Summer is quickly coming to a close, but before you can spend your evenings in front of a bonfire sipping on some hot cocoa there’s a little work that needs to be done. During the summer your car takes a beating from the hot roads, therefore, you need to practice some important car maintenance tips prior to the start of autumn. Keeping up with your vehicle maintenance every season will help you keep the components and systems in tip top shape so that you can get many more years of life out of your car.

The first thing you need to do is change the oil in your car, even if it is not technically time for an oil change. The hot weather combined with the altered quality of gasoline during the summer months can really expedite the expiration of engine oil. By changing the oil you will give your engine a new lease on life for autumn.

The second important vehicle maintenance rule of thumb following the end of summer is a tire check. It is recommended that drivers check their tires a couple of times a month, but it is wise to take a closer look at your tire treads at the close of summer before the autumn and winter months bring more treacherous road conditions with them. While checking out your tires look at your tread depth and keep an eye on any abnormal wear patterns that may indicate you need a balance and rotation.

Finally, when it comes to end of summer car maintenance you cannot overlook the importance of flushing your coolant system. The same way that engine oil expires quicker during the summer months, engine coolant also takes a beating as it works overtime to keep the engine at lower temps. Your efforts will pay off twofold since the engine coolant also collects heat during the cooler months and sends it through the passenger cabin heating system.

Don't end the summer limping over the finish line looking for urgent car maintenance! Contact our ASE Certified technicians at Phil's Service today for more information about vehicle maintenance and repairs and to schedule an appointment.
