Maintaining your tires is perhaps the single, most important factor to improve the mileage and performance of your vehicle. By simply enlisting monthly inspections of your tires, you will get the best performance and overall safety from your vehicle! The first item on your checklist would be to ensure you have proper inflation in your tires. Proper tire inflation improves vehicle safety, performance and fuel economy.

Once you have new tires on your car, truck or SUV, you’ll want to check tire pressure once a month and top them off with air if needed. From there, depending on the tires and vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations, you’ll want to have your tires rotated and balanced every 5,000-6,000 miles.

Check Out These Spring Cleaning Tips for Your Car from Murphy Ford in Baldwin, Wisconsin!

Spring cleaning your car is something that should be done to ensure your vehicle’s performance and efficiency is where it should be! After a harsh winter, elements such as sand and salt that were used to deice the roads are bad for your undercarriage and should be cleaned off! Our team at Murphy Ford also recommends just giving your vehicle a good cleaning. Vacuum your interior from the top down, starting with the seats and ending with the floor boards. Moreover, run some fuel-system cleaner through your gas tank to clean your engine components.

Finally, we recommend you check your tread depth on your tires and also check your tire pressure. The fluctuating temperatures between winter and spring cause your tires to lose their proper air pressure. As always, our service and parts department at Murphy Ford in Chester, PA is available to serve your automotive needs!
