Summer Maintenance Focal Points: Essential Components With Short Service Lives

Here are a few of the most important summer maintenance tips:

  • Engine Oil – make sure to change the engine oil & filter as this is one of the best ways to secure reliable engine performance, efficient power production, and a smooth-firing engine.
  • Fluids – make sure to inspect, top off, and exchange all fluids as needed in summer, including the brake, power steering, windshield wiper, and transmission fluids.
  • Filters – be sure to inspect and replace all filters as needed, including both the cabin air & engine air filters.
  • Lighting – we recommend checking all interior and exterior light bulbs to advance safety.
  • Wiper Blades – after operating through winter, we recommend replacing the wiper blades for peak performance for summer’s adverse weather events.
  • Battery – make sure to perform a physical battery inspection and electrical testing to confirm that the battery is in excellent condition with expected reliable performance.
  • Multi-Point Vehicle Inspection – a methodical and exhaustive assessment of the entire vehicle including all primary components, this inspection will find parts with excessive wear or damages threatening reliable performance.
