As the heat of summer approaches, it’s important to ensure that your car is ready. From inspecting its exterior to checking components under the hood, here are some summer car maintenance tips.
Tires and wiper blades
Check the pressure of your car’s tires so that they are properly inflated. Having over- or underinflated tires can result in either not having enough traction or a blowout. While you’re checking the outside, see if the wiper blades need to be replaced. You never know when a summer shower will happen!
While most people think of checking a car’s battery in winter’s harsh temperatures, the extreme heat of summer can also damage this vehicle component. Check to see if your vehicle’s battery has a proper charge and, if not, contact us to get it replaced.
Along with getting a seasonal oil change, you’ll want to check the other fluid levels in your car. This includes the windshield wiper fluid, coolant, and transmission fluid. These are vital to keeping your vehicle in good working condition during the summer.
