Summers are hot here in Texas. That means your vehicle might need a little extra care from the team at Lone Star Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram’s state-of-the-art service department to ensure that it’s running at its best. We don’t want your vehicle being inefficient, or worse, breaking down. Follow these tips for caring for your car during the summer and you should be just fine.
- Keep an Eye on Your Fluid Levels: Check and top off all fluids before the hottest temperatures hit. Then, check again often. Fluids like engine oil, transmission fluid, brake fluid, and more are essential to your car staying healthy on the road. Summer months can cause them to lower quicker than they might in cooler temperatures.
- Check Belts and Hoses: A loose or worn down belt can cause your engine to overheat. Of course, in the hot summer months, overheating is even more likely. Excessive heat can also cause damage to your hoses so keep an eye on them for any damage.
- Check Tire Inflation: Your tires should be properly inflated. What that means changes with the temperature. Talk to the experts at Lone Star Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram to discover the right level for your tires and driving style to keep your car running efficiently and ensure that your tires last.
- Have Your AC Inspected: You don’t want to find out that your air conditioning isn’t working when you need it the most. Have an air conditioning inspection done before the hottest months hit so you don’t risk being extremely uncomfortable in a sweltering car.
