1. Check Your Belts and Hoses

You should look for cracks, leaks, and wears in your belts and hoses, ensuring that you get the best possible performance out of them. You want to make sure that you have no signs of splitting, fraying, or glazing. Additionally, you want to check for signs of overheating, which is a major issue with belts and hoses. This can occur at any time of the year, not just in summer, though it is most common then.

2. Check Fluid Levels

It’s important that you replace your vehicles fluid levels as often as necessary. This includes transmission, coolant, brake, power steering, and other important fluids. These are all important to keeping your vehicle running smoothly and preventing corrosion in key locations. Additionally, your vehicle will be able to regulate your engine’s temperature more easily.
