We’ve had our fair share of heat waves in Mid-Missouri this Summer. A record-breaking June is sure to be followed by a record-breaking July, and if your car isn’t keeping up with the rising temperature, you may be looking for some guidance. Below, we have an easy-to-follow guide on the Summer services your car may need.

5 Services To Schedule This July

  • AC Services. If your AC is out, and you’ve made it to July without touching it, that’s impressive! But here in Missouri, we still have some hot months to go. Check to make sure your AC is working how it should. Something could be wrong if it’s not cooling down your car, giving you the correct airflow, or making your commute cooler. You may have a coolant leak, need a part replacement, or need some new refrigerant. Here at The Auto Shop in Jefferson City, we offer the 1234YF Air Conditioning Refrigerant required to go into vehicles. 
  • Cooling System and Radiator Services. Your radiator serves your vehicle by taking the excess heat from the engine and displacing it, making things under the hood a little cooler. If the radiator or cooling system needs some help, then the summer months will double time on the adjustments your vehicle has already been making. Look for your vehicle overheating, low coolant levels, or a strange color on your radiator. 
  • Wheel Alignment. The Summer can be tough on your tires, especially if you’re constantly on the hot asphalt or taking your car road-tripping. Ensure your wheels are correctly aligned every 6,000 miles or every other oil change.
  • Oil change. Oil changes are essential to the functioning of your car. Though they may be the last thing on our mind if the AC is out or our cooling system is on the fritz, it’s still important to schedule your oil changes. Speaking of oil changes, don’t forget your essential maintenance this Summer! 

The fifth service you should schedule this July is the one you’ve been putting off–you know, that one. Maybe you have some computer diagnostic stuff going on, your coolant is leaking, or your check engine light has been on for a while. Regardless, now is the perfect time to make it happen! The Auto Shop would be happy to guide you through the process and help you prioritize your vehicle's needs with a digital vehicle inspection.
