Keep your Car in Shape All Year with these Summer Car Maintenance Tips

July 26th, 2018 by

Unfortunately, routine car maintenance doesn’t take a summer vacation. As we approach the warmest days of the year, keep in mind these summer car maintenance tips and keep your vehicle in the best shape possible all year long.

 

Coolant System

You should monitor your car’s coolant fluid level throughout the summer, as it is crucial in preventing your car from overheating, which could lead to costly damages. Additionally, it’s a good idea to inspect the coolant hoses at the beginning of the summer to make sure there are no leaks.

 

Air-Conditioning

If your air-conditioning system isn’t working like it used to, don’t wait for the hottest day of the year to fix it. Recharging your car’s air-conditioning system is relatively cheap, easy to do, and will make your summer a lot more enjoyable.

 

Tires

Fluctuating temperatures can cause the air in your vehicle’s tires to expand and contract, leading to improper inflation. This summer, make a habit of monitoring your tire pressure as well as tire alignment and tread.

 

Wash and Wax

It might seem like a cosmetic concern, but washing and waxing your vehicle’s exterior is crucial in protecting your vehicle’s body against corrosive substances that can lead to things like rust damage. Driving a clean car just feels better, too!
