With summer approaching, be sure your foreign vehicle is ready for long road trips, weekend getaways, and the daily driving over dusty roads. The ASE-certified mechanics at Autopotenza LLC specialize in repairing, diagnosing, and maintaining most foreign vehicles. Let us take a look at the areas of concern below, to ensure your vehicle is well-prepared for the hot temps and rainy weather of a typical Indiana summer.
No one likes to be without air conditioning while driving in muggy, humid weather. This can be a tricky system to check on your own. It’s best to have one of our ASE-certified technicians run a complete diagnostic on your vehicle’s air conditioning.
Don’t let your vehicle overheat in the scorching Indianapolis sun. Prevent these type of complications by having your cooling system flushed and refilled every 24 months. If the vehicle is not due for a flush, check the level and condition of the coolant and top off if necessary.
Oil and Filters
Keep your vehicle working at prime condition by scheduling oil changes every 3 months or every 3,000 miles. Due to the dusty conditions of dry, summer roads, be sure to check and replace all filters such as oil, air, fuel, and others, as needed.
Windshield wipers tend to take a beating from the winter ice and snow. Replace well-worn or damaged blades before the summer thunderstorms begin. Refill with washer fluid as needed.
Keep your battery lasting as long as possible with routine care and maintenance. Using rubber gloves, scrape away corrosion, clean all surfaces, and tighten all connections. Check fluid levels each month, if possible. If you’re concerned about the strength of your battery, schedule an appointment with us. Our expert mechanics will use our professional diagnostic equipment to check the overall health of your battery.
