De-Winterize Your Vehicle

Posted at Tue, May 30, 2017 10:30 AM

Finally! You and your vehicle have made it through the winter! The change of season is a great time to make sure your ride is ready for the warmer months ahead. Here are some tips from the service pros at Tim’s Truck Capital & Auto Sales in Epsom, NH. While many of these tips are things you can do, we’re always ready to help you get your vehicle ready for summer.

Check Tire Pressure
Adequate tire pressure is critical in maximizing handling and traction, while minimizing wear and tear. In winter, you need to add more air while in warmer temperatures, tire pressure increases, so you may have to let some air out of the your tires. Remember to check your tire pressure regularly.

Change Oil and Viscosity
It’s always a good idea to change your oil regularly, not only at specific mileage intervals, but also after significant wear on your car such as that from a long road trip or a harsh winter, both of which can be hard on your engine. Check your owner’s manual or come to Tim’s Truck Capital for advice.

Get an Alignment and Wheel Balance
When you get your oil changed for the first time after winter, it’s a good idea to get an alignment and balance check. Potholes that result from freezing and thawing can wreak havoc on your tires. Your tires will last longer if properly balanced and aligned.

Do a Thorough Wash and Wax
A thorough wash and wax after winter removes salt and other chemicals used to manage icy conditions. Make sure to get the undercarriage washed as well. Waxing your car helps preserve paint and prevents premature corrosion and fading.

Check Your Wiper Blades
Ice and salt can do a number on the rubber edges of your blades. An easy way to check for damage is to test them after wetting your own windshield. Make sure the blades make full contact with the glass of the windshield and that all surfaces they slide across are being properly dried as you intend them to.
