That Time of Year | Wichita Auto Care

Some car repairs are more common at certain times of the year. But, whatever time of the year, Tracy’s Automotive can help you keep your car running and get it back on the road if it needs to be repaired.

You were thinking of driving to Winfield for a weekend of music to honor Memorial Day. But you didn’t because your car was acting funny and you hesitated to drive it anywhere, even around town.

It’s a shame that you were unable to go to the concert. But, did you know that the problems you’re encountering with your car are likely different than the ones you dealt with in the dead of winter? That’s right, the type of car trouble you’re most likely to deal with depends on the season.

“The time of year also weighs heavily on cars,” according to “Different seasons can stress different systems, or make a problem more noticeable. For example, constant use of air conditioning during warm summer months might reveal a compressor problem. In fall, problems with the heating system may become apparent.”

The most common repairs needed in springtime are problems with the motor that opens and closes electric windows; broken trunk latches; malfunctioning timing chains; issues with brakes, steering and suspension; and wheel speed sensor problems.

In summertime, says, the most common complaints concern auto air conditioning, windows, cooling fans, timing chains and fan clutches.

That doesn’t mean you won’t have other automotive problems or need auto repairs in other systems, but it does give you an idea of what to check before the season starts and before you encounter a breakdown.

Of course, the best way to avoid repairs or breakdowns is to make sure you are diligent about regular, preventive care all year round. Having a regular Wichita auto care mechanic you trust also helps because they can become familiar with you, your driving style and your car.

If you don’t have a regular Wichita auto care specialist, then it’s time to get to know the auto care technicians at Tracy’s Automotive.
