Summer Vehicle Maintenance Checklist

Scheduled Vehicle Maintenance Saves You Cash

Putting off regular car service is a mistake all of us have made. In our excitement to get on the road, we do not take the time to ensure our vehicle is in tip-top shape. Before you know it, your radiator needs replacing or your engine has burned up in the summer heat. Which do you think will cost you more? A gallon of coolant or a new engine?

Improve the Life of Your Car

Keeping your car, truck, or SUV maintained isn’t just to ensure you get a more affordable, problem-free vacation. Over time, keeping your car, truck, or SUV maintained keeps it healthy for much longer than a minimally maintained one.

Safety On The Road

Nobody plans to be stranded on the side of the road in the middle of nowhere, or worse. keeping your car in tip-top shape can make sure you and your family and friends reach your destination safely. So, before you head out on vacation, take a few minutes to look at this brief car summer-proofing checklist:

Air Conditioning

  • When you run your A/C, check for funky smells, unusual noises, or minimal or no cold air. If any or all of these issues appear, you’ll probably need to get your A/C system inspected.

Engine Coolant

  • Check your radiator or overflow tank levels to see if your engine is being properly cooled. Using a coolant tester can confirm your water/coolant mixture is properly mixed.

Engine Fluids

  • Check your brake fluid, transmission fluid, and oil to make sure your vehicle’s moving parts are appropriately lubricated at all times.

The Three ‘B’s’

  • Brakes

    Remove your tires one-at-a-time and examine your brake pads and/or shoes for any noticeable indicators of wear-and-tear.

  • Battery

    A battery tester can check the potency of your battery to make sure your car, truck, or SUV starts up each time you need it to.

  • Blades

    Ensure your windshield wiper blades are in good condition and not jumping across your dry windshield or leaving streaks on a wet one.
