Change Your Oil

Getting fresh motor oil maximizes performance and protects your engine parts from wear and tear, metal-on-metal grinding, and even failure. A fresh oil change can enhance your fuel mileage by as much as 2 percent, which will save you money and time on those long road trips.

Monitor Your Fluids

The variety of lubricants in your vehicle keeps it running cool even on the hottest of days. Have fluid levels inspected and top them off to help you avoid overheating.

Examine Your Tires

Properly inflated tires will help the performance of your vehicle, and prevent excessive tire wear. With the amount of driving you have planned in the summer, it also is best to check the wear of the tread and to see if there are any punctures.

Test Your Air Conditioning

It has been a while since you used the air conditioning, which is why checking this system is on our Ford summer service checklist because you want it running at its optimal level for comfort and performance. If it does not feel as strong, there could be a blockage, or you need to top off your refrigerant.

Inspect Your Windshield Wipers

Summer can bring torrential rain, and your vision of the road is crucial, so it is best to see if you need new windshield wipers before the next storm hits.
