THE CHP SAYS PREPARE YOUR CAR FOR THE HOT WEATHER

That car fire in Morongo Valley reminds us that hot weather can take its toll on your vehicle. CHP Officer Joan Griffin offers these suggestions to prepare your vehicle…

The warm temperatures and summer travel put extra demands on both vehicles and drivers. Before any travel, check your vehicle’s radiator system. Many summer breakdowns happen because a car’s cooling system failed. Be sure your oil changes are current. Extreme temperatures can put more stress on an engine and dirty oil can cause damage or poor engine operation. Carry a roadside emergency kit with fresh water, food, a cell phone and charger, first aid kit, tools, flashlight, spare tire, car jack and lug wrench, jumper cables, and emergency flares or orange triangles. With the proper preparations, you can mitigate summer heat taking its toll on your vehicle.
