How to Prepare for Summer Driving and Vacations

Of course, heat is the biggest change coming with the summer season, so most of our vehicle maintenance tips deal with preparing your car, truck, or SUV for it.

  • Your battery is arguably the most crucial component of your vehicle, and it's not just the cold of winters in Hershey that can cause battery problems. Heat and vibrations can cause battery failure, so check your battery fluid levels and make sure it's secure to reduce vibrations.
  • You should also keep an eye on other important fluids in your engine compartment. This includes engine coolant so that it doesn't overheat as well as brake, transmission, and power steering fluids.
  • Make sure your tires are at the right PSI as under-inflated tires are more likely to overheat and lead to a blowout, which is always a scary experience.
  • Your vehicle's air conditioning is vital in the summer heat, and our technicians can make sure your car's A/C is operating as it should.
