Synthetic Oil Changes and Other Summer Maintenance Tips for Your Vehicle

Our vehicles tend to need more attention during the summer. With trips to the beach, a possible road trip, and several other drives to the park your vehicle use increases and so does its maintenance needs. Properly caring for your car reduces the chance of any negligence problems and allows you to always have a durable vehicle. Let´s discuss some important maintenance tips that will have you running better this summer.

Avoid Driving Your Car With Low Fuel Levels

Never allow your engine to run very low on gasoline. When you drive your vehicle on low amounts of fuel you force it to reach deep and pull out gasoline from the very bottom. Since fuel deposits settle at the bottom of the tank they can get picked up and sucked into the engine when you force it to run on very little gasoline. The sediments that get picked up make their way into unwanted places inside the engine and they could mean trouble. If you are used to letting your tank get very low before adding gasoline you are slowly damaging your engine more and more and it is consisting you a lot more in the long run. At the very least, you will need to replace the fuel filters more often but the damage can go further than this and cause serious problems if too much sediment accumulates in your engine. Try to always keep your fuel tank at least a quarter full.

Replace the Coolant and Get a Synthetic Oil Change This Summer

The summer heat will require you to vigilantly replace all vehicle fluids as needed. Start by flushing the cooling system and adding coolant and making sure that coolant levels stay sufficient throughout the summer. If your engine lacks coolant it can start to heat up and face dangerous conditions. It is also incredibly important to make sure the lubrication system and motor oil are working well and are in good shape. The best thing to do is to get an oil change during the summer to avoid any heating problems and lubrication loss. Synthetic oil changes can do so much for your engine and will definitely prolong the durability of your vehicle. Amsoil synthetic oil is the most heat resistant motor oil and the one that best covers your engine against the summer dangers such as heat and excess friction. Get a hold of the right Amsoil products for your engine.

Check the Air Filter and Keep It in Good Conditions

Your vehicle also needs to get fresh air coming in. That is why the air filter plays such an important role. The air making its way inside the engine needs to be clean since the fuel requires the oxygen to burn efficiently. The air filter needs to keep the air clean and free of impurities and debris that could greatly harm the engine. Inspect the air filter to see if it needs to be cleaned out or replaced.

Change the Tires as Needed and Maintain Them Inflated

It is also necessary that you check the tires of your vehicle and change them when they start to wear out excessively. Worn out tires cause many problems and can even lead to dangerous accidents. The hot pavement and higher degrees lead can result in old tires wearing out faster and cracking more. Some tires are too worn out to just be patched and desperately need a replacement. It may seem like a heavy expense but think of the greater danger and larger expenses you will have to face if a flat tire causes you to be in an accident. Constantly check the air level of your tires. If your tire keeps deflating it could be leading you to spend much more money on gasoline.
