Prep for Summer at Our Service Center

May 16th, 2018 by

Here in the Thousand Oaks, CA region, we’re lucky enough to enjoy warm weather year-round. However, summer is still approaching, which means that we’re about to get the warmest and driest weather of the year. These are conditions that can take a toll on your vehicle, and at our RAM service center, our professional mechanics are ready to get your vehicle in top shape for the summer. Here are some of the summer-specific things that we’ll take a look at when you bring your car in for service.

Oil/Oil Filter Change

Intense weather conditions such as heat can put extra demands on your oil and oil filter. Keeping fresh oil in your car is important because it keeps your engine parts lubricated, while a fresh oil filter clears out unwanted fragments that have entered your oil system. A clean oil filter and fresh oil ensures that your Chrysler vehicle runs as smoothly and efficiently as possible.

Battery Check

It’s always important to ensure that your car’s battery has adequate charge, but summer heat accelerates the rate of fluid loss and the resulting oxidation of battery components. Heat has been named the number one cause of battery failure and reduced battery life in vehicles.

Check Tire Pressure

Changes in temperature can cause your tire pressure to fluctuate greatly. Before heading out on your summer road trip, make sure that your tires are properly inflated by having them checked out at our service center.

Brake Inspection

Having working brakes is one of the most vital aspects of safe vehicle operation. When dealing with the stop and go traffic around Thousand Oaks, CA, you’ll be requiring plenty of usage from your brakes.
