How to Tune Your Car for Spring in 5 Easy Steps

Service Technician Working Under Vehicle


When it’s been a long winter in Oshkosh, and the spring is fast-approaching, you’re probably thinking of many things, like what local attractions you can visit or how you’re going to tackle cleaning out your garage. But one of the other important things to remember come springtime in the Ripon area is automotive maintenance. If you’re looking for information and tips on how to spring clean your car or how to tune your car for spring, then this guide is for you! Without further delay, here are five easy tips you can follow to get your vehicle ready for warmer weather.

1. Visit a Car Wash

Spring cleaning applies as much to your car as it does to your house. What are some signs your car needs a good cleaning? Well, because winter in Beaver Damn can be especially tough on a vehicle, there are plenty of things that may require you to spring clean your car, including:

  • Road salt buildup on carpeting or paint
  • Paint that needs washing and waxing
  • Sand, gravel, mud, or other debris in carpeting and upholstery
  • …And more!

2. Check Your Tires

Your vehicle’s tires can lose air pressure in cold temperatures. Simply by keeping the pressure regulated, your car is better able to distribute and conserve gasoline, making it more efficient on your Sheboygan area travels. TIt’s also important to ensure that your tires are rotated roughly every 5,000 miles or so. Check your tires for worn tread and make sure to replace your tires when the tread depth reaches 2/32 of an inch.

3. Replace Wiper Blades and Fluids

Snow and ice wreak havoc on various parts of a vehicle, especially the windshield wiper blades. So if your wipers have started streaking, it’s time to replace them. Usually, this is fix that even laypeople with little car knowledge can complete on their own! Of course, we here at the Holiday Automotive service center are always happy to help with your parts installation needs. 

4.Check Your Battery

Cold weather can deplete a battery quickly. If you feel that your car battery is getting weak, you can prevent future issues and starting problems by replacing it before it stops working altogether. That way, you won’t be left stranded with a dead battery on West Bend roads. 

5. Change Your Oil

Regular oil changes are an essential piece of routine car maintenance and a big part of the tune-up process. Some shops offer fluid top offs, tire checks, battery checks, and even tire rotation included their oil change prices, so you can be sure that you’re getting a spring tune-up done right.
