Getting ready for a summer vacation or road trip can be stressful with planning. Make sure to take some of the worry away by having your vehicle inspected on a regular basis. This will help ensure that the parts are working as they should be, and it can drive safely. In the summer, you will want to make sure that the air conditioner is at top performance. If you notice the interior of the vehicle is not cool, schedule an appointment with us so we can check the air conditioner. You will also want to make sure that the refrigerant is efficient as well.

 

 

Coolant Care for your vehicle

 

Remember that the coolant should be inspected as well. Doing so will help prevent the vehicle from overheating as you drive it. If you are in stop and go traffic, the temperature may become warmer for the vehicle. When this occurs, you will want to shut off the air conditioner as soon as you can. Make sure to open the windows so your interior can stay as comfortable as possible. Also watch to see if the gauge gets into the red of the thermostat. If this happens, turn off the vehicle as soon as you can safely do so. Ignoring it can increase the chance that the engine overheats.

Summer Inspections

Also remember that your vehicle should be inspected for proper condition of the tires and how they are aligned. When the tires are in good condition, you can have a smoother ride when you drive your vehicle. If the vehicle does not travel well, it is recommended to bring your vehicle in as soon as possible so we can inspect it. This will also help the vehicle to be safe and reliable this summer as you drive it. Also remember to contact us if you notice any issues.
