Despite the last few days of cold, spring is right around the corner. That means that we are about to start spring cleaning and packing away all our winter coats and blankets.
It also means that we need to make sure our cars are ready for spring. We’ll show you how.
- Check your tyres
- All-season tyres stiffen in cold temperature, which could cause cracks and other damage. You can take your car to any auto service retailer for a tyre inspection.
- While you’re there, you can have them rotate your tyres and check the tyre pressure for you. Of course, when you take your car for a service at CMH Honda Auto Pinetown we’ll do this for you at no cost.
- Check your wiper blades
- The average life expectancy of a wiper blade is six months, and since the blade is used to wipe away dirt and debris to give the driver an unobstructed view of the road, it is imperative that your wiper blades are not dried out and make full contact with the windshield.
- While you’re at it, you might as well check and top up your windshield wiper fluid.
- Check your car’s brakes
- Even if you don’t think the brakes need to be checked, it can’t hurt to play it safe. Any grinding noise or shudder when applying the brakes should immediately be looked at by your nearest service centre.
- Change the oil and oil filter
- Some car manufacturers recommend changing to a heavyweight oil in warmer temperatures. It is also recommended that you change your oil filter every time you change the oil, since it’s obvious that an old filter won’t keep new oil clean.
- Check your owner’s manual for the right oil for your car.
- Clean the underbody
- We all clean and wax our cars right before spring to have it looking its absolute best, but we forget about the underbody. Spray it down or take it to an automatic car was to get all the salt build up removed from the undercarriage.
- Flush and fill your cooling system
- The normal recommendation for flushing your car’s cooling system is once every two years. And by simply draining the radiator, you are not doing enough.
- You need to flush the system with a radiator flush product that will remove stubborn dirt and grease and the refill it with coolant mixed accordingly.
- Check your air conditioner
- A good tip to follow when it comes to your air conditioner is to let it run for about 15 minutes once a month. This ensures that it remains active and also helps you ensure that you will are kept cool during the blazing hot summer days that are coming.
- Check the battery and spark plugs
- Dirty spark plugs and battery terminals can cause misfiring (which wastes fuel) and leave you stranded with a car that won’t start.
- If the battery and spark plugs are more than two years old and you’re planning on doing a long trip – it is recommended that you replace both the battery and spark plugs before your departure.
- Change your air filter
- A dirty air filter can cause an unpleasant odour in the cabin and even affect the performance of your car.
- Clean the cabin
- Don’t forget to give the inside of your car a proper spring cleaning too to get rid of forgotten wrappers n every nook and cranny.
These tips are only the tip of the iceberg and there are many more that you can follow to get your car ready for warmer weather, but it should give you a place to start.

- EMERGENCY TRIANGLE
- One of the leading causes of serious accidents are stationary vehicles which are hit by other vehicles travelling at high speeds.
- If your car is stationary anywhere on a public road, switch your hazard lights on immediately and then place the emergency triangle on the roadway at least 45m from the back of your vehicle, facing traffic approaching from the rear. This will ensure that your car is visible to other road users and allow them enough time to slow down.
- This is a factor that many drivers don’t even consider when it comes to your car emergency kit, but it could mean the difference between life or death.
- Ensure that you regularly check the expiry date on your fire extinguisher. Fire spreads quickly, and in most cases the fire department simply can’t get to the scene fast enough.
- Although many vehicles are fitted with a standard first aid kit, which could be very handy, it is a good idea to spruce it up a little by adding a few additional items.
- Keep critical medicines in the car for any family member with a serious medical condition. Because some medicines cannot be stored in hot temperatures, look for alternatives that you could use in order to buy you some time in case of an emergency.
- Yes, you could charge your phone in the car – but what do you do when you get stuck on the side of the road with an unresponsive car AND a dead cell phone?
- Keep a fully charged power bank in your car for emergency situations like this, the possibility of you ever needing it might be really odd, but you’ll be extremely grateful when the time comes and you need it.
- Getting stuck on the side of the road is not an episode of “Survivor”. But if you do a quick survey amongst your colleagues or friends, you are likely to hear a story or two about how one of them got stuck on the side of the road for hours.
- An accident or overturned truck could delay you for hours. If you have children with you, it’s even more important to keep them hydrated while you wait for help or for an accident scene to be cleared.
- Keep a decent flash light in your car at all times and regularly check the batteries. It could help save your life in case of an accident by helping you check for serious injuries, find your cell phone or your first aid kit. It could also help flag down passing vehicles or identify your location if the car has left the road during the accident.
- If you’re involved in an accident, the odds of first responders being able to access your phone seems unlikely, and they will revert to checking your emergency kit for details. It’s simply extra insurance.
- Even a brand-new car can suffer from a flat battery and it is therefore a good idea to keep a pair of jumper cables in your car.
- Not only is a flat tyre frustrating, but if you get stuck on the wrong road (or a busy one), it could be extremely dangerous. Most tyre repair kits are a quick fix that will at least allow you to drive to the nearest service station.

- Change your oil
- Although this is something that needs to be done when needed, it’s especially important during winter months. You may even need to change the type of oil you use altogether. Your owner’s manual will give you clarity on which viscosity you should be using during colder temperatures. Winter generally requires a thinner oil.
- Check the ratio on your engine coolant (antifreeze)
- A ratio of 50/50 is acceptable during normal weather conditions but should be amended to 60/40 in winter.
- Check your battery
- There’s nothing more frustrating than being stuck with a dead battery, in colder temperatures your engine needs more current from the battery in order to start.
- As a first step, make sure you have enough charge left in your battery. Switch on the headlights before you start your engine. Then turn the engine on – if the lights get brighter, it could be an indication that your battery is dying.
- You can also test the actual voltage with a voltmeter or take your car to a mechanic to test it for you.
- Check the battery cables for any cracks or brakes and finally ask a mechanic to check the battery fluid for you and top it up if needed.
- Change your washer fluid and windshield wipers
- Get yourself a washer fluid with antifreeze solution. Windshield wipers should be replaced every 6 – 12 months depending on the amount of exposure to harsh weather conditions they receive. Rather play it safe by replacing your windshield wipers if they start looking worn down.
- Get a basic service
- The service interval for most Honda vehicles (and many other brands) are every 15,000km. If your scheduled service interval is likely to fall in the middle of winter, you might want to take it in a little early. At a Honda workshop we will check your belts and hoses, ignition, brakes, wiring, spark plugs and all filters as part of a basic service.
- Check your defroster and heater
- If you want to remain safe on the road this winter, you need your defroster and heater to work properly. Both of which can be costly to repair. One tip to save you money on an expensive defroster repair is to check for any air leaks around the doors and windows. These leaks can allow in extra moisture which will make it seem like you have a broken defroster.
- Check your tyres.
- Check the tread for wear and tear and check your owner’s manual to see what the correct air pressure in your tyres should be during winter months.
- Keep your fuel tank filled
- We can all agree that keeping your fuel tank filled is always a good idea, but there’s actually a pretty good reason behind why this is important during the winter.
- Apparently, cold weather can cause condensation to form in an empty or near empty fuel tank. The water can drip down into the fuel and travel to the bottom where it can then travel into your fuel lines. In winter, it can freeze in your fuel lines and block the flow of fuel to your engine.
- Get your car detailed
- This is not necessary, but if you’re worried about your car’s paint job it’s a good idea. It’s also a good idea to get a car wax that coats the body panels, which will help protect the paint from snow and salt damage.
- Beef up your car emergency kits
- If you don’t already have a car emergency kit – now is the time to get one. If you do have one, then now is the time to ensure it’s ready for any emergency winter could bring your way.
