Coolant Inspection

Keeping your vehicle cool is important for your comfort as you drive. In the summer during the heat and warm temperatures, you will want to make sure you keep your vehicle cool and comfortable. You will want to make sure to bring the vehicle in for regular maintenance inspections so that we can check it for any sign of issues or problems. This way we can look for anything that might be starting to wear out, and have it replaced before it fails completely.

Keeping the car cool

It is important to make sure that you do not overwork your vehicle on extremely hot days. Driving in heavy traffic while also having the air conditioner cranked to the highest fan can put extra strain and stress on your vehicle. Keeping the fan running at a comfortable speed or slightly lower will reduce the chance your vehicle will start to overheat. If steam comes from under the hood of the vehicle, make sure that you turn it off as soon as you can. Also remember to make an appointment to have it checked.

Temperature Gauge

It is important to pay attention to the temperature gauge on the dashboard of your vehicle. Keeping an eye on it alerts you to issues. If it starts to rise, then the engine could be getting too hot. When it gets into the red warning area, make sure to pull your vehicle over when you can, and turn the engine off so that the vehicle can cool down. During the summer, remember to check the coolant level in your vehicle. The indicator line that is on the reservoir can show the level. If it is too low, make sure to add more too it. Adding coolant often could indicate that there is a leak in the system. If you notice this, remember to contact us to schedule an appointment for your vehicle.
