The service center here at Folsom Lake Ford is ready to take excellent care of your vehicle all year round. If you’re wondering how you can best take care of your vehicle this season, our summer Ford service tips and skilled mechanics can help.

Check Your Battery

Your battery helps your car start up, so if it’s not working well you could end up stuck somewhere with a vehicle that won’t start. The higher temperatures during the summer months can also put extra pressure on your battery. That’s why it’s important to have our mechanics take a look at it.

Keep an Eye on Tire Pressure

Your tire pressure can fluctuate during the hot summer months. The heat can cause pressure to rise, which can result in over-inflated tires that can wear down faster.

Additionally, higher pressure can result in tires that don’t grip the road as well. Your tires could even be more vulnerable to damage in this state. So, check your pressure before you hit the road on a hot day.

Get Your Oil Changed

It’s always a good idea to get your oil changed during a new season. We’ll get you set up with fresh oil that will better protect your engine and keep your car running more efficiently. See our mechanics before you embark on any lengthy summer road trips.

Keep Fluid Levels High

We’ll also refill the other fluids you need to keep your car running smoothly. Whether you need transmission fluid, brake fluid, or coolant, our service center has it.

We can help you with all of your car maintenance and Ford parts needs. Visit our Ford dealership serving Sacramento and speak with our mechanics today. Before you know it, your car will be back in top shape.
