Having been New Jersey Jeep® dealers for a while now, we can tell you that it’s important for you to take care of your car during the summer. While summer is a great time for a vacation, it’s also when your vehicle is exposed to bright sunshine, intense heat, and the occasional rainstorm. All of these things can take a toll on your automobile, but there are some things you can do to protect your car from the ravages of summer.
Here are some tips that will make taking care of your vehicle easier this summer:
- Change Your Oil and Oil Filter: Your oil and oil filter are what protect your engine from excessive wear and tear and damage. To get summer off to the right start, change your oil and oil filter.
- Check Your Fluid Levels: Oil isn’t the only critical fluid that keeps your vehicle operating properly. Your car also relies on power steering fluid, coolant, brake fluid, and windshield wiper fluid. You should check how much of these fluids your car has regularly throughout the summer months.
- Monitor Your Tire Pressure: In addition to checking your fluid levels often, you also need to monitor your tire pressure closely. Your air pressure will change every day depending on the temperature. When tires don’t have the correct amount of air pressure, it will reduce your car’s fuel efficiency and it’ll cause your tires to wear much faster. If you’re not used to checking your tire pressure, make it a habit to check it every time you fill up your gas tank.
- Make a Service Appointment: Whether you drive a 2017 RAM 1500 or another one of our capable vehicles, keeping up with your automobile’s routine maintenance is key to taking care of your car during the summer and every other season.
