How to Take Care of Your Jeep during the SpringThere are a number of services you can perform on your Jeep vehicle, or have them performed by a professional mechanic at an auto repair shop. In this article, we will discuss what they are and why you should think about doing them before spring time or at the beginning of the spring.
You will need to check and see if your battery is mounted properly. If you cannot do it yourself, you can seek the help of a professional. Now, the more important thing that needs to be checked when it comes to the Jeep’s battery is if it is functioning properly. Winter weather could have had a negative impact on it so it is best that a professional takes a look at it. It is absolutely necessary to make sure that the battery is safe for use.
You would probably want to change the oil and filter. This is a simple and cheap maintenance that is extremely healthy for your Jeep, more specifically for the engine. Of course, before doing that, you can check your owner’s manual or ask a professional if the vehicle is due for an oil change.
Together with the engine oil, there are other fluids that your Jeep depends on - those will need to be changed as well, or at least topped off. These are the brake fluid, transmission fluid, coolant, windshield wiper fluid, and the power steering fluid.
As for the tires, the least you will need to do is check the tread depth and change the tires if needed. Also, as in any other season, keep track of how much the tires are inflated.
The windshield wiper blades of your Jeep might need to be changed as well after the ordeals that they have been through during the winter months. You can perform the change yourself - it’s not that difficult; just make sure that the new ones are the size that you need - otherwise, they simply won’t fit in.
Have a wonderful spring, and drive safely!
