Cooling System Maintenance Services at Graff Bay City

Summer in Michigan means two things: road trips and hot weather. Before you pack the car, you’ll want to make sure your vehicle’s cooling system is working correctly. Your cooling system is a key component in your vehicle in the summer months. The cooling system controls the temperature of your engine, preventing it from overheating and breaking down, while also regulating the temperature of other components under your hood. It also manages the temperature inside the cabin to keep you and your passengers comfortable. If this system isn’t working properly, you risk your engine overheating and sweltering cabin temperatures. In the sections below, you’ll learn about the importance of each system and some warning signs to look out for.

Cooling System Summer Car Care Maintenance

Your vehicle’s cooling system regulates the temperature of your engine and other components under the hood. The cooling system distributes coolant through a water pump located between the engine and, with the assistance of the radiator, helps to form cooler air to lower the temperature of the engine coolant to maintain a steady temperature. High engine temperatures can cause serious damage to your vehicle, so if cooling system components are not working correctly, it needs to be serviced as soon as possible. Here are some of the signs your cooling system may need to be serviced:

Performing routine cooling system inspections and coolant flushes will keep your vehicle’s cooling system running great. We recommend that you bring your vehicle into our service center every 24,000 miles or every two years, whichever comes first, for a coolant flush.

Air Conditioning Cooling System Maintenance for Summer

Did you know that during the summer months the cabin of your vehicle can get up to 40 degrees hotter than the outside temperature? This is why your vehicle’s air conditioning is so important during the summer season. Your A/C system works by sucking heat from the air in the cabin, pushing it out of the vehicle through the radiator, and then drawing cold air through the evaporator into the cabin of the vehicle. Keeping your A/C system in working condition is the key to staying comfortable and avoiding overheating in the summer.

Here are some warning signs you should look out for with your air conditioning system:

If any of these warning signs occur with your car, truck, or SUV, bring your vehicle into our friendly service center at Graff Bay City and our team of ASE Certified technicians will take care of the problem. In order to keep your A/C system running properly all summer long, we suggest getting routine air filter checks. For more information on your A/C system take a look at our routine A/C services page.
