Beautiful summer weather is finally upon us, which means that many of us are gearing up for summer travel and road trips. But before you take your vehicle on a long drive, it’s a good idea to make sure that everything is running smoothly. That’s why we are featuring a Get Ready for Summer Checklist all month long! Each week we’ll tell you about a part of your vehicle that you should have checked out this summer to ensure your drives are comfortable and safe.
Checklist Tip #1: Have your A/C System inspected.
Without A/C, your rides can be hot and uncomfortable. Our A/C System Service checks for leaks or problems with your system, and our trained technicians can recharge it if you’re low on freon.
Checklist Tip #2: Check your windshield wipers.
When a summer storm hits, you don’t want to be left with wipers that can’t clear your windshield effectively. At Jiffy Lube®, we can take the hassle out of picking out the right ones by taking care of it for you.
Checklist Tip #3: Have your engine belts checked for wear.
Many people don’t think about engine belts when they think about vehicle maintenance, because they don’t need to be changed very often. But ensuring that they are changed per your manufacturer’s recommendations prevents your belt from wearing to the point that they might fail. Your neighborhood JIffy Lube® can inspect your belts for wear, and let you know if they’re in need of replacement.
Checklist Tip #4: Inspect your air filter.
Your engine air filter helps to keep dust and dirt from getting inside of your engine. When this filter becomes clogged, your engine has to work harder to draw in air, which can make your fuel efficiency decrease. Stop by your neighborhood Jiffy Lube® to have your engine air filter inspected for free, and replaced if needed.
Checklist Tip #5: Be sure to change your oil!
Following the manufacturer recommended oil change interval helps to prolong the life of your vehicle, and keep it running smoothly for years to come. Our Signature Service Oil Change® helps keep your vehicle in tip-top condition, and our no-appointment-necessary policy means that you can have your oil change done on your schedule.
