With temperatures surpassing 100 degrees across the Piedmont Triad, we should all be remembering how important it is to care for a car over the summer. Your vehicle needs extra care and attention in any extreme weather, either winter or summer. This blog outlines the importance of regular engine service in summer and kinds of service you should get your vehicle in these warmer months.
Maintain the Coolant System
Maintaining the coolant system is essential when things heat up. This means swapping old parts for new, testing your radiator pressure, and don’t forget to examine your hoses for any damage too. The water pump is also important. Keep track of when you last replaced it. If it looks faded or you just think it’s been a while, swap it out for a new one. Replacing the coolant itself is good insurance against the extreme weather. It doesn’t take long and is fairly affordable to do.
You really, really do not want your vehicle air-conditioning to collapse on you in 100° plus heat. So we advise all customers to have this checked at the beginning of the summer. We advise against checking your own refrigerant. This can be harmful to those who don’t understand how to work with it. Have one of our professionals or another professional check the thermostat, compressor, and evaporator too.
