When you were younger, spring was all about vacations and the beach. Nowadays, it’s more about spring cleaning. This spring clean, keep your car in mind and show it some attention.

Regular home maintenance and cleaning are important to keeping your home looking its best. However, after a while, a combination of personal effects and junk begins to clutter your space until you can’t remember what your surfaces look like anymore and your regular cleaning is only just scratching the surface. This is where a spring clean comes in to give your home and your family a fresh start.

Include Your Vehicle in This Year’s Spring Clean

When you really think about it, your vehicle often receives the same level of clutter, only it likely doesn’t receive a regular clean or self-maintenance. This year, include your vehicle in your spring clean with these easy yet powerful maintenance tips from Tarheel Synthetics.

Your Battery

The best place to start is with potentially the most important part of your engine. After all, if your battery decides that it’s finished working then your engine is going to have a lot of trouble starting. Lifting up the hood of your car and giving your battery a visual inspection is enough for you to know if there is anything serious happening. More often than not, you will just need to wipe away grime or dirt build up with a dry cloth from the terminals and the cables. However, if you can see any type of damage such as a leak or corrosion, then now is probably a good time to replace your battery when your vehicle is in the driveway and not a supermarket car park.

Engine Oil, Fluids, and Lubricants

It doesn’t matter if your vehicle just rolled off the production line, the engine inside it requires a range of lubricants and oils in order to keep operating. Without these vital fluids, your engine would cease to operate. Use your owner’s manual to make a checklist of the oils and fluids your vehicle uses to mark off as you complete the task, keeping these points in mind:
  • Resist using cheap products and instead use high-quality products.
  • Don’t just top up a fluid, flush it out and replace it.
  • If you spill anything, be sure to clean it up.
  • Once you have finished, store what is left upright in your trunk.

Wheels

No matter what the weather or road conditions are, it’s your wheels and your tires which get you where you need to be, and without any complain. Despite their performance and role, motorists don’t often give their tires and wheels the attention they deserve. This spring clean, check your tires and consider these points:
  • Take your vehicle out into the sun for a better look.
  • Adjust the pressure in each tire if required.
  • Check your tires for cracks, bald spots, punctures, and lodged debris.
  • Check your wheels for cracks and lodged debris.
  • While you are there, why not check out your brakes?
Remember that this isn’t a task which you perform often, so don’t rush it.

Air Filter Replacement

Your air filter is an important part of your engine. It is responsible to preventing pollutants and debris from making its way into your air intake. And while it does its job without any problems, just like all filters, your air filter can become too clogged to function. While you likely leave the replacement of your air filter to your mechanic, this spring clean, consider replacing it yourself. While the task can seem intimidating, if you search online for a tutorial video you will see that it very much a task which all motorists can perform at home. Along with being a great way to become involved in your engine maintenance, replacing your own air filter both reduces your mechanic costs and improves your engine performance.

Give Your Vehicle a Synthetic Oil Change in Sanford

Performing the above tips is a great way to keep your vehicle in good shape and extend its lifespan, especially items like a synthetic oil change. Of course, if you have a boat, ATV, or even a lawnmower, speak with Tarheel Synthetics at (910) 964-5995 and find out how a synthetic oil change can also benefit these engines.
