  1. Don’t tire out your tires. Considering these parts are the only ones to be in direct contact with the road, it’s important to get a tire check up every quarter. Secret tip to make them last longer: fill them with nitrogen, instead of regular air (nitrogen doesn’t expand when temperature rises inside your tires).966
  2. Keep the battery alive and kicking. Your battery will be working extra hard during the hot summer days. Make sure to check your battery at periodic intervals, especially if you’re having troubles with good air conditioning.319
  3. Stay cool. We all need the best A/C we can get. Have all your filters checked and changed, if dirty. Secret tip: these things can cause infection, so you’re encouraged to have an A/C disinfectant service. That’s how Careem makes us so comfortable.204
  4. Yes, the sun can do to a car what it does to us. So it’s vital to regularly check the level of fluids within your car, from the engine oil to the engine coolant.

  5. Shade is everything. Yes, the heat can destroy the internal parts of your car. It’s safest to buy your own sunshade. Otherwise, try your best to find a shaded parking spot. Among the benefits you’ll immediately notice are reduced cracks on your dashboard.

    Its well known fact that tire pressure fluctuates with the surrounding temperature and hence needs to be inspected at a regular interval and if necessary should be properly inflated. Properly inflated tire has a lot of positive effects on the vehicle. Properly inflated tire enhance the fuel economy of the vehicle to a greater extent. Over-inflated or under-inflated tire has a lot of negative effects on the health of the tire itself as well as on the vehicle. Apart from this, tread depth of the tire also needs to be inspected at a regular interval and if the tread depth is lower than average, then it should be replaced with new tire. Properly inflated tires with better tread depth could produce better traction and also enhance the fuel economy of the vehicle.

    It’s interesting how you point out the importance of checking the level of fluids within your car so that your engine doesn’t overheat and your car doesn’t break down. My husband mentioned to me the other day that his car has been acting weird lately, and he’s not sure what the problem is. It’s pretty old and makes a weird noise, so I think he may need a new muffler. He’ll have to take it to a professional so he can figure out what the problem is exactly.
