Summer is known for hot days and cool nights where friends and families come together for a time they’ll never forget. In order to get to a gathering, many summer drivers rely on their car. If your car isn’t in good shape, odds are you’ll find yourself (or your car) burning up. Here’s a few ways to keep your car cool during the summer from us here at Dick Dyer Toyota!
- Coolant – In charge of keeping your engine cool, it’s important to ensure you have plenty of coolant, also known as antifreeze. If you find your car is running low, just add more by following the instructions in your owner’s manual. It wouldn’t be a bad idea to check your oil as well since one of its main functions is to carry away excess heat.
- Windows – One of the more obvious ways to keep your car cool is to crack your windows while your car bakes in the hot sun. Doing so will allow hot air to escape.
- Air Conditioning – Hot air rises. Most drivers know that. By blowing air conditioning through the footwell vents upon starting the car, the hot air will be pushed up and out, leaving you with less time spent in the heat.
