Hot Weather Driving Tips

The heat of the summer months can put an extra stress on your vehicle. Here are some important tips to keep your car running smoothly and your passengers safe and comfortable.
1.     Make sure the fluids are all topped off, especially the coolant. Don’t make your engine strain any more than necessary. Be sure the vehicle is parked on a level surface and the engine is cool before you begin.
2.     Change the oil on schedule. Dirty engine oil can also contribute to engine stress and overheating.
3.     Check the cooling fan to be sure it is operating properly. If it is belt driven, a simple inspection of the belt can save you a lot of grief on a long trip.
4.     Check your battery for corrosion and top off fluids if it is not a maintenance free battery.
5.     Make sure your tires are properly inflated and inspect your spare tire for good measure.
If any of your visual inspections leave you concerned or you would prefer a professional vehicle inspection before you next road trip, schedule a service at the Olympia Auto Mall. With 10 dealers, 9 brands, and 1 convenient location they offer everything you need for a successful road trip and a great car experience.
