Just like your home benefits from a thorough spring cleaning, so too can your vehicle benefit from a range of basic maintenance tasks.

Throughout the year, your home will become filled with general clutter and a range of trinkets. Over time, this results in a lot of clutter, which your spring cleaning is great for clearing out. The same applies to your vehicle, as it accumulates a range of outside debris, stored items, and even general messiness.

Why Not Include Your Vehicle in Your Spring Cleaning?

Ace Hi Oil knows the importance of a healthy engine and vehicle and has prepared a post with tips on spring cleaning your vehicle.

Tires and Wheels

When you think about it, it’s your tires and wheels which do much of the work involved in getting you from A to B. Despite this, motorists don’t often afford their tires or wheels much attention or even maintenance. This spring, be sure to include your tires and wheels in your cleaning plans, keeping these points in mind:
  • Check the condition of your tires and your wheels, such as looking for cracks.
  • Clean away any dirt or oil and fluid build up.
  • Look for and remove any debris lodged in your wheels or tires.
  • Is the pressure in each tire correct?
  • While you are down there, spend some time checking out the condition of your brakes.

Check Your Fluids

While your engine may do all the heavy work as you drive, it’s reasonable to say that without the supporting oils and fluids, your engine wouldn’t run for very long. For this reason, it’s important to pay attention to your fluids. When checking your levels, keep these points in mind:
  • Instead of topping up your engine oil, give your vehicle a synthetic oil change.
  • If you have topped up your other fluids throughout the year, replace the current fluid by flushing it out.
  • When replacing fluids, make sure you’re using the best products available.
  • If you spill any fluids or oils, clean it up before you move on to the next task.
  • Keep your leftovers in the trunk for emergencies.

Air Filter

It’s safe to say that the majority of motorists are aware that their engine utilizes an air filter. Largely because it’s a common fee to pay when visiting a mechanic. However, what motorists don’t know is that an air filter is an item which can be replaced by owners. Check your owner’s manual or an online tutorial to find out how to safely remove your old air filter and replace it with a new one. Not only can this improve the performance of your engine but you can also reduce your mechanic costs.

Interior

It’s important that the interior of your vehicle is just as clean and in good working order as your engine and the vehicle itself. When cleaning the interior of your vehicle, consider these points:
  • The first step is to remove absolutely all personal items and trash from the car, including the trunk and any storage spaces.
  • Use the range of vacuum attachments to clean hard-to-reach areas, such as where the pedals are.
  • A very damp cloth can be used to wipe dirt and debris from rubber seals.
  • Don’t be afraid to wash the carpet in the trunk.
  • If you have seat covers, remove them and wash accordingly.
When cleaning the interior, remember that this is a task which is only completed once a year, so be sure to give the task 100% of your time and focus.

Battery

If your battery stops working then your car won’t start. It’s as simple as that. Despite this, many motorists neglect their batteries. This spring, open the hood of your car and check the condition of your battery. A simple visual check is all that’s needed to see if everything is okay or if action is needed, such as cleaning away buildup or debris on the cables or the terminals. If your battery looks like it’s seen better days, it's worth considering replacing it before it becomes a necessity.

All Engines Can Benefit from a Synthetic Oil Change in Fort Worth, TX

In addition to cleaning your car this spring, don’t hesitate to include the other vehicles and engines in your garage, such as your boat, jet ski, or even a lawnmower. Each of these engines can benefit from a synthetic oil change. To find out more or to place an order, speak with a friendly expert at Ace Hi Oil today by calling (888) 459-9958.
