Summer is a time for holidays and road-trips. It is also the perfect time to give your car some much-needed care and attention. This will help ensure you don’t have any issues during the journey.
Even in the UK, the thing we most associate with summer is hot weather. With this in mind, be sure to top up your coolant levels to prevent your engine from overheating. Excess heat can also put a strain on your air-conditioning, which may go wrong if it works too hard over a prolonged period.
In hot weather, your car may be on the scorching tarmac for longer periods too. Your tyres are therefore more prone to blowouts. To reduce this risk, ensure that you inflate your tyres properly. Under-inflation will put the tyres under enormous pressure – which can lead to blow-outs – while over-inflation increases the risk of hydroplaning in the wet.
To protect yourself and your car during the warmer months, our range of summer essentials will help you prepare for – and cope with – any situation. From coolants, to tyre inflators and pressure gauges, to fire extinguishers and travel accessories – Euro Car Parts has you more than covered.
