When the Groundhogs Come Out, Time for Some Chevy Spring Cleaning

It’s just a matter of time before the humble groundhog comes out of its burrow. Rumor has it that when the groundhog comes out of its home on a cloudy day, spring may start a bit earlier for the year. Whether the groundhog is accurate in predicting the onset of a season or not, spring is just around the corner and your car needs some serious prep time.

There’s nothing like your car fresh from the carwash, inspected from engine to trunk and spruced up and ready to go, to start the first day of spring. It just goes to show that the term “spring cleaning” doesn’t only refer to your Ontario home. Just like winter, there is also a checklist of the things you have to do to prep your car for springtime. Here are some helpful tips to give your car that fresh, spring scent.

Wash your car: If you’re asking for a good reason to remove all that grime on your car, take it from the Mythbusters. The team tested both dirty and clean cars for fuel efficiency to test the myth that the former was the avid fuel saver. It turns out it was the other way around—and the reason is fairly apparent.

All that dirt in your car messes up with the natural flow of air, creating more drag that serves to eat more fuel. Tom Wagner, Jr., the author of this theory, even tried it on his car and got the same results as the Mythbusters. It will only take a few minutes to give your car a well-deserved bath so really, there’s not much of an excuse not to.

Tune your car: The inside of your car also has to be checked to make sure that it is ready not only for spring but also for summer. It’s common knowledge that the engine tends to get hot, add to that the heat from the sun on summer months and it’s double the trouble. Car experts advise having the same kind of coolant in your Chevrolet Pickering residents have. If it cannot withstand the blazing heat, it can cost you your wallet in repairs.

In addition, don’t forget to have your Chevy Oshawa has to offer checked for worn-out parts and engine components. Continued use of worn-out parts under extreme heat can affect your car’s performance and take its toll on your budget. Spark plugs, washers and other parts have to be changed on a periodic basis.
