Get Your Car Ready for the Summer Heat

It's crazy to think that summer is just around the corner, but May is almost over and things are definitely heating up here in Northern Delaware. It won't be long before you are cranking the AC to stay cool, while paying a little more attention to the engine's temperature gauge. Now is the time to get your car ready for summer with some preventative maintenance and important system inspections. Here are a few of the things you will want to consider, according to Fox Run Auto:

Cooling System

The cooling system plays a vital role in keeping your engine from overheating. You want to make sure you have enough clean coolant in your radiator, and that all key components (coolant lines, belts, fans and water pump) are in good shape heading into the hotter months. You never want your engine to overheat, so a cooling system inspection and tune-up is a good idea this time of year.

Air Conditioning

Of course, you also want to keep yourself cool inside the vehicle when it's hot and muggy outside. You may want to get your air conditioning system tested and tuned up, if necessary. It may be due for a coolant recharge, vent cleaning, new cabin air filter or some other minor service. This will help keep the AC running efficiently and effectively when you need it most.

General Automotive Maintenance

The changing of the seasons is always a good reminder to take care of necessary auto maintenance tasks. We're talking about an oil change, brake inspection, tire inspection and exhaust system inspection. Late spring and late fall are often the best times to do a full vehicle review and make sure everything is in good shape as the weather starts to change one way or the other. 

Fox Run Auto is here to help with all your automotive maintenance, inspection and repair needs. We can perform a complete bumper-to-bumper inspection and let you know if there are any issues that need addressing. Then, we can recommend the necessary services and take care of your vehicle maintenance heading into the summer season.
