4 Tips to Help Your Ford Beat the Summer Heat

Now that summer's here, it's important to make sure that your vehicle is safeguarded from the extreme temperatures. Here are some suggestions to help you keep your car running in peak condition throughout the dog days:

  • Inspect your vehicle on a routine basis.Check the tire pressure when your vehicle hasn't been driven for at least an hour and is parked in the shade. Next, check the battery for any wear or corrosion -- high temperatures can speed up corrosion and drain the battery's fluid. Lastly, check the coolant levels and keep the coolant system is filled.
  • Pay attention to your warning lights, especially the battery warning light. If it stays on after you start the vehicle you may very well have a problem with your alternator.
  • Lighten the vehicle's load. The heavier your car, the more strain for a transmission that's already combating the heat.
  • Add a layer of protection to the exterior by giving it a fresh coat of wax or sealant, and take care of the interior to help preserve its appearance while you're at it.
