Beat the Heat – Ensuring Your Car is ready for Summer
For each season of the year different measures are required to prevent damage to your vehicle. These preemptive steps can potentially save you thousands and are vital in many parts of the country where weather patterns can often be extreme. It is important to ensure certain parts of your vehicle are properly maintained so as to avoid issues that may occur in the future from weather conditions. In this article we will discuss what important steps you can take to ensure your car is prepared to withstand the upcoming summer heat.
The State of Your Tires
Tires play a critical role in your vehicle’s operation; after all they keep your car on the ground and moving. Caring for tires is always essential, but even more so once the summer heat arrives. It is important to inspect your tires for uneven wear patterns and adequate tread. Be sure to inspect the pressure level in your tires frequently as well. If your tires require a mechanic’s skills then you can also include a tire rotation and a wheel alignment to the list of things that will keep your tires in working order during the summer heat.
The State of Your Motor Oil
Your motor oil is something that needs to be given a tune up at an automotive shop. This oil is essential for keeping the various parts of your engine lubricated and working properly. You should have your motor oil checked every three months or every 3,000 miles.
Level of Coolant
Ensuring your coolant levels are well maintained is an essential step in caring for your car during the summer heat. Without proper coolant levels your vehicle can be prone to overheating especially when temperatures rise outdoors. An experienced mechanic will be able to diagnose the source of any coolant leaks, with cracked hoses and radiator leaks being two of the most common culprits.
