How to take care of a car in summer: Maintenance Tips

Automobile mechanics recommends you to focus on 5 key areas of their cars to be prepared for high temperatures:

1. Cars need fluids during extreme heat

Engine fluids are essential to keep a vehicle running smo othly. Most fluids not only lubricate, they also serve as coolants by helping carry heat away from critical components. When fluid levels are low, this cooling effect is reduced,and the possibility of overheating increases. Promptly have your vehicle inspected and repaired as necessary. Failure to do so could lead to additional repairs or an unplanned breakdown.

2. Keep your engine cool

Automobile engines work extra hard in the summer, and it is the cooling system’s job to protect the engine from  overheating.

Without proper cooling system maintenance, the odds of long term engine damage, and a summer time boil over, definitely increase. See the owner’s manual or maintenance booklet to determine the service interval appropriate for your vehicle.
