When you were young, spring was all about a vacation. Now, it’s all about spring cleaning your home. This year, why not include your vehicle and improve your car’s performance?

Keeping your home clean and tidy through regular maintenance is great, however, after a while, junk and personal items can start to clutter your home until your regular clean is barely enough. This is the perfect reason for a spring clean, to give your home and your family a fresh start.

Your Vehicle Can Benefit from a Spring Clean

When you think about it, your vehicle experiences the same amount of clutter, only without the regular monthly cleans. This year, include your vehicle in your spring clean, starting with these tips from North American Wholesale.

Your Battery Is a Great Place to Start

When you think about it, your battery is one of the most important parts of your engine. After all, if it stops working then your car won’t start, leaving you stranded. For this reason, take some time to inspect the condition of your battery. A visual inspection is enough to know if your battery is in good condition or if it needs to be replaced. If you can see grime or dirt build-up, wipe it away safely with a dry clean cloth from the terminals and cables. This can often be enough to keep your battery in good condition. If you can see any other type of damage or signs that your battery will soon stop working, consider replacing it while your vehicle is in your driveway unneeded instead of when you have a trunk full of melting supermarket items.

Engine Lubricants, Oils, and Fluids

Even the most advanced engines in the newest cars require a range of oils and lubricants to operate. Without these vital fluids, your engine would stop operating. For this task, make a list of all of the fluids your vehicle uses and tick off each one as you make your way through the list. When performing this task, keep these points in mind:
  • Don’t use cheap products. Only use high-quality products in your vehicle.
  • Instead of just topping up a low fluid, flush it out and replace it entirely.
  • If you spill anything during your work, be sure to clean it up promptly.
  • When you have finished, store the remaining fluid bottles upright in your trunk or vehicle storage space.

Wheels and Tires

When you really think about it, your wheels and your tires are put through much more than we give them credit for. Whether it’s rain, snow, dirt, rocks, or any other terrain you need to drive on to get you from A to B, it’s your wheels and your tires which have you covered. For this reason, pay your wheels and tires some attention this spring clean, and keep these thoughts in mind:
  • You don’t perform the task often, so don’t rush it.
  • If you can, bring your car out into the light to help you identify problems easier.
  • Check the pressure in each tire is correct.
  • Inspect your tires for any cracks, bald spots, chunks removed from your tread, lodged debris, or punctures.
  • Inspect your wheels for cracks, lodged debris, or any other visible issues.
  • While you are close to them, check the condition of your brakes.
If you can see any problems with your tires or your wheels, it’s important that you have the problems seen to before you drive on them again.

Time for Your Air Filter

Your air filter filters out debris and pollutants from the air which is taken in as you drive. When it becomes too clogged, sufficient clean air can’t make its way in and your engine performance suffers. And while your air filter won’t last forever, replacing it doesn’t require a visit to your mechanic. In fact, this piece of engine maintenance is something which all motorists can perform themselves in their driveway. Your owner’s manual or an online tutorial can help you with your particular vehicle and filter, however, rest assured that the task is an easy one and one which all motorists can accomplish. In addition to being good to become involved in your own vehicle maintenance, it can greatly improve the performance of your vehicle.
