Summer Maintenance Tasks to Keep Your Vehicle in Top Shape

As a new season arrives, so does the time to take care of seasonal maintenance tasks. Although these may seem like unimportant chores, completing them will help keep your vehicle in better shape for longer. To get started on your summer maintenance, follow these tips.

Get Rid of Winter Remnants

Winter is long gone, but many people still have some winter remnants on or in their car. Start by cleaning the inside of your car to remove any grime and dirt that got inside your car thanks to the inclement winter weather. Now is also the perfect time to remove any clunky winter tools or accessories you've been carrying around for too long. Doing so can significantly reduce the weight of your car, leading to better gas mileage. Once that's done, move on to the outside of your vehicle. If you haven't given your car a serious wash since winter, chances are it still has some corrosive elements left on it. Carefully wash your car and undercarriage to remove any built on debris. Once it's clean and dry, apply a layer of wax to protect your vehicle's exterior from the elements. Click here for tips on how to increase your summer fuel economy.

Pay Attention to the Air Conditioning

If you're expecting a steep increase in temperatures this season, make sure you don't have to endure them without air conditioning. Test your air conditioning now and get it serviced as soon as possible if there are any issues. You're better off making sure your air conditioning will keep you cool all summer instead of waiting for a serious issue to arise midsummer. If you wait until midsummer to get it fixed, chances are you'll have to wait longer for cold air.

Get a Synthetic Oil Change

Rising outdoor temperatures can combine with temperatures under the hood to create an even hotter situation. Keep your engine well protected by giving it a synthetic oil change at the right intervals. While change intervals will depend on a few factors, you can be sure that they will be longer with a synthetic oil. Not only will you able to forget about oil changes for longer, you can also be sure your engine will be better protected no matter how hot or cold temperatures get.

Keep Things Cool Under the Hood

Another crucial system that works hard to regulate temperatures under the hood is your cooling system. This system is composed of many parts including hoses, belts, clamps, and other components that need to be at their best to get the job done. Thoroughly inspect these components while looking out for leaks, clogs, cracks, and other issues that can lead to trouble on the road, like overheating. Finally, check on your coolant to be sure there is plenty left in its reservoir. It's also recommended that you carry extra in your car in case of emergencies.

Inspect Your Tires

The summer heat not only raises temperatures under the hood, it can also cause your tires to become overinflated. Don't wave this off as unimportant. Overinflated tires can lead to uneven tread wear, suspension issues, reduced traction, and even tire blowouts. To prevent these issues, simply check your tire pressure periodically and make the necessary adjustments. Finally, check the tread wear to be sure your tires can still keep you safe on the road. Don't forget to also check on your spare tire! To check your tire tread, something as basic as a penny may be all you need.

Take a Look at Your Brakes

It goes without saying but your brakes are probably one of the most important features on your car that help keep you and your passengers safe. For this reason, it's very important that you are aware of your brake performance. If you start to notice any issue, as small as it may seem, inspect your brakes or get them serviced right away before it turns into a serious issue.
