Spring is nearly here in San Diego! While the temperature shifts are not drastic between each season, there are some changes you should make with your car. We thought it would be useful to lay out all the car maintenance items you should watch out for this season.
Battery Performance -
A typical car battery can last anywhere between 3-5 months depending on the quality, the environment it runs in, how well you take care of it, etc. Feel free to drop by our auto repair shop for a battery test. This will allow you to gauge how long before you need to replace it.
Oil Level & Quality -
As we all know, motor oil is the most important item for engine performance. Before the summertime begins, it is great to check to see your oil level and condition. Otherwise, it doesn't hurt to come in for an oil change.
Tire Condition -
There are two things that you should check regularly when it comes to your vehicle's tires: pressure and tread depth. To ensure they wear evenly, make sure that your tires' pressure matches the factory-recommended psi. Furthermore, you can measure your tread depth using the penny test. If you fail the test or your tires measure to be less than 2/32", you need to replace your tires ASAP!
