Car Maintenance Tips for Hot Weather

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, June 05, 2012

If you live in an apartment in Raleigh, you know that the summer in North Carolina is hot. You’re not the only one that is uncomfortable; your car is uncomfortable, too. In hot weather, an uncomfortable car can create problems for you. Here are a few maintenance tips that will help keep your car healthy and on the road.

Keeping your cooling system filled with clean, good coolant is a must. If you haven't had your radiator flushed this year, this is as good a time as any.  Your car's radiator and cooling system needs to be clean to be cool. Over time, your car's radiator builds up solid deposits which can clog the cooling system. Also, it is important to change your antifreeze seasonally.

There is a direct relationship between clean oil and keeping your car cool. Low oil levels or dirty oil can increase friction in your engine, making it work harder. The harder your engine works the hotter it gets. So, changing your oil helps out a lot.

If your air conditioner isn't blowing as cold as it used to, recharge your AC and make yourself more comfortable.
 
All of these are maintenance tips for your car can be done in one afternoon. Better to take these steps and be sure that your car is comfortable as you drive around Raleigh in the summer.
