Especially during the summer months, your vehicle will have an increased chance of overheating. You will want to make sure that you bring it in on a regular basis. This way we can check it over for any issues that it might have. By having it up to date on maintenance, you can help to ensure that everything is working at top efficiency and performance levels for the vehicle. When there is an issue, it is always best to have it inspected and looked at as soon as possible. This will help to prevent further problems from happening as well.
Be aware of the coolant in the vehicle. You will want to check it or have it checked regularly. There should be enough in the reservoir and it should be the proper color and condition. If there is an issue with it, having the coolant flushed will help keep the engine operating properly, and cool as well. If you do discover a leak, contact us so we can check for any issues and the source of the leak. Ignoring it will only make it worse. You also increase the chance of overheating on a hot summer’s day.
Make sure to notice the temperature gauge of the vehicle as well. If it increases into the red, then you will want to turn your vehicle off as soon as possible. If you continue to drive like this, it can cause long term damage to the radiator and engine of the vehicle. You will also want to check to make sure there is actually coolant in the reservoir and that it is not empty. No matter what issue you have with the vehicle running hot, schedule an appointment so we can inspect it for you this summer.
