We are C&S Car Company, and we have some of the top mechanics in the local area. We are properly licensed and insured, and we have what it takes to help you maximize the efficiency of your vehicle. With spring right around the corner, what are some of the most important maintenance tips that you need to remember? Take a look at some of the top points below, and give us a call to schedule an appointment with our service center.

1. Replace the Air Filters

First, you need to make sure that you replace your engine air filters. Your engine air filters are responsible for catching dust and debris before it infiltrates your engine, and there is a lot of pollen in the air during the spring. You need to make sure that you have a clean set of air filters to protect your engine, and we can help you replace your air filters if it is time to do so.

While you are at it, you need to replace your cabin air filters as well. Your cabin air filters make sure that everyone in your car can breathe clean air, and they are particularly important for people with chronic respiratory conditions. If you want to keep the pollen out of your car, schedule an appointment, and let us make sure your air filters are working appropriately.

2. Check the Windshield Wipers

There is a lot of rain during the spring as well, and you need to have a reliable set of windshield wipers. If you feel like your windshield wipers are squeaking more than usual, or if they are leaving streaks all over your windshield, it might be time for you to get a new set of windshield wipers. We can help you review your options, and we can replace your windshield wipers for you. Then, we might be able to apply a solution or finish that will make it easier for you to see what is happening in front of your vehicle even when it is raining outside.

3. Inspect Your Battery

The winter can place a significant amount of stress on your battery, and you do not want to be stuck somewhere with a car that will not start. We can inspect your battery for you and make sure that it can still hold the charge. You should expect your battery to last between 3 and 5 years, and if your battery is getting to the end of its lifespan, we can help you find a new one. When you schedule a maintenance appointment with our shop, we will make sure that your battery can still hold a charge and start your car.

4. Ensure Your Brakes Work Well

There are a lot of moving parts that have to work together to bring your car to a complete stop, and we can make sure that your brakes work appropriately. There is a chance that your brake fluid level might be a bit low, or your brake pads might be worn out. There is also a chance that we may need to replace your brake calipers, or your brake rotors might be stripped. We can take a look at the individual components of your brakes and replace them if they need to be fixed. We want to make sure that your brakes work appropriately when you leave our shop.
