5 Spring Car Tips from The Thompson Organization
winter has been brutal, especially on your vehicle, but there is light at the
end of tunnel, spring is almost here! And if you have been waiting to service
your vehicle, Thompson is here to help. With warmer weather comes more weekend
getaways and you want to be sure your car is ready for the upcoming spring
The experts at Thompson want to assure you
will be ready for whatever road you choose to take.
Here are a few tips to help you get on your way:
1) Check your tire pressure: Temperatures
below 32° reduce tire pressure by at least 1 P.S.I. Check the inside of your
car door or glove box to find out what the proper air pressure should be for
your vehicle. If your tires are below the manufacturer recommended pressure,
your tires exert more force and decreases your fuel economy. Do not forget to
check your spare and ensure it is properly inflated.
2) Check wiper blades: Winter can be harsh on
your wipers. The rubber can crack and split because of ice, snow, rain and just
plain overuse. Even if you do not see any cracks or splits, your wipers may
become streaky and thus increasing your chance of an accident.
3) Check belts and hoses: Cold winter weather can wreak havoc
on your belts and hoses. Make sure you inspect and replace any that are worn,
cracked, blistered, brittle or too soft. Belts and hoses older than five years,
even if they look intact, may need to be replaced.
4) Wash your car: This may sound like a no brainier, but a simple car wash can
help increase the life of your car and help reduce the likelihood of having a
big repair. Road salt and brine are great for melting snow, but they can take a
major toll on your cars undercarriage and paint. If you do not have a lot of
time to wash the vehicle completely, washing the undercarriage will wash away
any salt that may possibly rust your exhaust or fuel lines.
5) Check battery and connections: Cold weather can decrease your battery's power by up to 60% and increase the chance of getting stranded. Make sure to have your battery connections checked for signs of corrosion - this could be a sign of a bad battery and can lead to poor performance. A quick check by our technicians can guarantee that your battery is working properly.
