Best Summer Maintenance Tips For Your Car

The summer is typically the roughest season on your car. The added heat and strain of the air conditioning system can result in breakdowns and being stranded. Here are some tips for your car this summer that will keep you going and minimize repairs.

1) Cooling system flush. This costs around $60-$80 and is important as residue, rust, metal particles, etc.will clog up your system and reduce its effectiveness. If your cooling system is compromised it can lead to engine overheating and very expensive repairs or total engine failure.

2) Battery test.Take your car to a auto parts store and have the battery checked. Most will do this for free. They will also clean your battery cables and terminals.Sulfuric acid build up will corrode and worsen the connections which can lead to a dead battery or other electrical problem.

A bad battery will not hold the proper charge and, especially in traffic on a hot day can leave you stranded. Believe in Murphy's law and be prepared for it. If something can or will fail it will probably do it when you least expect it and when it will effect you the most. Be prepared by testing your battery and replacing if necessary.

3) Change the oil and transmission fluid replace filters.Have this professionally done as a mechanic can tell you of warning signs with oil color, smell, etc. that can warn of impending or future issues. They will top off and check all necessary fluids for your car. They will also check the belts, hoses, tires and more if you ask.

As a general rule, have the oil changed every 4,500 miles.4) Remember to take care of your car's finish.You want the paint to remain in good condition for as long as possible. Wash the car regularly as bird dropping, acid rain, dirt, etc. can ruin the finish.Apply wax and sealant to protect the paint from the sun, salt and weather conditions.

Don't neglect your headlights, which can become cloudy and won't operate as well. New Lite Headlight Repair, Cleaner and Restorer will return cloudy headlights to like new condition.These tips will keep your car running all summer long, make it safer, and make it look great.
