Spring-clean the cabin. It helps to get all your cleaning supplies ahead of time as you think of sprucing up the carpets, seat covers and mats. High powered shop vacs do the trick. A high quality dash cleaner strips off the dust and protects the surface from UV damage. We know what you’re thinking. We don’t read minds, but if spring cleaning your vehicle sets your teeth on edge, consider a local detailing service. They do such a great job for a minimal price.
Change the air filters. Air filters stop dust and debris from reaching the engine’s combustion chambers. Your cabin filter may need changing as well to ensure your air conditioning works properly through the summer months. If you’re getting a musty, old, swampy smell in your cabin, changing the filter may solve the problem.
A seasonal oil change is probably due at this time. It may seem like a small thing, but oil changes are one of the main tasks needed to keep your engine running efficiently. Don’t worry about changing types of motor oil, as most are now multi-viscosity and offer protection through a wider range of temperatures all year round.
