Essential Summer Vehicle Maintenance Tasks to Take Care of Now

Before summer arrives, start taking care of your vehicle's summer maintenance. By starting early you can be sure your vehicle will be ready to go once summer is in full swing.

Get Your Tires Just Right

As a vehicle owner you're probably tired of always having to keep an eye on your tires. However, tire maintenance is essential and something that you should never skip over. The summer heat is known to cause tires to over inflate. This may not sound like a big deal, but it can be bad news. Overinflated tires can put you in danger of a blowout, can cause uneven wear, and can reduce your fuel economy. Grab your pressure gauge and check on your tire pressure regularly so that you can be sure you're safe on the road and getting the best gas mileage. While you're at it, now is a good time to check on your tire tread. A simple way to test your tread is by placing a penny in the tread gaps with Lincoln's head down. If his full head is visible, it's time to invest in a new set of tires. Avoid putting this off as bad tires can lead to serious road accidents.

Check on Your Cooling System

No matter where you live, summer temperatures will likely be significantly higher than they were these past two seasons. This isn't just inconvenient for you, it can also be troublesome for you engine. To keep temperatures under the hood under control, take care of your cooling system. This system works hard to keep temperatures manageable and your engine in good shape. If there are any issues in this system, it can cause your vehicle to overheat and leave you stranded. Check your coolant levels and double check the entire system just to be sure there are no leaks, cracks, or clogs that can become an issue. If you're planning to head on a road trip and haul your boat or any other large item with you, checking on you cooling system is a must.

Get a Synthetic Oil Change

How often your vehicle will need to have its oil changed will depend on the type of oil you use and the manufacturer's recommendations. Even so, make a habit out of checking your oil level and the condition of your oil regularly. Neglecting to do so can lead to added strain on your engine and premature wear. To give your engine the best protection, make sure to use a synthetic oil. To find the perfect synthetic oil for all of your engines, contact Synthetic Oil Direct at (215) 834-8720.

Test Your Battery

The winter cold can be extra trying on batteries, but the summer heat can be just as bad. Your battery may have been weakened by the cold winter, so checking your battery's voltage before summer starts is highly recommended. This will help you avoid getting stranded on the road this season. However, if your battery is over three years old, it may be better to change it now. Batteries tend to last three to five years, so it's better to play it safe. If you battery is still relatively new, check and clean the connections and terminals. Remove any build up and corrosion in these areas to ensure better operation.

Clean the Inside of Your Car

Cleaning the inside of your car may not sound like a pressing task, but it can make a huge difference this season. Start by removing any large items that you don't need to be chauffeuring around. Large, bulky items that you maybe used in winter or spring can weigh down your car and negatively affect your gas mileage. Once you've removed these items, deep clean the interior. Finish off by using a protectant formula on the dashboard and other areas that may be affected by the hot sun. Consider using a sun shade to protect these surfaces further. If your main concern is your summer fuel economy, check out these tips to get the most out of your summer fuel.

Have the Air Conditioning Serviced

Your vehicle's air conditioning isn't there solely for your comfort, it can also help clear up a fogged up windshield on a humid day. Test your air conditioning now before summer arrives. If it doesn't work or if it's a bit weak, take your car in to get serviced. Taking care of it now will help you avoid a booked mechanic in the middle of the summer.
