Make Sure Your Car Is Ready For Summer

Many people get serious when it comes to winterizing their car before a cold front hits, but what about protecting your car from the heat? With the first day of summer just around the corner, it is important to make sure your car is ready for the sun.

Examine Your Tires

Your tires are one of the most important parts of your car. In order for them to perform their best, it is suggested that you get your tires rotated about every 5000 miles and check their pressure once a month. Be sure to examine your tires for uneven wearing, bubbles in the sidewalls, and missing balance weights as well.

Check Your Brakes

Your breaks get some serious wear when the roads get icy in winter and you cannot stop as easily as you would like. Brake pads can often go through thermal cycling as well when the hot heat of using the brakes meets the icy cold roads and puddles. When checking your brakes, look out for any wear, cracking, or discoloration and replace anything that may be worn.

Get An Oil Change

Be sure to check your car’s oil levels and color before summer and get it changed every 5000 miles or so. It should always be a dark amber color so if it ever looks black and funky, be sure to change it as soon as possible.

Make Sure The Cooling System Is Cool

Overheating is one of the most common issues that happens to cars in the summer. To prevent this from happening, you cooling system should be flushed and refilled about every 2 years. The radiator tank should be full and a coolant tester will let you know if anything needs to be adjusted for maximum cooling.

Replace Your Windshield Wipers

With all of the ice, snow, and sleet they cleared away during the winter, your wipers are probably pretty worn out. A dirty or streaky windshield can cause eye fatigue and limit visibility so it is important to replace your wipers when necessary.

I recently brought my car in to have the broken passenger window replaced. The guys at Frank’s were very professional and the prices were good compared to other places. I’d recommend to anyone. Thanks guys!

Couldn't ask for a better establishment! I been driving around with a cracked windshield for longer than I should have. Finally had am off day and dropped them off my car. I was running late to pick up the car and they were very accommodating. Some places would make you wait until next day. Reasonable straightforward prices. They have gained a customer for life.

Frank’s was great. They didn’t have my windshield in stock and had to order one, but they were ready for me the next day. The work was completed very quickly, and the staff were all friendly. The price was fair. Would go back again if necessary!

I am extremely happy with the service I received from Frank's Auto Glass Repair. The replacement took a few hours because of the business' excellent service that it is first come first served. I have nothing but good things to say about this business. I pray I do not need another one anytime soon but I will definitely refer family and friends for premier services!
