Summer Maintenance Tips  

Automobile Summer Maintenance Appointments

Whether you’re planning an elaborate summer road trip or you can’t wait to cruise around town with the windows down, making sure that your vehicle is summer-ready is essential to the staff here at Arrowhead Cadillac. While it might seem like summer is the easiest season on your vehicle, there is a lot of wear and tear that can still occur during the summer months in Glendale. Here are our tips for automobile summer maintenance.

Have Your Oil Changed Routinely

You still want to keep up with your routine oil changes (and oil filter changes) over the summer, but make sure you have one done when you are about to head out on a road trip. This provides you with reliability, and you’ll be able to protect your vehicle from the rain, sun, heat, and dust that is usually around in the summer.

Have Your Fluid Levels Checked

Your fluid levels can change quickly during the summer based on the weather patterns we’re experiencing in Glendale. At your maintenance appointments, we’ll check the levels and quality of your coolant, power steering fluid, and transmission fluid. Coolant is an important part of keeping your engine cool all summer long.

Checking Your Tire Pressure and Treads

Before you hit the road this summer, make sure that all four of your tires have adequate tread left on them. You also want to make sure that you have the recommended amount of pressure in all four of your tires. If you need a new set, let the technicians at Arrowhead Cadillac help you pick something out.

Vehicle Battery Inspection

An inspection of your vehicle’s battery will consider all of the various connections and such that are on your battery. We’ll also check on the current charge of your battery. If you haven’t replaced your battery yet and it’s nearing its end of life, it might be wise to invest in a new one.
