Top 5 Tips for Indianapolis, IN Drivers in the Summer

  • A/C Inspection: When the warm weather comes in, you want to make sure you can stay cool. We perform a thorough visual and physical inspection of your A/C system, making sure refrigerant pressures are adequate, there aren’t any leaks, and that your serpentine belt is still properly able to drive the compressor. Any necessary replacements can be performed with our genuine Kia parts, giving you the best quality to keep you cool.
  • Tire Inspection: Now that the cold has withdrawn, your tires might need a little freshening up. We’ll check the tread to make sure you can grip the Indiana roadways, and we’ll also make sure your tires haven’t lost any pressure over the cold months. You’ll be rolling out of here in no time.
  • Battery and Light Inspection and Testing: From your headlights to your tail lights, external lights keep you safe driving at night and in bad weather. We’ll make sure you’ve got sufficient visibility and can signal your intentions to others, and then we’ll certify that your battery still has the capacity to start your car every time.
  • Cooling System Inspection: The weather isn’t the only thing that warms up in the summer. Your engine has thousands of controlled explosions happening every minute, so it needs a robust cooling system, especially when the weather gets warm.
  • Engine Performance Check: We’ll make sure your engine air filter is clean so that your engine can combust with the best of them, and we’ll check your cabin air filter while we’re there. We’ll also make sure your PCV valve is free of debris and buildup so that your exhaust can vent properly.
