The coolant is important for the vehicle. Also remember the air conditioner of your vehicle is important, especially during the summer. This will help the interior of your vehicle to stay cool and comfortable as you are driving. If the air conditioner is starting to go out, you will notice that the air is no longer cool. Make sure that you contact us so we can inspect the air conditioning system for you. You will want a pleasant and comfortable ride in the summer heat. Also remember to have refrigerant inspected so it is in the best condition. If you are not sure when you should bring the vehicle in for regular maintenance inspections, we can advise you on that as well.
Along with checking the air conditioner, you will want to make sure that the coolant is at the proper amount for your vehicle. If there is a leak or crack in the hose, this can cause the vehicle to overheat. If you are in stop and go traffic, it will result in the increased chance of a vehicle overheating. Make sure to check the temperature gauge to see what it is at. If it is increasing, you can turn off the air conditioner. If the gauge gets into the red area, you will want to pull your vehicle over as soon as it is safe to do so, and turn it off. This will help prevent damage to the engine as well.
Before long trips
Always make sure to have your vehicle inspected before any long road trip or vacation you might take during the summer. This way we can inspect all the parts and components of the vehicle. We can look at the fluids under the hood, as well as checking the tires before you plan on hitting the road.
