At least once every other oil change, inspect, and if needed, replace the air filter. When air filters become clogged, tiny dust particles escape into the intake and enter the engine. Dry weather can make for dusty roads; therefore, you will undoubtedly gather dirt more quickly here than elsewhere.
Tip # 10
Air conditioning is key when it comes to operating a vehicle in the summer. If your vehicle’s air conditioning isn’t working correctly, bring it in for service. The summers can be hot in many states across the United States, and air conditioning is not only a luxury but a necessity. In addition, the AC system is supposed to be entirely sealed and never leak; therefore, if it does, it needs to be fixed right away.
Tip # 11
Check the belts and hoses for wear at every oil change and before any lengthy road journeys. As a precaution, we recommend having a backup with you on any road excursions. Also, check the belts and hoses for softness, tears, cracks, or blisters. Staying on top of them and replacing them before they fail is better for your engine and budget.
