Maintaining your vehicle year-round is vital for prolonging the life of your car, truck or SUV as well as saving you money. Regular car maintenance can not only extend the life of your vehicle, but it can also lead to better gas mileage.
This summer, don’t forget to get your oil and oil filter changed. Different weather conditions can cause different demands on your engine oil and oil filter, so it’s always important to regularly check them. Another good thing to do this summer is to check your fluid levels. It’s important to consistently monitor your coolant, transmission fluid, and even your windshield fluid.
While tire pressure tends to drop during cooler weather, you should still monitor your tire pressure even during the summer. If you’re preparing for a summer road trip, the last thing you’d want is a flat tire!
Finally, get your brakes inspected and evaluate your alignment. If you notice your brakes making noises or needing extra pressure, it may be a sign that they need replaced. Alignment can be thrown off by general wear and tear, so stop in for a checkup! Proper alignment can improve your ride, save gas, and extend the life of your tires.
