Ford Summer Maintenance Service

Summer Maintenance Tips

Summer is here and is expected to be a real scorcher, and we know that this heat can really crank things up when it comes to the importance of summer vehicle preparedness and maintenance throughout. Our certified technicians performing certified Ford services know that extreme heat and significant temperature change between winter and summer are serious limitations to many essential components with relatively short service lives. With warmer days before us, now is the opportune time to schedule much-needed summer maintenance for peak vehicle performance all summer long.


Summer Season Maintenance Essentials

  • Battery - Always make sure that your battery is in good condition. The heat can cause your battery to break down sooner than later.
  • Fresh Fluids, Oil & Coolant - Always make sure to keep your engine cool. Two of the most important fluids are engine oil and coolant/antifreeze when it comes to the right operating temperature.
  • Air Conditioning Performance Check - Check the current condition and performance of your air conditioning system. With leaking refrigerant being the #1 problem for the A/C, it is important to inspect the system before summer to ensure it generates a frigid breeze swiftly.
  • Multi-Point Vehicle Inspection - the single most important preparedness service, a multi-point vehicle inspection before summer is the best way to ensure overall preparedness for summer including all vital components.

Multi-Point Vehicle Inspection

While you should get your car, truck, or SUV serviced year-round at the specified mileage, it is doubly important to receive a multi-point vehicle inspection by a certified technician to ensure that your vehicle is working properly. An immobilized vehicle from poor maintenance is not only preventable but is a safety concern for us at Chapman Ford.

Don't Risk Putting Off Much-Needed Maintenance Before the Summer

Heat and temperature change between seasons are significant threats to overall vehicle reliability throughout the summer. You want to take every precaution possible to ensure that your vehicle is working optimally before you take it on the road during these incredibly hot months. Just like you take precautions when active outdoors on hot days, a vehicle benefits significantly from maintenance when operating in extreme heat. The consequences of ignoring summer maintenance include increased wear and tear, reduced reliability, poor fuel economy, rough engine idling, unpleasant driving experience, immobilized vehicle, and increased operational costs.
