spring car maintenance tips

Prepare your car for the intensity of summer!

Summer is on the way! Finally, we will be able to enjoy the heat of the sun along with all the fun of the warmer weather. Before we can enjoy it properly, however, we need to make sure our cars are in good working order. Extreme weather is always going to be challenging for your vehicle, but we’re going to give you the rundown on how you and prepare your car, truck, or van. Are you ready to learn more about how you should prepare your vehicle for summer? Well, let’s get started!

Service the AC

Before the heat really gets going, you will want to make sure that your air conditioner is in working order. Give it a run while you’re at home to see if it comes on. Listen for any disruptions in the flow or crackling sounds. You should also make sure that it is actually cooling the car and not just blowing.

Check the coolant.

You should replace your coolant once a year for the best results, but if you’ve been holding off then now is the time. Make sure to clean it up appropriately if you spill! Dogs actually like the taste of the glycol, but it is very toxic.

Give your tires some love.

The hot pavement of summer can often be very hard on your tires. Before things get rolling, you should check their pressure. You should also look into how they’re handling wear and tear. Do they look worn out? It might be time for a replacement.

Don’t forget the windshield wipers!

Summer rainstorms can be really intense. You need to ensure that your wipers are in working condition before the rains come so that you can stay safe on the road!
