How to care for cars in the summer!


"How do you feel about a car, so it serves in response" - the truth has long been known and verified in practice. We offer to learn more ... much more about what they are - rules of operation and car maintenance in the summer season!
1. Regular washing
Yes, so, wash the car in the summer often! Now there is no salt and no dirt, as in winter, but there are bird droppings, spatula, splashes of bitumen, dirt, dust, juice from lime. All these contaminants can damage paint and varnish coating. Even if they are chemically inactive and do not corrode it, at least the paint can burn out unevenly and the machine is covered with stains.
How often should you wash your car? At least once or twice a week, "wash the dirt" and once a month, a full wash.
2. Avoid poplar
Poplar fluff, heat, July ... Fluffy poplar sedimentation highlights sticky yellow resin, which is very difficult to wash. In addition, he clogs the heatsink and worsens the cooling of the motor.
3. Replace the filters
Namely the air filter of the engine and salon. In the summer, a lot of dust and they quickly clog up. Lack of air can cause incorrect operation of the engine, and in the cabin will not be sufficiently good to cool the air conditioner.
4. Hide from the sun
If you leave the car for several hours under the scorching sun, then you can come back to see the plastic trim of the cabin, which has already changed the shape. And the electronics may refuse to overheat. So try to leave the car in the shade, but rather buy a cover - and the car does not overheat and will have additional protection of the body from the same litter, down and lime.
5. Cool to the extent
Use air conditioning moderately. Do not do in the cabin North Pole, when on the street Sahara. It is harmful to your health. In addition, the air conditioner - an additional load for the engine, with it he quickly heats up in traffic, it will be worse to pull and gasoline will eat more. The climate system before the season should be served and cleaned - so that there were no unpleasant odors.
6. Do not fill the full tank
Some even advise to fill it no more than 50%. We believe that it is optimally about 3/4 capacity. The fact is that on the heat the fuel expands, can leak and even flare up.
7. Battery
The heat has a very negative effect on its resource. Control the electrolyte level and, if necessary, pour distilled water.
8. Tires
More often control the pressure, worn tires can even explode. This will require a combination of high temperatures, which leads to increased pressure and impact, which on our roads for a long time to look for is not necessary.
9. Brake
Actual especially if you are moving on mountain roads. The mechanisms themselves (discs, pads) can overheat, they can boil the brake fluid. To avoid this, do not turn off the clutch in the descents (use engine braking). And the liquid should be changed if it is already 2 years or more.
