As winter shifts into spring, it's time for Burnt Hills drivers to consider getting a few maintenance items. If you want to cruise without worry, proper care is needed. But before you can be approached by the warm breeze again, here is what your car may need:
Oil and Filter Change
Some people like to opt for a thinner oil for the winter months and a more viscous one for the summer months. Even if you didn't do much driving during the winter, your oil might be going bad. You should check your oil level and condition and head over to the auto repair shop if things don't look up to standards.
Change Windshield Wiper Blades
The saying goes, "April Showers, Bring May Flowers." April sees the most rain in many parts of the US, and New York is no exception. Getting caught in a thunderstorm with dull or ineffective wiper blades isn't a sight to see. You should replace them every 6 to 12 months for good visibility.
Top Off Fluids
Your car has various fluids that can go low or rotten over time. Make sure your vehicle has all the juices it needs, including coolant, windshield washer fluid, brake fluid, and more.
Brakes are put in a lot of work to slow and stop your car. They go through use and abuse, so you should have them serviced for the spring. Our mechanics can change your brake pads and top off your fluid if needed.
We can also inspect your tires during your oil and filter change with us. After your car has undergone seasonal changes, your tire pressure may need some air. Properly inflated tires can boost your gas mileage and improve vehicle handling.
Our ASE-certified technicians can assist you in performing any of the spring maintenance services above to drive confidently throughout the spring. Please give us a call or visit Gil's Garage Inc. in Burnt Hills, NY!
