6 Most Significant Tips for Preparing Vehicles in Hot Weather Check coolant level and resistance. Low coolant level can cause the engine to overheat. Make sure the coolant tank is filled to the correct level. Never open the coolant cover on the coolant to check the coolant level You can burn hot steam and boil the coolant Wait for the engine to cool down to check the radiator level not necessary even if the coolant level is maintained in the tank. If it39s too low add a 50/50 mixture of coolant and specific water. Don39t let the clean water flow into the coolant. The cooling effect of the water is better than the antifreeze but antifreeze is needed to increase the boiling temperature of the coolant and protect it from corrosion. 1. Check the Tires: Check for uneven wear corrosion cracks or tire damage. Check all Car Tires pressure levels including tire pressure. Low-pressure tires will heat up and increase the risk of explosion. 2. Make Sure the Fan is Turned On: When the air conditioner is at maximum temperature the electric fan must be turned on. No fan will cause the fan motor to malfunction relay or electrical failure. If the motor has a belt-driven fan with a fan coupling the corrosion of the fan coupling may cause the engine to overheat. Long-distance fan connections more than 100000 miles may be weak and cannot provide sufficient cooling. If fluid leaks from the fan coupling or there are little resistance to rotation the coupling must be replaced. 3. Check Air Conditioner of Car: Ensure that the air conditioner blows cold air and is working properly. Nothing is worse than the bad air conditioning that makes the weather bad. Before adding refrigerant the system must be checked for any leaks. 4. Check Battery Life: Most car batteries can be used for only 4 to 5 years. If the battery has been used for 5 years or more it may be replaced as soon as possible. For batteries hot weather is more difficult than cold weather because it increases the rate of evaporation of the liquid electrolyte in the battery this is not a problem for gel batteries. The date can be determined by reading the data icon on the battery. 5. Change the Oil: Replacing old dirty oil with fresh oil can enhance engine lubrication protection. It is a good idea to switch to a higher viscosity motor oil in hot weather especially for older long-distance engines. For example

you can switch from 5W-30 to 10W-30 10W-40 or 20W-30 when the weather is hot. Synthetic motor oil can better protect against high temperatures. 6. Check or Replace a Mop: The limited service life of the natural rubber wiper blades is one year or less. Exposure to sunlight intense heat and extreme cold will corrode rubber making it difficult and brittle. If you hit the wipers crackle or rub it is time to replace them.
