Car Tune-Up Checklist

Hand Holding Tire Gauge to Tire


If you drive a Mercedes-Benz model, you need to make sure that you follow through with your Mercedes-Benz Service A* and Mercedes-Benz Service B* intervals, which are paramount to retaining residual value on your precious investment. These recommended service intervals are designed specifically to maintain your Mercedes-Benz model. If you drive another car, however, take a moment to explore our guide on how to tune up your car and what a car tune up really is. Remember that, while the Mercedes-Benz Durham service garage specialises in Mercedes-Benz models, we’re more than happy to keep models from different makes in tip-top shape as well, so if you need help with any of these services, don’t hesitate to reach out for a car tune-up near Oshawa.

1. Wash Your Car

This may not seem like one of the most vital tasks of a car tune up checklist, but regularly cleaning your vehicle belongs on any car tune up checklist. It’s important to wash off all the particles that will corrode your vehicle’s exterior, like salt and dirt.

2. Check Your Tires

Make sure your tires are in good shape. Cold air and ice can be especially hard on their treads, and low tread can increase your fuel economy and risk of a blow-out, while decreasing your traction and the accuracy of your handling. If you find that the tread on your tires is thick, but uneven, make sure to rotate them every 5,000 miles, as unevenly worn tires tend to wear out much more quickly.

3. Change Your Wiper Blades

Winter snows often damage the rubber on your windshield wipers. If you find that your wipers are streaking, you’ll want to inspect them. If they look beat-up, replace them. You’ll also probably want to top off your windshield wiper fluid.

4. Test Your Battery

Winter often drains your battery, so it’s important to get it tested if it’s been exposed to prolonged bouts of cold weather. Signs of a weak battery are dimming lights and a struggling starter.
