Summer Vehicle Maintenance Tips

If you want your vehicle to last as long as possible, you need to take good care of it. At C&S Car Company, we understand that the weather is warming up outside, and there are several important tasks that you need to do to make sure that your vehicle runs as well as possible for as long as it can. Do not forget that you can always reach out to our service center when it is time for your next maintenance check.

1. Protect the Interior

When the sun is high in the sky and shining brightly, you need to make sure that you protect the interior. The UV rays can cause a tremendous amount of damage to the interior of your vehicle, so make sure you deploy a sunshade when you get out of your car. That way, you can reflect the raise away from your vehicle, prevent the interior from fading, and ensure you protect not only the exterior but the interior as well.

2. Check the Windshield Wipers

Do not forget that you need to get your windshield wipers inspected as well. During the summer, it tends to rain a lot more often, and in addition to making it difficult to maintain traction on the road, it can cause your windshield wipers to wear out when they are turned on so often. From time to time, you need to inspect your windshield wipers, and our team is here to help you. Our experts can help you find the right windshield wipers for your vehicle, and we can also help you deploy fluid that will cause the rain to bead up, making it easier for you to see.

3. Inspect the Engine and Keep it Cool

When the temperatures get hot outside, it can place a significant amount of stress on your engine. It is much easier for your engine to overheat during the summer so make sure you rely on our team to perform routine maintenance. Then, do not forget that you need to keep the engine cool as well. You must make sure that you use the recommended type of fluid, and make sure you do not stress your engine more than you must. By staying up to date on inspections, you can also reduce the chances of something going wrong down the road. 

4. Check Your Tire Pressure

It can be annoying when the tire pressure light is on, but when the temperature gets hot outside, it can cause your tire pressure to increase. While this might not necessarily cause the light to come on, it can cause your tires to wear down more quickly. Make sure you take a close look at your tread depth by scheduling an appointment with our service center, and make sure your tires are not overinflated or underinflated. We are here to help you get as many miles out of your tires as you can. 

5. Check Your Fluid Levels

When the temperature goes up outside, your fluids can evaporate more quickly than usual. There are a lot of fluids that come together to provide you with a reliable vehicle, and that includes your transmission fluid, brake fluid, and coolant. During the summer months, you need to make sure these fluid levels are checked, and you must maintain them in accordance with the recommendation set by the manufacturer. Our service center can help you check your fluid levels, and we will make sure that your car runs appropriately during the heat of the summer.
