Is your pickup ready for hot weather? Here in Fort Stockton, temperatures can get quite extreme, so use these tips to protect your truck from summer’s worst heat.
Under the Hood
Your cooling system is paramount to keeping your engine
running smoothly in the Texas heat. Have the coolant drained and redone, as
well as other engine fluids topped off. Running the air conditioning in summer
gives your battery a workout, so make sure it’s operating at its full potential.
Consider replacing the battery if it’s an older one.
UV rays heat up your truck’s interior, causing the
upholstery to fade and even cracking your leather seating. Whenever you can,
park in the shade to prevent unnecessary damage. If you can’t do that, get a
sunshade to keep UV rays off the dash and front seats, and install seat covers to
Heat can cause the pressure in your truck’s tires to go
down. Check your tire pressure often to avoid underinflation, which can lead to
blowouts. Meanwhile, the sun’s rays can damage the outside of your truck, too. Consider
a bed liner to protect the bed, and apply a coat of wax to act like sunscreen,
putting a layer between the sun and the paint job.
