Summer Maintenance and Tips
Essential Components and Temperature Change
Summer is expected to be a real scorcher in Topeka, KS. And we know that this heat can really crank things up when it comes to the value of summer preparedness and maintenance as needed throughout summer. Our certified technicians performing certified Mopar services know that extreme heat and significant temperature change between winter and summer are serious limitations to many essential components with relatively short service lives. With warmer days before us in Kansas, now is the opportune time to schedule much-needed summer maintenance for peak vehicle performance all summer long.
Start Here: The Infamous Multi-Point Vehicle Inspection
While you should get your car, truck, or SUV serviced year-round at the specified mileage, it is doubly important to receive a multi-point vehicle inspection by a certified technician to ensure that your vehicle is working properly as hot weather arrives in Topeka. An immobilized vehicle from poor maintenance is not only preventable but is a safety concern for us at Briggs Dodge Ram FIAT.
Summer Maintenance Essentials
Battery - Always make sure that your battery is in good condition. The heat can cause your battery to disfigure, leak, and lose voltage capacity.
Fresh Fluids - Oil, Power Steering, Transmission, & Coolant - Always make sure to keep your engine cool and all fluids fresh through summer. Two of the most important fluids are engine oil and coolant/antifreeze when it comes to the right operating temperature throughout the summer.
Air Conditioning Performance Check - Check the current condition and performance of your air conditioning system. With leaking refrigerant being the #1 problem for the A/C, it is important to inspect the system before summer to ensure sufficient performance.
Filters - be sure to check all filters including the cabin air and engine air filters to ensure that they are in excellent condition keeping major systems protected.
Risks of Putting Off Much-Needed Summer Maintenance
Heat and temperature change between seasons are significant threats to overall vehicle reliability throughout the summer. You want to take every precaution possible to ensure that your vehicle is working optimally before you take it on the road during these incredibly hot months. The consequences of ignoring summer maintenance include increased wear & tear, reduced reliability, poor fuel economy, rough engine idling, unpleasant driving experience, immobilized vehicle, and increased operational costs.
