1. Get That Oil Change

Make sure to not put it off. Regular oil changes is what can keep your car well maintained and running smoothly.  Nothing pushes your oil harder than driving in the heat of summer. So before you start adding those hard miles to your engine, make sure your oil is fresh. Your air filters are important this time of year, too, as there are more allergens and dust in the air. When you start cranking up your AC this season, you will be glad you had its filter changed.

2. Examine the Tires

Next, make sure all your tires are checked and rotated. Proper inflation is extremely important, especially as roads get hot in the summer. It can save you money at the gas pump, and it can save wear on your tires. You might even look at getting your alignment checked, as that is important in keeping your tires in good condition.

In addition, if your wheels need repair or your rims need replacing, don’t hesitate to come by Craft Repair in Hampton Roads, VA for same day service. It’s always better to be safe rather than sorry.

3. Check Fluid Levels

Another thing that’s important for summer driving is to make sure all of your fluids are at the proper levels. Coolant is vital during those hot days on the asphalt, as are proper levels of brake, power steering, and transmission fluids. Seasonal weather changes can affect the levels of all of these, so getting them checked at the start of summer is always a good idea.

That way you don’t have any break downs or surprises this Summer.
