summer maintenance

Summer is in full swing, and in Kansas, that means extreme heat. It’s important to make sure your vehicle is properly maintained and prepared for the summer season.

Here are a few things you can do:

  • Check your cooling system. The biggest cause for summer breakdowns is overheating, so be sure to consistently monitor your temperature gauge. Be sure to also check your coolant level and concentration and get belts, clamps and hoses inspected by a professional.
  • Check your tires. Make sure that all tires are properly inflated and have good tread depth. Remember to always have a spare tire in case you get an unexpected flat during a summer road trip.
  • Check your air conditioner. A good air conditioning system is essential for summer in Kansas. If you notice your system isn’t working well, be sure to check for leaks and choose the right kind of refrigerant for your vehicle.
  • Pack an emergency kit. While you won’t need ice scrapers and road salt in the summer, it’s important to still keep a few emergency items in your vehicle. A first aid kit, flares, flashlights, and water are a few essential summer items.
