Living in Northwest FL, we experience periods of extreme heat during the summer months that can take a toll on your car or truck. Here are the three most common summertime car problems to watch out for:
- Engine overheating. Maintaining fluid levels, including motor oil and coolant will help protect your vehicle from overheating.
- Dead battery. Heat can cause the battery fluid to evaporate, which can result in internal damage to your battery. Keep an eye out for dry fluid residue and ask your mechanic to look into the battery charging mechanism.
- Tire failure. Pressure levels in your tires change with the outside temperature. To avoid inflation problems check your tire pressure every month especially in times of high temperatures.
