4 Easy Summer Car Care Tips

Summer car care tips

Summer is in full swing, and if you want to keep your trusty vehicle in tip-top shape to help you take advantage of the fine weather, then you’ll want to follow these quick-and-easy summer car care tips:

  1. Your coolant system is critical. Make sure all your fluid reservoirs are full and fresh. While you’re at it, you may as well get your coolant hoses inspected.
  2. You’ll probably be blasting the AC quite a bit, so make sure it’s up to par! Check for Freon leaks by looking to see how much refrigerant is left in the system; if it seems low, have a qualified technician check it out. If your AC feels a little weaker than you want it, grab a quick AC recharger from an auto parts or big box-store.
  3. As temperatures change, your tire pressure will flux. Now is a good time to check your tire pressure and make sure your tire tread isn’t too worn for your upcoming summer road trips.
  4. Our final summer care tip is one you should adhere to every season: make sure you’re getting your oil changed! Summer heat will get your engine working over-time — don’t leave it out to dry with dirty, cruddy oil.

Any summer service you require can be completed right here in the service department of Nissan of Silsbee. Schedule an appointment today!

How to Fill Tires with Air

Filling tires with air is one of the easiest DIY maintenance tasks for your car, and it’s also one of the most important, especially during the winter. Cold air reduces your tire pressure, which makes your tires have worse traction, so they’ll slip more easily in wet and icy conditions. Follow these easy steps to filling your tires with air.

How to Fill Tires with Air | Silsbee, TXFirst, check your owner’s manual to determine what the proper PSI for your car’s tires is. Then use a pressure gauge to find out the pressure in each of your four tires. Locate the valve stem in the rim of the wheel, take off the cap, and push the tip off the gauge into the stem. If the number it reads is lower than your suggested PSI, add air to the tire.

Many gas stations have a spot where you can fill your tires with air if you don’t feel like buying your own automatic or manual air pump. Just make sure you bring lots of quarters. Park near the air pump and take the caps off all the valve stems, but don’t lose them!

Then, just like checking the pressure with the gauge, push the tip of the hose into the valve stem and fill the tire with air, stopping periodically to read the pressure again. Once your tire is at the appropriate pressure, replace the valve stem cap. Repeat with the other tires as needed.
