Most people have to Winterize their vehicles. Here in the beautiful Southwest we Summerize! If you haven’t summerized yet, it may be the perfect time, and more importantly, do it before you go on any summer travels. Viewing Arizona from the side of the road waiting for a tow truck is not the way to truly enjoy our great state.
- Did you know your belts and hoses are worn out after 3 to 4 years of working hard for you in extreme conditions? Knowing the age of your coolant hoses and belts is important. Even if they look good, it does not mean they are.
- Your cooling system should be tested and flushed each year before the start of summer because your coolant gets old and is picking up many contaminants that will damage your system.
- Don’t forget those windshield wipers that are now cooked onto your windshield, it’s time to replace them, the monsoons are coming!
We know that we are always harping about checking your tires and air pressure, the fluid levels and changing the oil, but they are so important we just feel we have to mention it one more time. These warm days beckon us to outdoor excursions and road trips, but anyone who has been broken down on a hot desert highway knows that taking a few precautions and being prepared is never something that you will regret. The old saying “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” is especially true when it comes to your car weathering the Valley’s summers.
