Is your car ready for summer? Hot weather might be challenging for your vehicle´s performance and you need to take a diligent care of its coolant and air conditioning systems, tires as well as check all the essential fluids and more.
Where do we start when it comes to your car´s summer maintenance?
Coolant system. Check your vehicle´s coolant system, inspect the hoses and coolant reservoir and make sure that there are no leaks or any other issues.
Wipers. Are your wipers worn? If so it´s time to change them. Summer does not mean that rainy weather is over and if your wipers are worn, they might create streaks on the windshields. What can be more important than vision when driving? So keep your windshields maximum clean.
Engine belts should be part of your checklist. Planning long-distance summer trips? Have you checked your engine belts? Are they in a good condition? When engine belts become loose or deteriorate it´s time to replace them with the new ones.
Check all the fluids that need to be checked. Contact a trustworthy mechanic to check your vehicle´s oil, brake, power-steering and windshield-washer fluids. It´s not as easy task as it sounds and it´s better to find the right auto body shop with qualified staff.

Air-conditioning system. Especially in summer, you can´t skip checking your air conditioning system. Make sure it works well.
Tires. As always, don´t neglect checking tires. Especially their pressure needs to be checked regularly in hot summer weather. Also, your tires should be in good condition without any cracks or else.
Wash your car. You might need to wash your car once or twice a month, however this totally depends on a location, weather, the distance you drive and more. Just make sure you wash it whenever your vehicle needs it. Also, park in a shadow to protect your car from direct sunrays as they damage carpaint.
