Port Washington Area Drivers Keep Themselves and Their Vehicles Cool

To keep your vehicle from breaking down under intense temperatures, keep your eye on these crucial areas:


Car batteries can be affected by both hot and cold weather. To keep your battery free of corrosion, top it off with distilled water.


The best time of the year is unfortunately the worst for tires. Excessive heat can cause the air inside your tires to expand, which puts you at a greater risk for blowouts. To reduce the risk of a blowout, check your tire pressure regularly and keep your tires properly inflated.

Cooling System

Your cooling system works to regulate engine temperature for maximum fuel economy, power, and component life as well as emissions. If you neglect your cooling system, your vehicle can overheat and you'll find yourself broken down. Be sure to have your cooling system inspected by the certified technicians at our Honda service department at the start of the summer.


Your vehicle's radiator is the most important part of the engine's cooling system by helping to regulate temperature. To keep yourself from ending up broken down at the start of your vacation, make sure your radiator is filled with the fluid it needs to prevent overheating.
