Keep Your Engine Cool
One of the most important things you can do when you’re working to keep your vehicle summer ready is to make sure that you keep your cooling system in the best possible condition. This includes making sure to properly flush your coolant to periodically to make sure that it’s properly recycled and as such keeps your system in the best possible condition. Our technicians can help you with this if you’re not certain about how to do it yourself!
Keep Your Tires Inflated
Driving on under-inflated tires is a quick way to lead them to overheat and eventually blowout, especially when road temperatures are extremely high. Make sure you check their pressure at least once a month, including the spare tires, to make sure they’re up to the manufacturer's specifications. If you need tires replaced, we’ll be more than willing to assist you!
Make Sure Fluids are at an Appropriate Level
As mentioned above, keeping your fluids relatively new and freshly flushed is a good idea for keeping your vehicle cool. In that same vein, you want to make sure that they are kept at a decent level. That doesn’t just mean coolant, either! That includes motor oil, transmission fluid, and other fluids. This will help keep your vehicle’s moving parts cool while on the road.
These are just a few recommended maintenance tips that we believe you should follow in order to keep your vehicle on the road! To learn more about summer maintenance, or to have your vehicle serviced, contact us today!
