Take Care of Fluids and Filters
Your car uses various fluids and filters to stay in top shape and deliver optimum performance. We’re not asking you to change the engine oil yourself, but you can check the oil level to make sure there’s no leak. Do the same with coolant. And while you’re at it, ensure there’s plenty of windshield washer fluid in the tank, because the roads can get quite dirty during spring.
Another easy bit of car maintenance is inspecting and cleaning the engine air filter with a vacuum or water (if you opt for the latter, make sure the filter is completely dry before you put it back in place). If it’s too dirty or clogged, a replacement is in order.
