Summer Car Care at Velde Ford Pekin
PEKIN, Ill., – Summer has arrived in Illinois and we know what that means! Time to hit the road for those summer travel plans. With that in mind, we’ve put together our new Summer Car Care at Velde Ford Pekin pages. We know you might get lost in the excitement of summer vacation, but don’t forget to keep your vehicle up to date on its maintenance. In our new pages we’ve outlined some of the basic maintenance you should keep up with on your car during the summer season, including your cooling and A/C systems, cosmetic damage fixes, exterior lights, fuel system, and sun protection. If you’re planning any trips this summer, it’s crucial to keep your car ready to travel! We want to make sure you and your passengers reach your destination safely and comfortably. Check out the pages below:
Cooling and A/C Systems: Here we go over the importance of your cooling and A/C systems in your car. We outline some warning signs to look for that could mean your cooling or A/C systems aren’t working properly. The cooling system keeps your engine from overheating and the A/C system keeps you cool on the road. Don’t get stuck in the hot weather due to unchecked cooling or A/C systems.
Cosmetic Damage: On this page we talk about why it’s easiest to fix cosmetic damages during the summer. We run through some common cosmetic fixes that need to be made and why it’s important to the life of your vehicle to have them fixed. Many cosmetic damages can cause rust, which greatly decreases the value of your car. Save yourself precious time and money by fixing cosmetic damages as soon as you can.
Exterior Lights: Here we go over the different types of exterior lights that are found on your vehicle and why you need to keep them in good working condition. Light maintenance often gets overlooked when it comes to routine car care, but exterior lights play a huge role in keeping you safe on the road. We discuss different types of headlights and how you can change them yourself at home, as well as an easy way to make sure your exterior lights are working properly.
Fuel System: On this page we go over what your fuel system does for your car and the different components that make it up. We discuss some warning signs that may mean your fuel system is working inefficiently and why it’s important to maintain your fuel system in your vehicle. Gasoline is the main source of power in your vehicle. If the fuel system isn’t working properly you could be causing expensive damage to your vehicle. If you notice the warning signs we mention, don’t wait to have your fuel system serviced.
Sun Protection: On the Sun Protection page, we talk about some tips and tricks for protecting your car from the harmful UV rays of the sun. We go over the different types of damage that can be cause by the sun and how you can prevent them from occurring.
