Oil

Regular oil changes are a necessity for every vehicle with an engine. Changing your Ford’s oil every season will maximize the engine’s performance and fuel economy for years to come. Check the owner’s manual to determine how often your vehicle needs an oil change. Typically, it’s a good idea to change the oil as the seasons and weather shift.

Wiper Blades

Snow and ice can shred the rubber on windshield wipers, rendering them ineffective and even counter-intuitive. Replacing your Ford’s windshield wipers is cheap compared to most repairs and seasonal maintenance, and it’s something you should be doing about every six months or so. New wiper blades help keep the windshield clear during heavy spring rains, maximizing your visibility and improving safety. At the same time, you’ll want to make sure you have an adequate amount of windshield wiper fluid.

Tires

Cold weather can do a number on your tires. Air pressure will fall as the temperature lowers, and it will rise as the weather warms up. As a result, spring is a great time to check the tires and make sure the pressure is at the manufacturer-recommended level. Inspect your tire tread to ensure they are wearing evenly and keep an eye out for any abnormalities.

For all your spring vehicle maintenance needs, stop into Oliver Ford.
