Heat scorching on the napes of our head indicates that Summer’s around the corner this means its time for road trips!!! With summer peeking at us, naturally, the excitement of traveling makes us go on shopping, buying pretty dresses, t-shirts, frilly hats, etc, etc but wait! Just hold on for a second, aren’t you going to make your car summer-ready too? Oh remember it now, and if it’s in good condition you could sell your car any time you want. So here are some tips that would help you make your car summer ready.
1. Tight up your tires:
Since the weather wouldn’t show any mercy on you that doesn’t mean you would do the same with your tires. One needs to keep a check, as they are the one between you and road. Look after the wears and tears of the tires. Due to heat and the rough terrain, you may take your vehicle to. The tires start to lose their grip from the road which could be life-threatening.
Secondly, the rubber made modules of the valve in the tire can end up wearing out. They need to replaced regularly to maintain sufficient air pressure. Since safety should be your first priority, take care of the tires.
2. Fuel up your “fuel”:
As we say eat healthily and drink lots of water in the summer to keep ourselves hydrated, so why should be it any different for your car. Increase in temperature means your vehicle needs higher oil weight or we can say viscosity. If your car is new it might not be a problem but if your car has taken you significant places then it might be good to enhance to a heavier oil to prevent any damage to the engine. Although before making any switch you might want to refer to your mechanic for the same as you would end up doing more bad than good.
3. Look out to your battery date:
It may seem like winters are more harmful to the battery of your cars and be careful! Because summer is standing in pretentious innocence. What you don’t notice is that your battery is more likely to wear out due to the scorching heat of the summer. Yet again, if your battery is new, there is no problem at all but if your battery is over three years, refer to your mechanic and get it tested. It would be a wonderous idea if you would think about replacing it to save yourselves from canny situations.
4. Quick Check-Ups:
Nevertheless, twice a year make your vehicle go through a regular checkup before summers and winters. Be responsible and make your mechanic check fluid levels, battery terminals, hoses, wipers, brakes, tires, belts, and headlights. It helps in knowing even the smallest issues with your car before they turn to be massive.
Approaching summer is delightful but before traveling maintain your car in a good condition to keep yourself and your family out of any life-threatening and dangerous situation. If your car is good condition it might be easy for you to sell your car any time you want. So folks, Bon Voyage!
