3 Common Summer Car Problems

#1 Dead Car Battery

We all know that winter time is especially hard on batteries. Did you know that summer can be just as hard on your car battery?Due to the increase in humidity, higher temperatures, and increased travel, you could find yourself replacing car batteries more frequently. To avoid this, make sure to keep your eye on your car battery. Have a spare just in case. If you find your battery is going, get a jump and have your car taken to your local auto mechanic for battery service.

#2 Flat Tires

Many people find the summer season the best time to travel and vacation which means more traffic on the roads and more litter. High temperatures can heat up the road surface. The combination of these can affect your tires adversely, causing damage and even blowouts when you least expect. Before you hit the road, assess your spare tire and make sure it is full. These spares can save you time and trouble, however, it is important to remember these are temporary measures and meant to get you and your vehicle to safety.Once you have a spare on your car, you can finish your journey and get your car to a shop for replacement.

#3 Cooling System Failure

Your cooling system can refer to two different parts of your vehicle. Your engine requires a cooling system to ensure the engine does not overheat. Overheating engines can cause extensive damage and render your car useless. Your air conditioner keeps you and your loved ones cool. When this system fails, it can cause extensive damage to you, leading to heat stroke and even death. The best thing to keep these systems running is to have service on your vehicle prior to any traveling. If your engine overheats, ensure you do not continue to drive it. Give your vehicle time to cool down if possible and have it towed to minimize damage.
