SUMMER'S COMING . . . Here Are A Few Summer Car Care Tips

  • ü  Tire pressure ~ Make sure your tires are properly inflated.  Using an air pressure gauge be sure that your tire pressure meets the manufacturer’s specs, as listed in your owner’s manual.
  • ü  Motor oil levels ~ It’s a good habit to check your motor oil before every trip.  If it’s low, or due for a change, your engine is in danger of overheating.
  • ü  Coolant & water levels ~ Monitor your coolant and water level gauge’s.  Overheating can also occur if your engine’s coolant or water is too low.
  • ü  Battery ~ Test your battery.  Summer temps can shorten the life of your car’s battery.  Before taking a trip, weak or old batteries should be tested and replaced if necessary.
  • ü  Vehicle headlights ~ Clean your vehicle headlights.  It is important to see and be seen.  Built-up residue, such as pollen, dirt or mud may cause your headlight to appear dim.
  • ü  Turn signals & vehicle lights ~ Check your vehicle’s lights, including all headlights, break lights and turn signals, to make sure they work properly.
  • ü  Wiper blades ~ The weather does not always cooperate while you’re traveling.  Remember to check your wiper blades on both sides to ensure tight attachment and clean blade surface.
  • ü Windshield ~ Regularly clean your windshield and windows both inside and outside to reduce glare and improve visibility.
