With the winter months in our rear-view mirror, it is time to begin preparing for the summer months in Millersburg, OH. Before you know it, the sun will be shining bright and temperatures will reach above 70 degrees. Take into account these tips from Village Motors Inc. as you prepare your car for summer.

Before you even need to use the air conditioning in the car for the first time, it is a good idea to inspect it for worn or damaged belts. The compressor will only run if the belt is still intact. If the belt is missing or damaged, the compressor will not run and you will not have cool air in the car during the heat of summer.

The next tip is to check the cooling system of the car, which should only be done if the car has not been running recently. Our technicians will check the radiator and hoses under the hood for cracks and leaks. Then, we will ensure that all of the connections are tight and add antifreeze or coolant if need be.

Living near Wooster, OH means your car will have suffered through a difficult winter. If you had winter tires installed on your car, now is the perfect time to have those switched with summer tires at our service center. Summer tires have a less aggressive tread and shorter sidewalls.

If you plan on towing a boat or camper this summer in your RAM 1500, inspect your vehicle and the trailer before the first tow to make sure all connections are tight and the lights work properly.

Our experienced technicians will make sure that your car is up to speed for the coming months so you can enjoy the summer that’s ahead. Visit our service center today or give us a call to speak with someone from our service department.
