Spring is here, friends! Time to break out the sunscreen, boogie boards, and beach towels. However, those aren’t the only things you should be preparing for the change in temperatures. Luckily for you, our Orlando Toyota Service Centers are here to help you prep your car for the upcoming warmer weather! Did you know that maintaining your car’s fluids is exceptionally important, especially in hot climates like we have here in Central Florida?
What routine auto service in Orlando should you schedule for spring?
You should definitely maintain your car’s fluids with routine auto service in Orlando all year long; however, it’s especially important to keep an eye on them when the temperature fluctuates. One super important thing to do is to get an oil change in Orlando if you’re due for one; if you’re not according to mileage or time, you should still check your oil to ensure it’s ready to take on spring weather and keep your car running in top notch condition!
Schedule an oil change today!
How do you check your oil? You can schedule routine auto service at our Toyota Service Centers in Orlando; you can also check it yourself by popping the hood at home! When you pull out the oil dipstick, you should see the oil level between the two markers indicated. It should also be a tan or caramel color. If the levels are too low or the oil is dark and dirty, you could be due for a change.
Oil changes aren’t the only auto service to take into consideration for warmer weather, though. Our Toyota Service Centers came up with another list of fluids to check and maintain as the temps climb!
- Coolant: this is a big one, considering the scorching summers that we face here in Central Florida. You should always make sure you have enough coolant in your ride. And don’t forget, it’s not just coolant that goes in the tank – it’s actually a mix of coolant and water for maximum functionality (about half and half).
- Brake Fluid: Thinking about hitting the road for Spring Break? Make sure your brake fluid is full – it ensures that you have a safe drive time! The container should always be about 2/3 of the way full and if it’s not, you may have a leak. Our Toyota Service Centers in Orlando are ready and waiting to check it out for you!
- Transmission Fluid: If the levels of your transmission fluid get too low, you may have a leak… and if you run out of transmission fluid or don’t have enough for functionality, you can do some seriously pricey damage to your ride. Get it checked out and make sure you’re ready to hit the road!
