Summer Road Conditions & Your Vehicle Maintenance Checks
Warm weather coupled with a long drive can be tough on a vehicle, especially if it runs the risk of cracked hoses, leaky radiators, dirty filters, or tires that are improperly inflated or ill-equipped for the drive.
All of these concerns can lead to breakdowns or added fuel costs, which can be avoided with a summer maintenance check at A&B Transmissions.
Understanding Why Summer Auto Maintenance Matters
Each part of your vehicle plays an important role in how it handles, as well as your safety and your overall costs. Here is a breakdown of some of the areas of your vehicle worth maintaining…
- Tires – your tire pressure changes as the temperature does too. Tires that are over or under-inflated can put your safety at risk, but tires that are inflated to the correct levels can actually help with your cars fuel efficiency by up to 3%.
- Oil – a long drive in the summer months also means your engine runs the risk of overheating, which is why an oil check is worthwhile, along with the various fluid and filter, hose and belt checks too.
- Air Conditioner – no one wants to have to endure a long hot drive due to a broken-down air conditioner, and your air conditioner needs to be services every three years – checking it for leaks, filter replacement to ensure air quality, and more.
- Brakes – your brakes also deserve a check before a long summer drive to ensure safety and to avoid unexpected replacement costs – and we’re here to help with that also.
