Summer is in full swing here in Fort Worth, TX, and now that the heat and humidity are practically off the charts, you’ll want to make sure that your car is in peak condition. You likely already know that cold temperatures can have a negative effect on your vehicle, but the heat of the summer also can take its toll. Now is the perfect time to schedule a service appointment with our Acura service center to have our mechanics check out these aspects of your Acura car.


Coolant: Your car’s coolant is what prevents your engine from overheating. In addition to checking the level of coolant in your vehicle, our mechanics can inspect the state of the hoses and coolant reservoir, especially because heat can be extremely wearing on these components, which need to work a lot harder in the summer.


Wipers: The summer rainstorms require functional windshield wipers. If your wipers are leaving streaks across your windshield when it rains, that can affect your visibility and be a safety hazard, so they should be replaced.


Air-Conditioner: The last thing you want on your summer drive is for your A/C to stop working. Older A/C systems can leak Freon into the atmosphere, causing your cooling system to be ineffective (and hurting the environment). Every few years, you refrigerant needs to be cleaned out, and our mechanics can ensure that your A/C is in top shape.


Battery: The heat of summer can be more detrimental to your car’s battery than the winter cold. Our mechanics will ensure that all your connections are tight, that your battery has enough charge, and that there is no corrosion.
