Summer is around the corner in Acton MA & Middlesex West Boston. Planning a summer vacation or road-trip to the White Mountains of NH (up the Mount Washington Auto Road (pictured)), Cape Cod, Maine or beyond?
Is your car road-trip ready? Sal’s Auto & Truck Repair Acton MA recommends having your car checked out by a trusted local mechanic a week or more before your trip to keep you safe on the road this summer season!
With summer weather, it's time to roll down your windows and really ‘listen to your car’ or have someone else drive it to check out any car noises (you may be used to) to prevent a bigger problem down (or on) the road. Sal's Auto performs a Complimentary 60 point vehicle inspection with every service! Call Sal’s Auto & Truck Repair Acton MA for an appointment! Check our Sal's Auto Seasonal Car Care Specials.
A properly maintained car gets you where you want to go, and saves you money getting there. If you are planning to travel by car this summer season, take steps to avoid ending up on the side of the road. Make sure your car is in good shape so it won’t break down.
Here are 7 Tips for Safe Summer Car Travel courtesy of Money Talk News:
Overheating is the No. 1 cause of summer breakdowns, says the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE). Make sure your radiator is adequately filled with coolant at the right concentration — usually a 50/50 mix of water and antifreeze, but check your car’s specifications. Make sure your gauge doesn’t register too hot to avoid engine damage.
Your coolant is only as good as the hoses it flows through. Look for leaks, cracks, peeling or separation. If the hose is spongy or soft in even one section, consider replacing it before it fails and causes bigger problems.
The hotter the weather gets, the more important oil becomes. Oil helps prevent overheating by lubricating many moving parts. However, oil additives break down over time.
Hot weather can strain a battery. Test the battery if it’s more than 3 years old or if you see one of these telltale signs of a failing battery:
A marginally operating air-conditioning system may fail in hot weather, says the ASE. Put a thermometer in your car’s vent while the air conditioner is running and see how cool the air is getting. If it’s not cooling properly, you may try replacing cabin air filters that clean the air entering the heating and air-conditioning system in newer cars. Check your owner’s manual for location and how often they should be replaced.
However, if your air-conditioning system is suffering from a bigger problem — like a leak or loss of refrigerant — it’s likely time for a mechanic.
Your four tires offer a critical connection to the road, says the Car Care Council. Check them at least monthly. Low tire pressure adds rolling resistance, making it harder for the engine to move your car.
The right car maintenance can save you time and money and keep you traveling safely on the road this summer!
Even after rotating and balancing your car’s tires, why do your wheels and tires still shake? It may be that traditional wheel balancing isn’t enough to correct your car’s vibration issues according to auto repair experts at Motorweek: "With newer tires, minor automobile tire and wheel problems can be amplified into the car – and you feel them in the ride! "
Sal’s Auto & Truck Repair is among a select number of auto repair shops in the Acton – Concord – Metrowest Boston area that uses Hunter Road Force Touch advanced wheel balancing technology to correct your car vibration issues –extending the life of your tires & dramatically improving your ride.
