Summer Maintenance Tips

Are you excited to embark on your next road trip? It is essential that you make sure that your vehicle is as ready as you are. Extreme heat can cause damage to your car, as well as other environmental factors during the summer. When you bring your vehicle to our expert team in McKinney, you can make sure that it is ready to go.

Oil Change

No matter what time of year, every road trip should start with having your oil changed if it is due. When it gets too hot, the quality of your oil can be impacted. This, in turn, means that it is not doing its job as well as it should. As you can imagine, this can cause issues. You can make sure that your oil is ready to withstand your trip by bringing it in for an oil change.

Fluid Level Check

It takes a lot of different fluids to keep everything moving smoothly underneath your hood. Changes in the weather and temperature can impact fluid levels. When traveling long distances during the summer, it is wise to have all of your fluids inspected and topped off. This includes coolant, transmission, and power steering.

Battery Condition

Did you know that extreme heat can be brutal on your car's battery? You should have yours tested before heading out on your trip. This is particularly important if you have an older battery or are not sure when the last time your battery was replaced.

Tires & Tire Pressure

Proper tire pressure will help you get the best possible fuel economy and protect them from damage. Our team can check the tire pressure as well as inspect the tread condition. We will let you know whether or not they are up for the trip you have planned.
