Getting Ready for the Warm Weather

Posted on March 28, 2013 at 8:12 PM
Well, despite the fact that it seems like winter refuses to end this year, the heat and humidity will be here before we know it.  Most of us remember to service the air conditioning in our homes, get the lawnmower tuned up, and restring the the weedwhacker, but, what about getting our vehicles ready for the summer?  Do you remember things like having your coolant tested, changing your oil, or having your a/c recharged?  Every year around this time I give our old truck a thorough once-over...I check all of the belts and hoses, test the coolant, and top off the refrigerant level in the a/c system.  When I change my oil throughout the warm months, I add a bottle of Lucas Oil Stabilizer or Marvel Mystery Oil to help retain the viscosity and lubrication properties of my engine oil in the extreme heat.  So, we want to know, what are your summertime vehicle rituals?  We'd love for you to share your tips and advice on what you do to help your ride "keep its cool" during the dog days of summer!  AND, as always, feel free to ask us any questions you might have...
