Summer Maintenance Tips  
 

Maintenance for Your Automobile in the Summer Months

Are you someone that likes to go out on summer adventures? If you are, Fiat USA of Scottsdale would like to offer our assistance for summer automobile maintenance. It’s a good idea that we check your vehicle to make sure everything is in good shape before you head out on the road away from home.

Having an Oil Change Performed

A routine oil change will remove the old oil from your engine. This is important as particulates will build up over time. These particulates can damage your engine if you don’t remove them periodically. As fresh oil is placed inside your engine, we will also replace the filter that’s likely contaminated with the old oil.

Checking All of Your Fluid Levels

When summer has arrived, the new weather patterns that are here have the potential to affect your fluid levels and quality. Your windshield fluid, coolant, power steering fluid, and transmission fluid are just some of the affected things. It’s important that your coolant is at its recommended level. Otherwise, your engine may overheat as it can’t maintain a proper temperature.

Monitoring Tire Condition

We like to check the current state of your tires before you start enjoying the summer months. We check your current air pressure levels, and we’ll also take a quick look at your treads. You want to have adequate tire tread left to maintain a good grip on the road while you’re driving.

Checking Your Car’s Battery

The longevity of your car’s battery can be compromised with the summer heat. This is the season that batteries most often fail. You can avoid a catastrophic event by having our technicians check your battery periodically.

If you need summer vehicle maintenance, contact us here at Fiat USA of Scottsdale to schedule an appointment. If you’re not sure what maintenance you should be scheduling, we would be happy to help you determine a proper maintenance schedule moving forward.
