Spring is on the horizon, which can give your car a much-deserved break from the bad weather. To ensure your car is ready to take on the spring roads, prepare it with these tips from Ace Hi Oil in Southlake.



How to Get Your Car Ready for Spring

As spring approaches, you may be dreading starting your car's seasonal maintenance. There really aren't that many tasks to tackle before spring arrives, so it's best just to get started. After all, doing this can save you time and money in the future by preventing car troubles. To get started on your maintenance tasks, use these tips.

Get Your Car Washed

As winter comes to a close, it's important to give your car a thorough wash. After dealing with winter weather, chances are your car's exterior will have plenty of corrosive substances left on its surfaces. You can wash the car yourself or take it to your local car wash, just be sure you are as thorough as possible so that you successfully remove any leftover grime that can negatively impact your paint job and other surfaces on your car's exterior. It's also a good idea to get the interior washed or cleaned. Chances are your shoes or coat dragged water, snow, or even road salts inside your car, which can also lead to damage. Even if your car looks dry on the inside, it's best to get it cleaned and get these substances removed before they cause damage to these areas.

Don't Forget the Underbody of Your Car

When you get your car washed, be sure special attention is paid to the underbody. Since the undercarriage is so close to the road, it often picks up corrosive substances from the road, ranging from rainwater to road salts. These will often cling to the underbody more than to any other part of the car, leaving them there for quite a while. Over time, these substances can cause corrosion, rust, and other damage that can be pricey to repair. Before this happens, thoroughly clean this area. Be careful while doing it and be sure to get as much of the grime off as possible.

It's Time for an Oil Change

Your car's engine may have been asked to work through tough conditions all winter long, so now is a good time to give it an oil change. Remove the old oil which may no longer be able to keep your engine protected and running strong. If you were using a winter grade oil, now is a good time to go back to your usual oil. Keep in mind that you will have to give your car regular oil changes, so it's a great idea to get to know your oil and your car's needs so you're never left driving on old oil. Never skip an oil change since having clean oil is an easy way to extend your vehicle's life.

Get Your Tires Checked By a Professional

Driving on winter roads can lead to plenty of surprises. Not only will you be driving through snow, road salts, and mud, you may be surprised by potholes and other dangers hidden under road debris. Driving through these conditions can lead to all sorts of tire damage, big and small. Because of this, you'll want to take the time to inspect your tires and ensure they're still in good shape. Start by taking care of the tasks you can handle on your own. Check the tire pressure and fill your tires back up to their recommended level. Inspect the sidewalls for damage so you can be sure your tires are still safe to drive on. Don't forget to ensure the tire tread is still thick enough to grip the road and keep you safe. After that, you may need help from your mechanic to get your tires rotated and aligned. If you hit some potholes during the winter, your alignment may be off, leading to uneven wear. Realiging them can be a great option so that your tires wear evenly, which can actually extend their life.
