Summer Auto Care

Summer is finally here! It’s the season of summer activities including pool days, beach trips, outdoor grilling, garden parties, and road trips. The warmer temperature means you will need to care for your vehicle much like you would care for your skin. You wouldn’t leave the house without sunscreen, would you? The same rules apply. Let’s explore 5 tips for proper auto care this summer.

Tip #1

Get your oil and oil filter changed. Chances are your last oil change was a while ago. Now is the time to make sure you have clean oil to keep your engine healthy!

Tip #2

Check your fluid levels. This is important because as the seasons change, transmission fluid, power steering fluid, coolant, and even windshield wiper fluid can evaporate. Just make sure everything is at a good level before taking the car out for a drive.

Tip #3

Check your tire pressure. You’re a driver, you know how important your tires are. If they are showing serious signs of wear, leaking or missing any air, it’s time to address these issues.

Tip #4

Get your brakes and battery inspected. Functioning brakes can mean life or death. It’s important to make sure they’re working at full capacity. Similarly, an old battery can leave you stranded. Let’s make sure everything is in tip-top shape!

Tip #5

Check your windshield. Seasonal changes can do a number on your windshield. Not to mention, the elements may have caused some damage. Have your windshield properly inspected for any cracks or chips that need immediate attention.
