Avoid summer breakdowns by checking your cooling system in the off season.Did you know that the greatest cause of summer cool downs is overheating? Or that in colder parts of the country, parts and fluids related to your cooling system are cheaper this time of year due to the seasonal dip in demand?

Here are a few tips to keep in mind to keep your car’s cooling system running well this summer. Also check the price of a cooling system check as being ahead of the rush in spring could save you a few dollars.

  1. Have your cooling system completely flushed and refilled. Your csr manual will give you a suggestion for how often.
  2. The level, condition and mixture of your coolant should be checked from time to time, according to the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence.
  3. Have the tightness and condition of drive belts, clamps, and hoses checked by a professional, even if you are used to doing minor maintenance on your car yourself.
  4. Never remove the radiator cap until the engine has completely cooled.
