Summer drives can turn out to be the worst nightmare when your AC unit stops working. As you are already planning a summer health check of your car, don’t forget this essential. Get your AC unit checked by a technician soon.

Get the Engine – Summer Ready!

The sweltering temperature outside further heats your car’s engine too. This makes sense as the major reason for car breakdowns during summer. The coolant level is very important to be well-maintained as it is the central system for the engine’s cool-down process. Besides checking the coolant level every few weeks (at a minimum), go the extra mile and inspect the hose’s connection (when the engine is cool) to make sure it is firm and not squishy or soft. Check if the engine belt needs a replacement.

Give a Check to Fluids

Summers and road trips are made for each other. How will you enjoy smooth long drives if your car is not fluid-filled? Adjust your fuel-change frequency according to your servicing schedule. Never leave your car fluid-thirsty, it will affect the vehicle’s performance a lot.
