What Kind of Summer Maintenance Does My Car Need?

As many of us get in the head space to enjoy the summer, you may not want to forget about your car. We tend to overlook how much the hot temperatures can take a toll on our cars. We’d hate for you to deal with an unexpected breakdown. You’re welcome to bring your car to the experts at Snellville Auto Center so that we can summer-ize your vehicle. Here are 4 maintenance items to check off before heading into summer.

1) Air-Conditioning System 

Staying cool is a top priority for the summer. If it has been a while since you serviced your car A/C, then leaking refrigerant should not come as a shock. One common sign of A/C leaks is warm air blowing instead of cool. At our auto repair shop, we have the necessary equipment to recharge your air conditioning system if you are concerned about your HVAC system.

2) Air Filter

Speaking of your HVAC system, you should have your cabin air filter changed too. If the filter is dirty or clogged, then now would be the perfect time to change it. Not only can running on a dirty air filter overwork the air conditioning system, but it can cause odors and illnesses too.

3) Vehicle Fluids

Your automobile runs on various vital fluids including the engine oil, power steering fluid, brake fluid, and even windshield washer fluid. You should have a mechanic top you off on these essential fluids so their corresponding system stays in check. 

4) Battery

Last but not least, we recommend testing your battery before the summer. The heat can kill your car battery. The test will let you know whether it is a good time to replace the battery. As a result, you won’t have to worry about car start failures.
