Default Spring/Summer Preventative Maintenance.

Spring should be here by now. So now is the time to get our vehicles out of winter mode and into spring/summer mode. Throw out any and all ideas!

First one, get the studded tires off and the all season ones back on.

Snow storm and freezing rain last Friday and although the roads are dry this morning; tons of finely powered salt covering the road. As soon as a big rain washes clean the roads, heading to the self serve car wash and doing a major undercarriage spray in hopes of getting the salt off the brake lines, fuel lines, and other hidden areas....

With all that drifting salt on the roadway, you know what it looks & smells like.
Chances are over the winter, your car has inhaled some of it too!
So clean out that airbox and drop in a new air filter.
Good time to replace the cabin air filter, if you have one as well.
