Hot Weather Is Hard on Your Car | Wichita Auto Care

Tracy’s Automotive can help you if your car can’t function in the heat.

We’ve been lucky the past couple of days in Wichita. Rainstorms have kept at bay the worst of the sweltering heat that’s enveloped much of the rest of the country. The cooler weather is expected to last through the next week, but more hot weather is on its way.

That’s bad news for people who suffer in the heat. It’s also bad news for your car. High heat can do some substantial damage to your car, according to

High temperatures can be especially hard on your battery, tires, gas,, oil, and coolant.

“The battery of your car is composed of both water and acid. When temperatures start to heat up, the water in the battery will evaporate faster, leaving the lead plates exposed. When the weather turns cold again, your battery will no longer have the amperage to start the car,” explains. adds, “A hot engine needs all the lubrication it can get, so making sure you change the oil when necessary is important in the summer months. If you are taking even more road trips in the summer, more frequent changes may be necessary. … Low coolant levels in high heat can kill your engine. Also be aware that if you have a damaged radiator or hoses, coolant may leak causing your engine temperature to rise even more. Always keep an eye on vehicle’s temperature gauge.”

Your best bet to making sure your car will stay in top form through hot and cold weather is to have a trusted Wichita auto care technician perform regular maintenance. If you don’t have a regular Wichita auto care specialist, then you need to meet the certified mechanics at Tracy’s Automotive.
