Summer Service Tips to Keep in Mind

 

It’s summer, so you might feel like you don’t need to do as much routine maintenance on your vehicle as in wintertime, but a car still benefits from some summertime upkeep. Check out these tips below from us here at Gossett Kia.

 

Tires

Any kind of extreme temperature change will affect pressure in a tire. Many people are familiar with how cold air in the winter causes tires to deflate faster, but did you know hot air in the summertime can overinflate a tire, too? Check tire pressure regularly, and make sure you keep an eye out for hot pavement that can cause a blowout.

 

Coolant

When it comes to keeping your car running in the summer, making sure your vehicle can stay cool is a top priority. That’s why you should always be aware of the coolant in your engine, which is crucial to maintaining a steady temperature under the hood of your car.

 

Air-Conditioning

If your car needs to stay cool, so do you. Maintaining your HVAC system allows you to put cold air on blast when you need to beat the heat, and if you keep your HVAC system in good shape during the summer, it’ll be in good shape when winter rolls around and you need your defroster.

 

Air Filter

Summer means there’s going to be lots of pollen and dust flying around, which equals more stuff for your air filter to pick up. Be kind to your engine by changing the air filter to a clean one.

 

Windshield Wipers

It’s the right time of year for lots of heavy rain, and it’s easy to wear out your windshield wipers during storm season, so make sure you’re keeping your blades in top condition and replacing them if they leave streaks.

 

Essential Fluids

You should be changing your oil regularly anyway, so make sure you do that in addition to checking and/or topping off all the other fluids in your vehicle. These fluids keep your car lubricated and functioning properly.
