Summer is approaching and we can’t wait! Summer weather brings summer road trips and vacation, but it is important to prepare your vehicle for these upcoming road trips. At Placentia Super Service, we want you to enjoy your summer without having to worry about or deal with car troubles. The best way we can help you is by giving you tips on what maintenance jobs you should get done before summer is even here!
These following tips are extremely helpful as they can prevent damage to your vehicle if not taken care of. The team at Placentia Super Service has selected these tips because our experience has shown these to be some of the most common issues during summer months. We hope you continue reading so you can be well informed when visiting us for all your maintenance needs!
Check Your Tires: Your tires are an essential part of your Summer road trip, as you will be traveling long distances. What you need to check here is the tire tread depth, and the tire pressure. If your tire tread is low, you may need new tires. While if your tire pressure is low, you may need a refill to get your tires to the right pressure.
Change Oil and Oil Filter: Your engine's oil is important as it keeps all your moving parts well lubricated and helps keep the engine temperature from overheating. We recommend having your oil inspected to make sure it is filled and clean.
Check Hoses and Belts: Having your hoses and belts inspected can help avoid trouble on the road. Bad hoses can cause your fluids to leak and bad belts can cause timing issues in your engine which can cause damage. Bring your vehicle into a trusted auto shop to be inspected for any bad hoses or worn out belts.
Check Brakes: When on your road trip, you want to be sure your brakes are working properly. To ensure this, an inspection will check for worn out brakes that should be changed.
Maintain your air conditioning: Summer brings hot months! When on the road, you want to be sure you don't overheat by having a properly working air conditioner. Have your A/C inspected so you can be sure your vehicle will help you and your passengers stay cool.
