Summer Checklist

Hot weather creates extreme conditions for vehicles. The increased temperature can cause fluids and oil lubricants to break down. This could cause decreased performance, engine seizing and possibly permanent damage to your car's engine. In the late spring, after all danger of unexpected winter storms has passed, is the best time to get your car ready for summer heat.
