Seasonal Tips for Kia Car Care

Celebrate National Car Care Month with us by scheduling a tune-up or inspection for your Kia. As we enter the spring months, here are some helpful tips to help you keep your car running smoothly.

Kia Car Care Care Highlights

Check Oil and Fluids

When it comes to routine car maintenance, checking and changing your oil should be a top priority. Oil acts as a lubricant to protect the components of the engine as it runs. When oil levels are low or as it becomes dirty, the metal-on-metal contact will cause irreparable damage to your engine and take years off the life of your car. 

 

When you schedule your next oil change, request to have the other fluids checked as well. Brake, transmission, and steering fluids are vital to ensuring your Kia runs safely at peak performance for years to come. 

Inspect the Air Conditioning Components

While spring temperatures are moderate for now, don’t be caught off guard when the first heat wave arrives. Take a few minutes to inspect the components of your air conditioning to avoid an unnecessarily hot and humid commute later. 

 

Check to see that the HVAC system, compressor, and compressor belt look to be in working condition. If you see any visible damage or if you have no idea what to look for, call one of our technicians or schedule a service today. We’ll help you make sure your car is ready for the summer months ahead. 

Rotate Tires and Align Wheels

Common signs that your tires or wheels are in need of attention include a shaky steering wheel, and a tendency to drift while driving straight. Another sign it may be time to schedule service is if you can’t remember the last time you had your tires rotated.

 

Having your tires rotated and your wheels aligned will not only help your tires age equally over time, it will help maintain higher gas mileage as well.
