As we wrap up the winter, here are some spring weather tips and tricks from our experts on how to properly prepare your trucks for change in seasons:
1. Check your tires.
Winter weather can be harsh on tires, so it’s important to check your tires for any signs of wear and tear. Make sure to inspect the tire pressure and replace any damaged tires.
2. Check your fluids.
The change in temperature can affect the fluid levels in your truck. Check the levels of your engine oil, transmission fluid, brake fluid, and coolant to ensure they are at the appropriate levels.
3. Check your brakes.
Winter weather can also take a toll on your brakes. Check your brake pads, calipers, and rotors to ensure they are in good condition.
4. Check your windshield wipers.
Spring weather can bring rain and storms, so make sure your windshield wipers are in good condition and replace them if necessary.
5. Clean your truck.
Winter weather can leave behind salt and debris on your truck, so it’s important to clean your truck thoroughly, including the undercarriage, to prevent rust and corrosion.
6. Check your battery.
Cold weather can be hard on your battery, so check your battery’s charge and replace it if necessary.
7. Check your lights.
Spring weather can bring fog and rain, so make sure your headlights, taillights, and other lights are working properly.
8. Check your air conditioning.
As the weather starts to warm up, make sure your air conditioning is working properly so you can stay comfortable while driving.
Remember to always follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for maintaining your truck, and take your truck for a professional inspection if necessary.
