Here at Van Horn Chrysler Jeep® Dodge RAM of Manitowoc, we strive to be your one-stop-shop for all your automotive needs. From our team of talented Jeep, Chrysler, Dodge, and RAM dealers to our talented technical experts, we are always willing to go the extra step for our customers. In pursuit of that effort, we’re here to give you the full rundown of how summer heat can affect your engine.

At first glance, heat may seem to cause your engine no trouble. Engines tend to run hot, really hot. That said, there is a limit to the amount of heat they can withstand. In fact, your cooling system is tooled with keeping your engine at this sweltering yet optimal temperature. Unfortunately, the heat of summer can impose a new threat on your engine, heat that your cooling system cannot compensate for.

For this reason, we always urge our customers to have their cooling system looked at by a car care expert before the worst of the summer heat sets in. We also suggest having your air conditioning fully inspected. Your air conditioning is your first line of defense against interior cabin heat, and having this break on you can make for some pretty unpleasant driving.

Lastly, we always suggest that drivers have their tires looked at before heading out on that summer road trip. ;Heat can cause a tire’s air pressure to over inflate and the rubber to degrade, Your tires may be able to withstand a lot, but all it takes is one pothole or a stray nail to make the entire thing burst.

If you’re looking to have your vehicle inspected by a professional, you can look no further than our Chrysler, Dodge, RAM, and Jeep service center. At Van Horn Chrysler Jeep Dodge RAM of Manitowoc, we proudly offer a fully equipped technical team who are ready and willing to ensure you keep on rolling smoothly.
