Summertime Vehicle Preparation
There are several things you can do to improve the performance and safety of your vehicle. Spring rain and the summer heat can wreak havoc on a vehicle if you aren't properly prepared.
Windshield Wipers and Fluids:
It's always a good idea to check windshield wipers year round.
Moisture and dust can prevent blades from operating when needed. Make sure to check for worn rubber on the wiper blades and wash your vehicle regularly to prevent dusty buildup. Also, check the washer fluid reservoir to ensure there is plenty of fluid. (Bugs, dust and other build up on the windshield can pose a safety hazard as they block your view.)
Oil and Oil Filter:
Check your vehicle manual and ask your mechanic how often you should change your oil and oil filter and what type of oil to use for your vehicle. In order for your vehicle to perform optimally based upon your vehicle use, check with your mechanic to find out ways to enhance your vehicle performance. Summertime heat usually means less rain and increased dusts in the air. Keep your filter from clogging by checkingit regularly.
Have your mechanic check the level, condition and concentration of your coolant fluids to prevent vehicle overheating. Belts, hoses and clamps should also be checked to ensure there is no damage preventing the coolant system from working properly.
Other Important Vehicle Components:
Air and fuel filter
Brake fluid/brake pads and shoes
Power steering fluid
Tires - Check tread and sidewalls for any nicks, nails or unusual wear.
