Recovering From Winter’s Wear and Tear

Winter seems to wreck havoc on our vehicles, especially older cars or trucks. As professional auto mechanics in Westland, Michigan servicing local residents of Westland and Canton, we have seen it all. Pot hole damages, blown tires, dead batteries, leaks, you name it. As we prepare for spring there are things you can do as old man winter leaves us to ensure you’re not spending the first beautiful day on the side of the road.

How can you prepare your car or truck for spring?

Check your vehicles tire pressure, brakes, and fluids to ensure that none are low or need to be replaced.  Due to the drastic increases and decreases in temperature, fluids such as oil or brake fluid tend to thicken causing your vehicle to work harder. Also, tubes that transfer the fluids contract and expand which can result in oil leaks or cause problems with your brake lines.

You may want to consider getting a professional oil change and car inspection as spring arrives. This will give your vehicle a fresh start as it adapts to the warmer temperatures. It is still important to make sure that you get an oil change every 3,000 miles for maximum performance. See the difference between synthetic or conventional oil to find out which is best for your vehicle. We are your local go to shop for oil changes in Canton or Westland, MI.
