Just got an e-mail adfrom AutoZone with some good tip I thought I'd share...

Quote:
since spring is just around the corner, here'* a quick 10-point spring check up to revitalize your car after the grit and grime of winter.

1. Change your oil and oil filter (ideally every three months or 3,000 miles).
2. If it’* been more than two years or 24,000 miles since you've changed your automatic transmission fluid and filter, change that now, too.
3. If you have a front-wheel drive vehicle, check the condition of the CV boots. If torn or cracked, replacing them now could save you hundreds of dollars in repairs.
4. Make sure your tires are properly inflated, and rotate your tires if it’* been six months since you last did so.
5. Make sure your shocks and struts are working properly.
6. Check all lights and bulbs—headlights, brake and tail lights, turn signals, license plate bulbs, etc.
7. If your windshield wipers are streaking and smearing, replace them.
9. Replace your air filter and "forgotten filters"—the fuel filter, the PCV valve and the breather filter.
9. Add a bottle of fuel system cleaner at your next fill-up.
10. Top off all fluid levels, including windshield washer fluid, brake fluid, power steering fluid and antifreeze. Don't forget to check all cells of your battery and top them off with distilled water.
Just plain good advice, huh?
