How to Prepare Your Car for Spring


ST. LOUIS, Miss. — Happy First Day of Spring! The sun is shining and the birds are chirping, and we can officially say goodbye to winter! In honor of the first official day of spring, we thought there is no better way to celebrate than provide you with some tips on How to Prepare Your Car for Spring!
Change your oil: It is recommended that you change your oil every 3,000 miles or 3 months to keep your car healthy! Motor oil keeps your engine clean and lubricated, and it is much cheaper to get an oil change than to get your engine replaced if things get messy.
Check your fluid levels: Which fluids need your attention? Well, your oil, transmission fluid, brake and power steering fluids, and coolant need to be checked and replenished, when necessary, at a minimum of once every couple of months. Doing so can save you money in the long run!

Assess your tires:
 Get the most out of your tires by keeping them in good shape! It really is that simple. Be sure to rotate and balance your tires to ensure even tread wear, and keep your tires properly inflated! We would suggest keeping a tire pressure gauge in your car so you can self-assess your tires at anytime.
Check your belts: Your vehicle’s belts might be weakened by the cold weather we’ve encountered this winter, and can cause them to snap or break. Since spring has finally arrived, this is the perfect time to bring your car into Don Brown Chevrolet for a check-up! One of our trusty mechanics will be ready to inspect the health of your vehicle’s belts to ensure your safety on the road.
Check your windshield wiper blades: Windshield wiper blades are our saviors on rainy days. As we know, spring usually has some “April Showers” in store for us! After a brutal winter, it would be a good idea to replace your wiper blades for a fresh set.
Wash your car: After a long, dreadful winter, it is very likely that your car is covered in dirt, grime, and salt. Bring back its sparkle by giving it a full wash, inside and out! Be sure to flush out the undercarriage of your vehicle as well. Salt and grime has more than likely built up over the winter, so wash it away before it starts to rust.
