Summer Maintenance Checklist

Summer Maintenance Checklist

As we welcome the warmer months in Ontario, ensuring that your vehicle is in optimal condition to handle summer road trips is essential. At Jim Thompson Chrysler in Kingston, Ontario, we want you to enjoy a seamless summer driving experience, so we have compiled a comprehensive Summer Maintenance Checklist to help you get the most out of your summer driving.

  • Cooling System Check

An essential part of summer maintenance involves paying close attention to your vehicle's cooling system. A fully functioning cooling system will prevent your engine from overheating in the scorching summer heat.

  • Battery Assessment

Canadian winters can be harsh on vehicle batteries. Consequently, a thorough battery check should be part of your summer maintenance routine. Check for signs of wear and tear, corrosion, or weak connections. Our skilled service team at Laurentian Chrysler will ensure your battery is in tip-top condition.

  • Tire Inspection

Inspect your tires for wear and tear, particularly after winter's challenging conditions. Ensure they are inflated to the proper pressure to guarantee optimal fuel efficiency measured in litres per hundred kilometres. Our team can help you choose new tires from our diverse inventory if your current set is beyond repair.

  • Brake System Inspection

Regularly checking your brake system is crucial for your safety. Inspect the brake fluid, pads, and rotors to ensure they're in excellent working condition.

  • Air Conditioning Service

Remember to consider the importance of a fully operational air conditioning system during the sweltering summer months. Ensure the refrigerant level is adequate and the AC unit is functioning properly. If your AC system needs to be recharged, it might be a good idea to check for leaks before recharging it.

  • Windshield Wipers and Fluid Replacement

Finally, ensure your windshield wipers are in good shape, and your washer fluid tank is full. Clear visibility is fundamental to safe summer driving.
