With temperatures rising and days getting longer, it's easy to see that spring is in full swing. One of the best parts of perfect spring days is enjoying a drive through the countryside around Loris with your windows rolled down. Before you hit the road, though, we at Conway Chrysler Dodge Jeep Inc. recommend that you bring your vehicle in for some spring service.

What's Involved?

In a way, you can kind of see spring service as "dusting the cobwebs" that winter has left behind, in much the same way that spring cleaning gets rid of the cobwebs in your home in Myrtle Beach. Spring makes a great time for an oil change, tire rotation, new wiper blades, and a top-off of all your fluids.

Additionally, now is a great time to ensure that your air conditioner is in tip-top shape before the weather in Socastee really heats up. This allows you to be prepared for the summer heat so that you're not stuck in a hot car on a hot summer day. Along these lines, you'll want to make sure that all your vehicle's belts and hoses are tight and performing correctly, as these provide crucial power and coolant flow for your air conditioner.

If you're planning on taking a long trip and driving through the night, you'll also want to make sure your interior and exterior lighting is ready to go. You don't want to find out that you have a bulb burned out when you're trying to drive safely. Plus, exterior lights are crucial for those sudden summer downpours to ensure that other drivers can see you.

Another important maintenance item is to replace your engine air filter and your cabin air filter. If Loris faces a drought, you'll likely be driving in dusty conditions, and you want to be sure that your vehicle can filter out the dust to provide clean air for your vehicle.

Why It's Important

Though driving during sunny weather on dry roads isn't challenging, there are plenty of other road conditions that you'll face during the summer that are challenging. Therefore, you want to be sure that your vehicle can meet the demands that summer throws at you so that you arrive safely at your destinations. If you're in need of some spring maintenance, stop by our service center today.
