Spring Car Maintenance Tips

Toyota Service Mechanic

If you’re looking to make a change this spring, why not start with your car? Toyota of Mt. Pleasant has a great selection of car maintenance tips so you can have a spring cleaning both at home and for your car. Our vehicle maintenance tips don’t just come out of nowhere, however; they’ve got the backing of the quality service team here at Toyota of Mt. Pleasant and we’re ready to help you make the most of your vehicle maintenance experience.



1. Visit a Car Wash

Spring cleaning also applies to your car! Once the weather starts warming up, it’s time to undo some of the damage that winter can do to your car. First off, we suggest getting on the road in Texarkana, TX or Longview, TX and going to the local car wash to get the dirt, salt, and other stuff from winter off your car.

2. Check Your Tires

You can save money on gas by checking your car’s tire pressure regularly. It’s a very underrated part of vehicle maintenance that you can do at home. Check your owner’s manual to see what the proper tire inflation is for your model and just swing by the local gas station or car wash to get inflated properly. Don’t forget to check your tires for wear–put a penny in the tread of your tire and if you see the top of Abe Lincoln’s head, it’s time to switch.

3. Replace Wiper Blades and Wiper Fluid

Snow can damage and wear down your windshield wipers. If you see streaks on the glass, it’s time to replace your wiper blades. This is also a good time to top off your wiper fluid, and both of these can easily be done at home.

4. Check Your Battery

When winter is complete, you should look at your vehicle’s battery. The local auto parts store is likely to give you a free battery check where you can test if your battery is good to go in Paris, TX. If it’s getting weak, you can prevent future problems by replacing it before it stops working entirely.

5. Change Your Oil

This is the last thing you should check on once winter’s over. Spring cleaning by way of checking your oil ensures your car has a healthy life ahead of it. Check your owner’s manual to see how often you’ll need to go between oil changes. You should change the oil filter too and maybe consider a tire rotation.
