Summer Car Maintenance Tips

While driving in the summer might not seem like the most grueling experience for your car, it certainly can cause its issues. German Auto Sport has come up with a few tips that will help keep your car running smoothly during the continued summer months.

  1. Tire Checks: Tire pressure directly changes due to the temperature outside. The PSI of your tires often increase between 1-2 psi for every 10 degree increase. Be sure your tire pressure is at the recommended value. You can check this by reading your cars owners manual. An under inflated tire puts pressure on the sidewalls of the tire while an over inflated tire will make less contact with the road which can potentially lead to hydroplaning during rainy weather.
  2. Air Conditioning Malfunction: Air Conditioning gets worked alot during the summer months and it isn’t uncommon to have your unit stop working. While there could be many causes for this, with the most common being a low level of refrigerant, it may be best to have an expert check it out.
  3. Windshield Wipers:Windshield wipers are crucial to work during the winter but are also important during the summer. Be sure to check them once in a while to make sure they work. Violent and sudden thunderstorms will bring unexpected rain and you need to be sure your wipers work 100%.

If you are to run into any problems with the problems listed about, German Auto Sport is happy to help.
