Winter is on its way out, and spring will make its way to Pennsylvania soon enough. Check out these spring car maintenance tips that will get your car ready for warmer weather.
Check the tires
Any damage to your tires can be a major safety hazard, especially if the pressure is low. As the cold winter weather slithers away, spring will bring warmer weather and rains that create slick roadways. Make sure to check your tire pressure weekly to ensure it doesn’t get too low. If it does, you might not get the most traction possible.
While you check the tire pressure, take a moment to look at the tread too. If it’s wearing unevenly, it’s time to have the tires balanced. Keep an eye out for any bulges, bumps, or tears in the sides of the tire too.
Change the oil
