The changing of seasons from winter to spring or summer to fall is a great time to get your vehicle all of the routine maintenance that it needs. This can include changing or topping off fluids, getting an oil change, having your tires inspected, and more.  

The colder weather can present challenges for your vehicle, so you'll want to make sure that it’s prepared with these car maintenance steps.

Check the Fluids

Your vehicle needs a variety of fluids to operate correctly. These include oil, coolant, and brake fluid.  The levels and quality of the fluid need to be checked occasionally as they can be depleted over time. 

Also, during use, contaminants can work their way into the fluid causing them to not be able to function in the way that they were meant to. This can leave the engine running hot or cause severe engine failure.
