Here are Our Top Tips for Beating the Summer Heat

We're in the dog days of summer now, making it more important than ever that you protect your vehicle against extreme heat. Here are some suggestions to help you keep your car running like a breeze:

  • Regularly inspect your vehicle.Check the tire pressure only when its been parked in the shade and has been idle for at least one hour. Give the battery a good look, checking for any extreme signs of wear or corrosion, since high temperatures can accelerate corrosion and quickly drain the battery's fluid levels. Check your coolant levels and keep the coolant system properly filled.
  • Do not ignore any warning lights. If the battery warning light stays on after you've started the car, that's a good sign of a problem with your alternator.
  • Help the car lose weight. The heavier your vehicle, the more strain you're putting on a transmission that's already battling the heat.
  • Give your vehicle's exterior a fresh coat of sealant or wax, and make sure to protect the interior while you're at it.
