Seasonal Maintenance Checklist

Fall – Get Ready for Tougher Weather

  • Get a transmission check.
  • It may be time for a brake check.
  • Check your power steering system.
  • Have your car’s exterior cleaned and waxed.
  • Replace your wiper blades.
  • Change the oil. We’ll say it again – clean oil is key to a happy car.

Winter – Tough on You. Tough on Your Car

  • Check on your battery. Batteries fail most often in the wintertime.
  • Keep your washer fluid full.
  • Change the oil. One more time.
  • Keep your emergency kit stocked.
  • Check your tires for wear.
  • Keep your fuel tank above half full if you can. More fuel is better during colder times.

Spring – Time to Shake Off Winter Wear

  • Check your spark plugs and wires.
  • Check on your caps. Gas caps, radiator cap, brake fluids and more.
  • Clean your headlights.
  • Rotate your tires. Remember to rotate your tires at least every 7,500 miles.
  • Also, check your tire pressure.
  • Clean the interior. Spring cleaning is for your car, too.
  • Check the air filter and cabin air filter.

Summer – Road Trip Season

  • Get a full cooling system checkup.
  • Check your tire pressure.
  • Change the oil.
  • Have your air conditioner checked.
  • Check your serpentine belt and other belts and hoses.
