Summer Car Care Tips 

To make sure that your vehicle is ready for its summer road trip, there are a few essential summer car maintenance services you’ll want to perform. We recommend that Huntington drivers get the following in a summer car tuneup: 

  • Oil and Filter Change: Double-check your oil levels to make sure they’re topped off, and inspect your oil filter to ensure it’s in good condition. Hot weather and excessive rains can especially take a toll on your filter, so make sure it’s in good condition before any road trips. 
  • Top off Fluids: From transmission fluid to power steering fluid to and more, you’ll want to make sure all of your fluids are topped off. Above all, make sure your radiator has enough coolant, as your engine is much more likely to overheat in the summer! Many people are wondering, is coolant the same as antifreeze? Find out what antifreeze is by giving our team a visit. 
  • Inspect Tires: Winter can be brutal on your treads and cause micro tears. Make sure your tread is in good condition. Also, gauge the pressure in your tires to ensure they’re properly inflated, as seasonal changes can cause the pressure in your tires to fluctuate. 
  • Test Battery: Winter can take a toll on your battery’s ability to hold a charge. Make sure you have a strong charge, and if you don’t, replace your battery at our parts department
  • A/C Inspection: Make sure your A/C has enough coolant to keep your cabin at safe temperatures at the peak of summer. You’ll also want to make sure you replace your car’s air filter so that your auto circulate function isn’t spreading pollen and other contaminants around your cabin.
