When it comes to summer maintenance on your vehicle, start with the engine. Make sure that the PCV valve and the hoses are all free from damage. After that, you will want to make sure that the engine will not overheat. Check the coolant level. Also, be sure to turn on the engine and see if the temperature light comes on. After that, it is time to check the air conditioning. Make sure you get a steady flow of cool air from each vent. Also, you will want to change out the air cabin filter at this time. After that, it is time to examine the battery. Make sure that your vehicle is getting a proper charge. Also, be sure to inspect the battery for any signs of corrosion. Now it is time to check the lights. Make sure all headlights, tail lights, and fog lamps are in working order. Finally, check each tire. Make sure there is enough tread on each tire and check the pressure levels.
The chances are that you will be going on a couple of road trips this summer. You certainly don’t want to deal with an overheated engine, dead battery, or a tire blowout. Therefore, you must ensure that certain parts of your vehicle are in top condition. A little summer maintenance can go a long way to ensure that you and your occupants are safe on the road.
