4 Essential Summer Car Care Tips

Your vehicle may need a tune-up before the summer weather arrives. Here are four summer car care tips to prepare your car for the season!

Get your oil and filter changed. This is very important, especially if your last oil change was months ago. The changing weather from cold to hot can put extra demands on your oil and filter, so make sure to bring your vehicle in for regular service before the hot temperatures arrive. 

Have your tire pressure checked. Another summer car care tip is to regularly check your tire pressure and tread. In warmer temperatures, the rubber on your tire may become compromise, leaving you with a leaking tire or potentially a blowout.

Get your brakes inspected. You need to rely on your brakes every time you get behind the wheel. Coming off the harsh weather conditions of winter, you will want to keep a close eye on the performance of your brakes, and address any issues right away.

Check your coolant levels. Throughout the summer your car works extra hard, and can exceed typical temperatures within the engine. The best way to make sure you do not end up stranded on the side of the road with an overheated engine is to keep an eye on the coolant levels and make sure you have enough. Here are simple directions to help you out!
