tires, brakes and windshield wiper are ready for the rain and summer storms. Check your tires and tire pressure on a regular basis and particularly before a road trip. Not only is this a safety issue, but improperly inflated tires could also affect your gas mileage. You can check your car’s manual to find out how many pounds per square inch of air each tire should have. And, your local car maintenance shop should know this information as well.
It’s also a good time to take care of that oil change. Been putting it off because of the nasty weather? Well, now is a great time to bring the car into Auto Electric for some car maintenance! Most cars need an oil change every 3,000 to 5,000 miles, depending on the make, model and year. Consult your owner’s manual if you are not sure how often you should get yours changed.
And, when you bring your car to us for car maintenance, we can check all of your car’s fluid levels to ensure there’s plenty to keep your car running safely. Does your car have enough antifreeze? Do you need more windshield wiper fluid? Power steering fluid? The experts at Auto Electric can go through them all during your next scheduled car maintenance to ensure everything is in good shape for the spring.
