Most of these are operated at authorized service centers or suppliers. However, depending on the size of the cars coming to these centers dealers may not be able to provide the necessary care and attention to your car.
Getting stuck in slow moving traffic can make your car’s temperature too high and cause more inconvenience. In the long run, this exposure to extreme temperatures will damage your car and speed up its aging process.
Just like your ways to overcome the heat, there are steps that will help your car to cope with the highest temperatures in India this summer. Most of these are operated at authorized service centers or suppliers. However, depending on the size of the cars coming to these centers dealers may not be able to provide the necessary care and attention to your car.
Here are some areas that require the car owner’s undivided attention:
Although torque level plays an important role, tires are one of the most neglected parts of a car. Vehicle owners forget to check tire pressure regularly. In fact, unfortunately, some employers do not even know the recommended stress levels. This game is especially destructive in the summer, because bad inflation can destroy a car tire in a very short time.
Poor tire pressure management on a hot day can ruin your sidewall, as soft rubber is more likely to be damaged. On bad roads, it can cause tires to explode. This is caused by excessive bending or ‘pumping’ of the side wall of the soft tire; It heats up like the outside of a circulation pump, so the rubber is soft and long, making it an easy barrier to snatch air. So, in the summer, increase your tire pressure to 3-5 pc and store your tires carefully.
It is important to remember that external tire pressure varies with temperature. For every 10 degrees decrease in temperature, it decreases by 1 pc. When the tire heats up throughout the day, it affects the air inside the tire, which develops when heated during normal flow. It is a good idea to check tire pressure when it is very cold in the morning, if you need an accurate reading, remember to do this once every two weeks.
In summer, the car’s AC takes on more loads. As we all know air conditioning systems are service intensive. Compressor oil must first be obtained to help protect the unit; there are often cooling leaks, and dust and dirt can overload and damage the system. Therefore, check the AC unit of your car with a qualified technician before the summer heat.
A common summer complaint from car owners is that it takes a long time to cool their car’s air conditioner cabin. No matter how powerful your AC unit is, it will take time for all the heat to get trapped in the car. If your car is parked in the sun all day, its indoor temperature will drop by 10 degrees or more.
Radiator and fluids
Everyone and everything needs constant fluids in the summer. A good quality air conditioner is one of the most important fluids to keep your car warm. In fact, the most common cause of vehicle breakdown in the summer is overheating of the engine due to inadequate cooling. Check your car’s cooling level and keep it on top if it is low. If your car is more than three years old, service the radiator in the summer – while you are in it, check for any leaks. Make sure you are using the right air conditioner. Using an inexpensive one may seem like an attractive option, which can cause problems in the long run.
Engine and transmission oil
Heating the engine oil will cause you to burn. Nothing destroys engine oil quickly; this is especially true if your car is already old and has a little less oil. So check your engine-oil level regularly and come up with the right oil first. Alternatively, you can filter the engine oil and use a high heat-resistant grade, which is designed to retain its viscosity and reduce wear and tear under extreme operating conditions. Also check the fluid level of the power steering, brakes and transmission units, as they may have weak connections.
Pipes and belts
While running, the car’s engine bay reaches high temperatures. It is important to change parts as soon as they are worn to a certain level. Otherwise, they will not tolerate high operating temperatures. Components such as pipes and belts are very fragile because they are made of rubber compounds. Once hardened like a rubber hose, it takes some time until it breaks. Physical examination is very effective in this regard. Check all clamps and clips, keeping in mind that creating normal pressure can cause loose clamps.
Excess heat shortens the life of the battery so that the liquid inside evaporates faster. This accelerates the chemical reactions in the battery, which can lead to high charges. Check if the battery is charging at the correct rate. Check for any damage to the battery terminals and make sure they are dust free and all cable connections are secure. Most new cars come with zero maintenance batteries; If your car uses a battery that requires regular filtered water top-ups, check the liquid level regularly during the summer.
We usually only associate good coat wax or polish with makeup. This is wrong a good polish will go a long way in protecting your car paint from overheating. This is because it creates a protective wax layer on the paint that reflects a significant portion of the sun’s heat. So polish your car before summer comes and if possible, choose a polish that will add a protective layer to your paint.
Daytime temperatures in some parts of our country can reach up to 45 degrees Celsius. Excess heat affects vehicles. Unless the plastic and rubber parts are damaged, fluids can make it difficult to cool the engine. We recommend going to an independent garage and personally participating in the process of controlling your car to the heat wave.
