Spring is a Great Time for a Tune Up

Spring is a wonderful time for going outside, spending time with friends, and taking care of the environment. One of the biggest sources of pollution is a car. However, there are a number of things that can be done in order to make cars much more environmentally friendly. Simply taking your car in for a tune up can do these things.

One of the best ways to make your car more environmentally friendly is taking care of your car’s tires. The tires should be rotated so that the front tires are now on the back, and the left tires are now on the right. This has the benefit of making your tires last much longer, which means that they will not end up in a landfill. In addition, you will not have to shell out a large amount of money for new ones.

Rotating tires also means that they wear in an even pattern. This makes your car drive much easier, and also helps to make them have more traction. More traction prevents wheel spin, which improves your tire’s efficiency.

During a tune up, a technician will inflate your tires to the optimal pressure. Properly inflated tires will result in your car getting five to ten more miles per gallon.

Another thing to have done, during a spring tune up, is to have all of the fluids in your car replaced. This includes replacing the oil, transmission fluid, and the coolant in your car’s radiator. Replacing fluids is a great way to make your car last longer. It will also result in your car producing much less heat, which will result in getting even better gas mileage.

A professional auto shop knows how to dispose of used fluids in an environmentally responsible manner. This includes sending them to a place where they can be cleaned and recycled into new fluid.

During the winter months, your car probably spent a fair amount of time sliding around on the road. This probably caused the alignment to be off. Having your car realigned will allow you to drive in much more comfortably. It will also allow you to get even better gas mileage.
