Springtime is upon us. The weather is warming up, flowers are blooming and the birds are chirping after a chilly Northern Delaware winter. Now is a great time to take care of some much needed automotive maintenance tasks. You may be ready to do more driving in the spring and summer, so it's smart to get your vehicle ready for the months ahead. Here are some tips from Fox Run Auto:
1. Take Care of the Basics
Of course, you should make sure your vehicle's basic needs are taken care of first. Check the oil under your hood. If the level is low or the oil is dark and dirty, you are probably overdue for an oil change. You may also want to check your transmission fluid and radiator coolant while you are at it. It may be time to replace your windshield wipers, tires or anything else that is getting worn out after the winter season.
2. Get a Full Vehicle Inspection
Now is the opportune time for a vehicle "physical." Bring it to a trusted mechanic for diagnostic testing and a full bumper-to-bumper inspection. At Fox Run Auto, we can check many key systems and components. We'll provide you with a detailed inspection report to let you know anything that may need maintenance or repairs. Examples may include:
- Wheel Alignment
- Automotive Fluids
- Fuel System Cleaning
- Exhaust/Emissions System
- AC System Tune-Up
- Engine Oil
3. Don't Put Off Necessary Repairs
If there is something wrong with your vehicle and more than just preventative maintenance is recommended, don't hold off on automotive repairs for too long. There's a good chance you can catch a problem early on and save yourself a lot of money and headaches down the road. Ignoring necessary repairs will just lead to bigger problems that will be more expensive to fix in the future. Fox Run Auto offers special financing programs and fair pricing to help you keep your car running its best all year long.
