Summer in Tennessee means high temperatures and plenty of humidity. The last thing you want to happen is for your car to leave you stranded on the side of the road on a sweltering day. With a little bit of preventative care, you can help prevent this from happening. Follow these summer maintenance tips to get started.
Check Your Battery
Your car’s battery is highly susceptible to heat. High temperatures can cause the battery fluid to evaporate quickly. Have your battery tested to make sure it’s ready for the season ahead.
Inspect Your Tires
The only thing keeping you in contact with the road is your car’s tires. Look them over and make sure you have enough tread depth, there isn’t uneven wearing, and they’re properly inflated. If you find any problems, have them checked by a professional.
Check Your Fluids
Along with the battery fluid, your vehicle’s other fluids can start to disappear in the summer. Check vital fluids like coolant, engine oil, transmission fluid, and windshield washer fluid to make sure they are at the proper levels.
Test the HVAC System
If your air conditioning doesn’t seem as cold as it used to, it could need a recharge. Take your car in to have the system checked out.
