So read on and learn how to prevent those pesky car problems from ruining your summer!

One of the most important things you can do for your car in the summer is to keep it cool. When the mercury rises, so does the temperature under your hood. Make sure you check your coolant levels often and top off as needed. You should also get your radiator flushed and replaced every few years to prevent rust and corrosion.

Another summer car care tip is to change your oil more frequently. The heat can break down your oil and make it less effective at lubricating your engine. So be sure to get an oil change every 3,000 miles or so.

Finally, don’t forget about your tires. The hot pavement can cause your tires to wear down faster than usual. Be sure to check your tire pressure often and get a rotation every few months.

By following these simple tips, you can keep your car running like a well-oiled machine all summer long. So don’t wait until your car breaks down to bring it in for maintenance. Head on down to our shop today and we’ll help you get your car summer-ready. Thanks for reading!
