Toyota Summer Maintenance Tips

Get Your Toyota Ready for Your Next Summer Roadtrip in Indianapolis, IN

Fall is when we get busy preparing for holidays and family, winter is cold, the roads get dicey, spring finishes out the busy season, and summer comes. Summertime is the perfect time to take a trip, be it local or across the country, and you need to make sure your Toyota is ready for those drives. At Tom Wood Toyota, we've put together a list of services we can provide to help you keep your Toyota road-trip-ready.


The Top Five Services You Need to Be Ready for Summer Driving

  • Battery Inspection and Testing: Batteries lose their ability to hold a charge over time, and weather fluctuations can hurry that process. We'll check your charge and give your battery a complete physical and visual inspection, making sure it'll start your car whenever you need it. We'll also check your exterior lights, like headlights, taillights, and high beams, while we're checking your electrical connections.
  • Engine Performance Check: To make sure everything's entering your engine correctly for combustion, we'll take a look at your air filters to see if they're still letting oxygen through as needed. Then we'll check the PCV valve, a vital component in venting combustion by-products, for corrosion, build-up, or debris. Your engine should be working at its peak if you've got the right inputs and outputs.
  • Tire Inspection: We'll check both your tread and pressure to make sure you don't end up with a flat or a blowout when you least expect it, and we're happy to offer any other services at our tire department if you so desire.
  • A/C System Inspection: This one is all about your comfort. A hot car, especially one left out in the sun, can become a miserable place to be for those driving and riding along, so we'll make sure you can control the climate with your A/C before you spend a lot of time in your Toyota.
  • Cooling System Inspection: Just like you need to keep cool, your engine also needs to stay cool, and the summer heat only makes that more difficult. Our technicians will ensure that everything from the thermostat to the radiator are working perfectly to prevent overheating.
