How to Prepare Your Vehicle for Summer Heat, Aberdeen, South Dakota

The first day of summer is nearly a month away, which means the thermometer is on the rise. While this warm weather might be great for a dip in the pool, it can do considerable damage to your vehicle, if you’re not careful. This summer, beat the heat with these tips from the auto body and collision repair experts at ABRA Auto.

ABRA Auto Body & Glass’s Guide to Summer Maintenance

auto bodyThe most important safety precaution drivers should take in the summer months, ABRA’s automotive repair specialists explain, is to check the radiator. Make sure that the mechanism that cools it down is in top condition and that the fluid levels are sufficient. Doing so will keep your engine cool despite the hot weather.

Next are your tires. Between vacations and trips to the ice cream parlor, your tires get a lot more use in the summer. You’ll need to maintain proper pressure to avoid additional and unnecessary wear. If you’re not sure how much you need, consult your local auto body shop.

Finally, check your air conditioning system, because the last thing you want is to get into your hot car only to realize it’s not working. Ensure that cold air is flowing properly and that there are no leaks below the vehicle.
