To us, no piece of advice is quite as helpful as knowing how to prep your car for summer.

So what should you expect from summertime driving? Well for one, the skyrocketing temperatures can do a number on your vehicle affecting crucial components like your tires, battery, and engine. Heat and friction are any engines’ number one enemy, left unchecked these two factors can do some serious damage to your vehicle.

Take for instance your cooling system, or radiator. Throughout the summer season, your radiator is going to be working double time, so it is highly recommended that you keep this vital component in check. You can ensure the effectiveness of your radiator by checking and replacing the coolant inside. Although it is important to keep in mind that you only change out your coolant once the engine is cool as you can risk inflicting deep burns on your skin due to the pressurized superheated coolant.

Apart from radiators and coolant, you should also be keeping a close eye on your tires. With the change in temperature comes a dramatic change in your tires as the air pressure adjusts to handle this shift of weather. By ensuring that your tires are properly pressurized you can avoid blowing a flat and finding yourself stranded on the side of the road.
