  1. Check The Tires
  2. You don’t want to deal with a blow-out during a long road trip. Be sure to check your tire sidewalls for any sign of damage. Also, make sure that each tire is properly inflated and has at least 2/32 inches of tread.

  3. Inspect The A/C
  4. Keep your vehicle’s cabin comfortable throughout the summer. Turn on the A/C and make sure that each vent blows cool air. Also, you will want to change the cabin air filter. Finally, look for any signs of moisture that may come out of your vents.

  5. Test The Battery
  6. Ever deal with a dead battery? That’s not fun. Check your battery’s strength and inspect the casing to ensure that it is free of corrosion. If you don’t have a way to test your battery, visit our service center for a battery inspection service.

  7. Check Engine
  8. Now is also a good time to check the engine to ensure that everything is working properly. That includes checking the spark plugs and the PVC valves. Additionally, you will want to replace the engine air filters to better protect your engine parts from contamination.

  9. Inspect The Cooling System
  10. You don’t want to have your vehicle overheat at the worst possible time. Check the temperature of your vehicle. In addition, look for any coolant leaks under your vehicle, under the hood, and inside the vehicle cabin.

  11. Check The Vehicle Lights
  12. Finally, you will want to check all the exterior lights. Turn on your lights and make sure that the headlights, taillights, and fog lights are all operating properly. Our parts center offers Ford OEM replacement lights if you need any replacement lights.
