Essential Car Maintenance for the Summer Months

Summer is a time for fun, sun, and road trips. As the temperature rises, it's essential to take care of your car to ensure that it's running efficiently and safely. Here are some essential car maintenance tips for the summer months

Don't Ignore Heated Wiring in Your Car

Check Your Tires

The heat can cause your tires to expand, leading to blowouts. Make sure your tires are properly inflated and have enough tread. Check for cracks or bulges in the sidewalls, which can indicate a potential blowout.

Change Your Oil

Regular oil changes are critical for maintaining your car’s engine. During the summer months, your engine works harder, and the heat can cause your oil to break down faster. Changing your oil every 5,000 miles or as recommended by your car’s manufacturer can help prevent engine damage.

Check Your Coolant

Your car’s cooling system is essential for preventing overheating. Make sure your coolant levels are topped off and check for leaks in the system. If you notice your car is running hot, pull over immediately and let it cool down before checking the coolant level.

Test Your Battery

High temperatures can cause your car battery to drain faster, so it’s essential to check your battery’s health. If your battery is more than three years old, it’s a good idea to have it tested by a professional.

Replace Your Wiper Blades

Summer thunderstorms can bring heavy rain and reduced visibility. Make sure your wiper blades are in good condition and replace them if they’re streaking or skipping.

Check Your Air Conditioning

A properly functioning air conditioning system can make all the difference during hot summer days. If you notice your air conditioning isn’t working correctly, have it checked by a professional.

Clean Your Car

Regular car washes can help prevent paint damage from bugs, bird droppings, and road debris. Don’t forget to clean the underside of your car to remove any dirt or debris that could cause corrosion.

Check Your Brakes

Summer road trips can mean lots of time on the highway, and your brakes are essential for keeping you and your passengers safe. Have your brakes checked by a professional if you notice any grinding, shaking, or squeaking.

Inspect Your Belts and Hoses

The heat of summer can cause belts and hoses to crack and deteriorate. Have them checked by a professional and replace any that show signs of wear and tear.

Prepare for Emergencies

Always keep an emergency kit in your car with items like a flashlight, jumper cables, first-aid kit, and a tire pressure gauge. It’s also a good idea to have a spare tire, jack, and lug wrench in case of a flat tire.


In conclusion, taking care of your car during the summer months is crucial for maintaining its performance, preventing breakdowns, and keeping you and your passengers safe. By following these essential car maintenance tips, you can enjoy a worry-free summer of road trips and adventures.

Booked my service on the MySyara app. Had my car picked up and serviced with no hassles and dropped off within 4 hours. The price was reasonable considering the service quality and quick turn around time.

Yasir Khan

As a personal trainer my schedule is tight. MySyara helped me schedule car washes while I was training my clients. The service was excellent and was a fan of not being in the usual car wash line.

Arun Tewary

I gave my Nissan Patrol to MySyara 2 days back for some maintenance work. They were so prompt professional and reasonable that it’s hard to believe. Entire operation was carried out by them in a spotless manner, right from picking up my car from my place, regular updates, suggestions and timely job completion and delivery. The team was simply superb, so courteous and friendly. Most definitely I will continue to use the services of MySyara always.

I needed my car battery changed and they sorted everything out for me in a matter of minutes. I was extremely impressed by how transparent they were and how they went out of their way to educate me about the different batteries and their impact on the car.

Their professionalism and honesty is refreshing and is an added bonus to their impeccable service.
