Arlington Heights, IL (PRWEB) June 05, 2014
Chicago’s 2013-2014 meteorological winter had the third highest snowfall on record and 26 days of sub-zero temperatures. Now that the mercury is rising, Wheeling Auto Center reminds drivers to inspect their vehicles inside and out to prepare for the nicer driving days ahead.
“The recent winter took a toll on people and their vehicles,” says Wheeling Auto Center owner Dave Becker. “Most things are easy for anyone to inspect, and a qualified auto technician can help with the rest,” he adds.
Wash The Exterior
Salt and winter road chemicals can cause rust and corrosion. Remove them thoroughly, paying special attention to the underbody.
Clean Car Mats
Vacuuming salt, mud and dirt helps maintain good condition.
Replace Wiper Blades
Spring is the rainiest season, so make sure your wipers work properly. Change blades to ensure safety during seasonal showers.
Check Tire Pressure
As temperatures fluctuate, tires expand and deflate. Roads also develop potholes. Use a tire gauge to ensure proper inflation, or ask a certified professional to check them for proper inflation, and wear and tear.
Make an appointment for a qualified mechanic to perform a full vehicle inspection, paying special attention to belts, brakes, hoses and suspension. A reputable shop will also inspect ignition parts, lights, exhaust and steering systems, and check for leaks.
