Beware The Ides Of March Here we are now in March! Many of us are more than eager to shake off the shackles of winter and welcome warmer and longer days. And, of course, to cruise in our Corvettes. But, as tempting as that thought is, there are a lot of things to check on your Corvette before jumping in and turning the key for the first time this year. Here’s a brief checklist of things to do before going on your maiden voyage of 2019: 1. Check tire pressure and condition of all four tires; 2. Inspect all belts and hoses, replacing where necessary; 3. Inspect spark plug wires and plug boots; 4. Check coolant level; 5. Check oil level and, if applicable, transmission fluid level 6. Check brake fluid level, power steering fluid level 7. Remove any desiccants from the engine bay, trunk and interior 8. Check battery cables and charge level 9. Check fuel level and gauges for proper operation 10. Check headlights, brake lights and directional signals After all of this is done, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to give the old girl a wash, tire treatment, and a waxing. But, hey, it’s understandable if you let the wash go until later, ‘cause you want to go for a ride now! So, go on – enjoy yourself!
