Spring break used to be all about vacations. Now, as an adult, it’s about giving your home a spring clean. This year, why not include our vehicle on your checklist?

The best way to keep your home looking clean and tidy is with regular maintenance and cleaning sessions. However, after a while, personal items and junk begin to clutter up your space until your regular cleaning sessions are barely keeping up. This is where a spring clean comes in, to give your family and your home a fresh start.

Your Vehicle Needs a Spring Clean Too

If you think about it, your vehicle also becomes cluttered, however, it likely doesn’t receive the same regular clean as your home. With this in mind, include your vehicles in this year’s spring clean, starting with these tips from TenEyck Distributing.

Start With Your Wheels and Tires

If you think about it, your wheels and tires are put through quite a bit of stress getting you from A to B through the rain, snow, dirt, and whatever other types of terrain your journey throws at you. This spring clean, give your tires some attention, keeping these points in mind:
  • Take your time and don’t rush the task.
  • Bring your car out into the sun to get a better view.
  • Adjust your tire pressure if necessary.
  • Inspect your wheels for cracks, lodged debris, and any other sign of damage.
  • Inspect your tires for cracks, chunks taken from your tread, bald spots, punctures, and lodged debris.
If you can see any problems, or potential problems, have your wheels and tires checked before driving on them any further.

Engine Oils, Lubricants, and Fluids

No matter how new your car is, the engine inside it relies on a range of fluids and lubricants to continue operating. Without these fluids, your engine performance would suffer until your engine eventually stopped working. For this task, make a list of all of the fluids your engine uses and mark them off as you check each one, keeping these points in mind:
  • Resist using cheap products and instead only use high-quality fluids.
  • Don’t just top up a fluid, flush it out and replace it.
  • Clean up any spills as they occur.
  • Once you have finished, keep the leftover containers in your trunk upright.

Time for Your Battery

Despite its small size, your battery is one of the most important parts of your engine and vehicle. So important that, if it stops working, your vehicle won’t even start. With this in mind, lift the hood of your car and inspect the condition of your battery. A visual inspection in good light is the easiest way to know if your battery needs attention or not. If you can see grime or dirt build up, a dry cloth can be used to wipe it away safely from the terminals and cables. If you can see corrosion or any other obvious sign that your battery isn’t going to last much longer, consider replacing it while you are cleaning your vehicle, instead of becoming stuck in the supermarket car park with a car that won’t start and a trunk full of melting groceries.

Air Filter

The role of your air filter is quite simple. Its job is to prevent pollutants and debris from entering your engine via your air intake. The cleaner the air which makes its way into your engine, the better your engine can perform. However, just like all filters, your air filter won’t last forever and will need to be replaced. But this isn’t a task which your mechanic needs to perform. Instead, this piece of maintenance can be easily performed by motorists in their driveway. Check online for a video tutorial or look through your owners manual for instructions. If the task seems daunting, don’t let it stop you. Not only is it great to become more involved in your vehicle maintenance, but replacing your air filter can also reduce your mechanic costs and improve your engine performance.
