Summer Car Maintenance Tips to Keep Your Vehicle Running Smoothly , Loveland, Ohio

Your car suffers a lot of wear and tear from exposure to the elements. This summer, your vehicle needs extra care as the warm weather could cause your engine to overheat. Ken Marcotte's Professional Auto Service in Loveland, OH, offers top-notch auto maintenance to keep you vehicle in peak condition.

Their expert car maintenance staff offers these simple and easy-to-follow tips to keep your vehicle running smoothly this summer:

  • Check The Fluids: It’s important to take your vehicle to a reputable mechanic to check its overall condition. Make sure your car has all of the important fluids, including engine oil, power steering fluid, brake fluid, and coolant.
  • Car MaintenanceTurn Up The Heater: Turn up your car’s heater for a few minutes to allow the fluids in the car to circulate. This will keep the heater clean and prevent deterioration; you won’t need to change the heating system or any of its components when the winter season comes.
  • Check The Battery, Engine, & Tires: Check the battery for dirt and corrosion. A dirty battery loses energy more quickly. Make sure your engine is free of dirt; debris and particles can cause it to overheat. Also, inspect your car’s timing belt for cracks that may affect the engine's performance. Don’t forget to check the condition of your tires as well. Under-inflated tires may lead to loss of fuel efficiency. Tires that are worn are a safety hazard as they can affect your ability to brake properly.
  • Check For Leaks: Before you head out, check for leaks. If you notice oily spots on your garage floor, maybe it’s time for car maintenance. Bring your vehicle to a trusted mechanic to determine what is causing the leak.

Regular car maintenance will not only keep your vehicle running smoothly this summer, but it will also improve its lifespan. Call Ken Marcotte's Professional Auto Service at (513) 683-7852 for more professional car care tips and check out their website to learn more about their services.
