Summer Car Maintenance Checklist.

Summer Car Maintenance Checklist.

Summer was made for road trips. At Yorkton Dodge in Yorkton, Saskatchewan, we're here to help you maintain your vehicle so that you can fully enjoy everything summer has to offer. To ensure you're ready for the road ahead and to help you avoid unpleasant surprises, we've put together a summer car maintenance checklist.


Cooling System

The cooling system plays a vital role in preventing your engine from overheating. Having the radiator hoses and belts inspected for any signs of wear or leaks is also essential. Our experienced technicians can flush and refill the coolant system to maintain its efficiency if needed.


Air Conditioning

Take the time to have the AC system tested and ensure it's cooling effectively. If there are any issues, such as weak airflow or warm air, it may require recharging or repairs.



Proper tire maintenance is vital for optimal traction and handling, particularly on wet roads. Regularly inspect your tires to ensure they have proper tread depth and show no signs of uneven wear. It's also important to check the tire pressure, including the spare tire, as warmer temperatures can cause fluctuations.



Hot weather can put additional strain on your car battery. Ensure the battery is securely mounted and not loose. If your battery is older or showing signs of weakness, such as slow engine cranking, we recommend having it tested or replaced for reliable performance.


Wipers and Lights

Good visibility is crucial for safe driving, especially during unexpected summer rain showers. Promptly replace any burnt-out bulbs. Well-functioning wipers are essential for maintaining clear visibility during inclement weather, so it is important to have them checked each season.
