Is your car ready for summer? Summer’s heat, dust and traffic can do a number on your car. Regular maintenance can reduce your chances of a summer break down. Here are a few things to have checked:
Air Conditioning – If your AC system is not functioning 100% then the hot weather can make it fail completely. Also some newer model cars have a cabin air filter that filters the air coming into the cabin of your car.
Cooling system – Overheating is the leading cause of summer breakdowns. The level and condition of the fluid in the system should be checked periodically. If you have any concerns about your cooling system is very important to have it checked. Overheating your engine can be costly!
Tires – Your tires should be rotated every 5000 miles. Check your tire pressure at least once a month. And don’t forget to check the spare!
Battery – The only way to find out if your battery is weak is to have it tested with professional equipment.
