With summer months approaching, now is the time to get your vehicle ready to handle the heat. Below are three things you can do:
1. Get your AC inspected for leaks, clogs and cracked hoses. Refrigerant is the fuel for your AC unit. One leak in the system could deplete refrigerant levels and cause a malfunction.
2. Get your radiator inspected to ensure that tubes aren’t blocked and that there aren’t loose or leaking coolant hoses. A failing radiator could cause components in your vehicle to melt and produce smoke.
3. Check your tires. Hot pavement can cause tire blowouts.
