Staycation? Here Are Five Ways to Help Your Car Survive Extreme Heat
Wednesday, 13 July 2011
Many people choose to spend their vacations close to home and the heat of the summer can really take its toll on the family car. For this reason why AAA has compiled a list of 5 things people can do to help protect their car from extreme heat. The first of these relates to the car battery. The summer heat can do a number on a car battery and if the battery is more than 3 years old, then it should be tested to make sure it has enough life. It should also be mounted firmly in place and kept clean of corrosive buildup.

The second tip is to ensure that your engine coolant is flushed out and replaced regularly and that it is always topped up to the right levels to ensure that your engine is kept cool even in the hottest temperatures. Third, make sure your tires are not under-inflated as this may make it easier for them to blow out. Fourth, ensure that all vehicle fluids are topped up and replaced regularly. Finally, ensure that your air conditioning system is working properly. It not only makes the drive more comfortable, but can also help keep the driver more alert, which is important for everyone.
