Summer is a time for fun, friends and family. Even if you don't get your full summers off like when you were a kid, you still want to make the most of these warm weather months. Whether that's taking a family vacation or just enjoying a weekend at the beach, there are so many ways to enjoy the sunshine.
One sure way to have a bummer of a summer is when you are dealing with car problems. If you can't get yourself where you want to go, it's hard to have a good time. Fortunately, Fox Run Auto is here to help all Northern Delaware residents and Mid-Atlantic travelers with their automotive repair and maintenance needs. Here are a few tips to help you avoid car trouble this summer:
1. Don't Forget Preventative Maintenance
In the auto repair industry, we call it "preventative maintenance" for a reason. These are proactive services you can have done that will help prevent automotive problems and keep your car running its best. We're talking about regular oil changes, tire rotations, brake inspections and fluid checks. Get these things taken care of before they become a problem!
2. Keep You and Your Car Cool
We all want to look cool in the summer, but it's also important to stay cool in a literal sense. Get your car's air conditioner tuned up so it keeps you and your passengers comfortable when it's hot and muggy outside. This involves cleaning the vents, recharging the coolant, changing out the cabin air filter if needed and checking the thermostat—among other steps—to make sure your A/C is working properly. Likewise, you will want to keep your car cool with a cooling system inspection and tune-up. Prevent your engine from overheating by checking the radiator, coolant, water pump, head gasket, fans and other cooling components.
3. Take Care of Needed Automotive Repairs
