Our Top Tips to Help Beat the Heat

With the heat of summer bearing down on us, so it's extremely important that you help protect your vehicle against the extreme temperatures. Here are a few suggestions to help you keep your car running like a breeze during the dog days of summer:

  • Give your vehicle routine inspections.Check your tire pressure when the vehicle has been idle for a minimum of one hour and is parked in a shady spot. Examine the battery for any wear or corrosion, since extreme temperatures can speed up corrosion and drain your battery's fluid. Also make sure to check the coolant levels and keep the coolant system properly filled.
  • Pay attention to any warning lights. If your battery warning light stays on after you've started the vehicle, that's a possible sign of a problem developing with your alternator.
  • Lose some weight. The more your car weighs, the harder you're working a transmission that's busy fighting the heat.
  • Protect your vehicle's exterior with a fresh coat of sealant or wax, and take some time to protect the interior while you're at it.
