5 Service Tips for Summer Driving

  • Change Your Windshield Wipers: We'll start with something easy that you can do at home. Summer weather around Rutland and all over the country can change in a moment's notice, bringing on heavy rain, hail and more. To ensure that your windshield is clean and clear, we suggest changing your windshield wipers at the start of summer.
  • Change Your Oil: The hot summer weather causes your motor oil to thin out, which can make it easier for your engine to get dirty. That's why we suggest getting your motor oil and filter changed in the summer.
  • Check Your Battery: High temperatures also take a toll on your battery, which means it's important to check-up on it frequently. Make sure there's no corrosion and check to see that it's properly fastened in the proper position.
  • Check Fluids: During the summer, your coolant levels are important to monitor to prevent overheating, but other fluids are just as important, including your windshield washer fluid and power steering fluid.
  • Keep Your Tires Properly Inflated: We encourage you to check your tire tread and ensure that your tires have the proper air pressure for maximized performance and efficiency.
