At long last, winter is over, at least according to the calendar. And even if we do get one last spurt of old man winter, our dealers at Roesch Ford in Bensenville, IL, think that now is a good time to think about seasonal maintenance for your vehicle. One of the first things you should do is take your car or truck to a good local car wash for an underbody wash. Road salt throughout the winter has found its way to the nooks and crannies under your car; the caustic nature of road salt chemicals can be thwarted by a good undercarriage wash.
The next time you put gas in your vehicle, take time to check the tire pressure, which can change about 1 pound per square inch for every 10 degrees Fahrenheit change in the outdoor temperature. It’s getting warmer every day and the pressure inside your tires has surely changed. And if you have any doubt about the health of your tires, come to our local Ford dealership near Chicago and find the perfect new set of tires to carry you through the hot summer ahead.
You might also consider having us change your air filter to prevent winter’s grime and other impurities from weakening your car engine’s performance. Did you know that replacing a clogged filter can improve your gas mileage as much as 10 percent? You can save money now through the end of March when you schedule Ford service and request The Works, a service that includes a synthetic blend oil change, tire rotation and pressure check, brake inspection, multi-point inspection, fluid top-off, battery test, filter check, and belts and hoses check.
