Get Your Citroën Ready for the Summer Heat

Summer is upon us, and as temperatures soar, we need to be mindful of the impact that scorching summer days can have on our cars. Heat can cause several of the systems of your vehicle to fail, including its engine and transmission, if these are not properly maintained to mitigate the risks. So how can you get your Citroën ready for the summer heat this year? Let’s take a look.

Start with the Tyres

Your tyres can suffer a lot of strain in hot weather and an overheated tyre will burst. Making sure your tyres have enough tread, are properly inflated, balanced and in great working condition will ensure that your vehicle handles better and enjoys better fuel mileage. It also makes your car quicker and more agile on the road. Remember that underinflated tyres will be prone to overheating and failure.

Your Citroën’s cooling system is critical during this time of year. If it isn’t cooling properly, your engine runs the risk of overheating. And quite honestly, that is the last thing you want to happen. It is one of the most common problems to occur for motorists during the summer months. When the summer months arrive, it’s always advisable to check the coolant levels as well as the condition of the cooling components. It might be time to have the cooling system flushed in order to restore peak cooling capacity.

Time for an Oil Change

Besides lubricating the engine, engine oil absorbs engine heat well. As the oil ages in your Citroën, it becomes less effective at lubricating the engine, and aiding it in staying cool. Check your owner’s manual for oil change specifications, and keep in mind when your vehicle’s next service is due.
