Your car will take care of you as much as you take care of it. Neglect your vehicle and chances are it will leave you high and dry before you know it. Take care of your ride and it’ll keep getting you where you need to go, time after time. This is especially true during the hot summer months. At U-Wrench-It, we see what happens to neglected cars every single day with our junk car removal service. Trust us, it’s definitely worth giving your car the care it needs!
Extreme weather can really take a toll on your vehicle. The best thing you can do for your vehicle is to get it prepared for summer before it gets too hot. Have your fluids flushed out and replaced. Change your oil every 5,000 miles or so, check all your hoses for cracks and dry rot and replace any belts that are frayed or cracked.
These minor and relatively inexpensive maintenance checks can save you thousands in repairs down the road.
Protect Your Interior
Aside from the heat of the summer sun, UV rays that beam through your car’s windows can also break down your dashboard and leather upholstery. Overexposure to heat and UV can cause cracking, peeling and color fading, lowering the overall value of your vehicle. Using windshield sunscreens are very important.
Good Tires Are Key
Also, make sure your tires are in good shape! This is super important all year round but during the extreme heat of the summer, roads can become incredibly hot and cause damage to old tires. Stick to highway driving whenever possible as they are usually better maintained than local and city roads.
