3 Tips for Summer Car Maintenance
Brakes are essential to a properly working car and a safe drive through Colorado. There’s a lot of stop and go traffic on the front range, not to mention driving the curvy and steep mountain roads. It is important your brakes are ready to experience any quick stops and steep hills this summer.
Your brakes consist of several components that require regular maintenance such as the brake discs, brake pads and brake calipers.
The brake caliper is on the outside of your brake disc and every time you press on the brake, hydraulic fluid forces your brake caliper to squeeze down and rub the brake pads against the brake discs.
The result is friction between the brake pads and brake discs that result in slowing or stopping your vehicle.
AAMCO Colorado can help diagnose and fix any brake issues you may be experiencing and get you back out on the road in no time.
Depending on where you are, the temperature in Colorado can fluctuate dramatically in the summer season. It’s vital that your car’s cooling system is maintained so you can stay comfortable driving the roads this summer.
You may have found that your car a/c isn’t blowing as cold as it used to or maybe not cold at all.
You possibly need to recharge your car air conditioning or replace vital parts like hoses and air compressors. Maintaining your car air conditioning is beneficial to your vehicle so it can properly cool down and run correctly.
If you find that your car air conditioning is acting up, it may be time for some summer car care. AAMCO Colorado can help. Our team of experts can properly diagnose and address any issues arising in your car’s air conditioning and fix it up quickly so you can enjoy the Colorado summer days ahead.
Is your car battery ready for the throes of summer? A good car battery is essential to enjoying summer while driving around in your vehicle. If you decide to go out in the backcountry, it wouldn’t be good if you found your headlights weren’t very bright or that you can’t charge your phone in your car while at your campsite.
Summer heat is hard on your battery and it’s important to replace your battery according to manufacturer’s guidelines. If you find that your car is taking longer to start, the headlights may be dimmer or you need to jump the battery a few times, it is time to take a look at your car’s battery.
Don’t let your car’s dying battery interrupt your Colorado summer fun. Get proper summer car maintenance performed by AAMCO Colorado. We will diagnose and suggest what actions to take concerning your car’s battery.
