  1. Oil Changes
    Oil changes are crucial to the longevity of your engine. Engine oil helps lubricate engine parts, reduces wear, and dissipates heat throughout the engine to increase longevity.
  2. Coolant System
    The coolant system helps ensure your engine runs at a proper operating temperature. Be sure to have your coolant system filled, checked for leaks, and inspected for summer driving.
  3. Air Conditioning System
    The air conditioning system is one that we don't use throughout the year so it can often become neglected. If you don’t want to be stuck sitting in the sweltering summer heat, have your A/C system inspected and checked for leaks.
  4. Engine Performance
    During the summer months there is more dust in the air which can get into your engine. To ensure everything is performing as it should have your air, fuel, PCV, and other filters replaced at recommended intervals.
  5. Brakes
    Arguably the most important part of automotive safety, your brakes ensure that you can stop when you need to. Have your brakes inspected by a service professional if you notice grabbing, pulsating, noises, or longer stopping distances.
