How to care for your vehicle during hot summer months.By Tim Gibson of Tim's Performance Service Center and RTG Auto Sales.
It's that time of year folks and summer is upon us. Hot, humid days are beginning to be an everyday occurrence for the next couple of months. Remember, your vehicle feels the heat too! So what can you do to help out and protect your investment? Here are 10 great car tips for summer:
1. Have the cooling system checked and serviced. This should include a careful exam with fresh coolant installed.
2. Have your tires inspected for wear, pressure and age.
3. Brake inspection again for wear and performance.
4. Wipers and lights - inspect and replace as needed.
5. Climate control - have the a/c system serviced and tested.
6. Transmission - inspect for fluid condition and shift quality.
7. Steering & suspension - check for wear and any leaks.
8. Battery & charging system - check for condition and performance.
9. Check engine for proper operation and performance.
10. Last but not least is appearance - is the paint, chrome and glass in good condition or starting to look sad? Remember, a dirty car is no fun to drive and may post a vision problem. Ex: broken windshield or bad tint that you can't see out of properly.
