Is your calendar lined up with vacations or weekend excursions? Wanting to get off-road in a capable Toyota Tacoma? Our Toyota service experts at Centennial Toyota have a few tips to help you get your truck summer-ready.
Inspect Your Tires
When you‘re driving on rocky terrains or planning to do some towing over the summer, you want to make sure that your tires are up to the challenge. If you haven’t recently, now is a good time to rotate your tires, which helps avoid uneven wear. You’ll also want to check the tire pressure regularly. If your tire pressure is low, it won’t just affect your performance, you’ll also see your fuel efficiency plummet.
Inspect Your Trailer
It’s equally important to check your trailer before you tow. Are the tires properly inflated? Have you checked out your brake lights? Are you using the appropriate hitch? Towing can be dangerous if not done appropriately, so make sure you are prepared.
Change Your Oil
Changing your oil is an important part of keeping your Toyota Tacoma running efficiently. When your oil ages, it becomes dirty and thick. It won’t keep your engine clean or lubricated. This causes extra friction, which can seriously damage your engine. Plus, it will make your truck less fuel-efficient too.
Replace Your Windshield Wiper Blades
Off-road adventures will undeniably kick up a mess on your truck. Can your windshield wipers properly clear your windshield? If not, it’s time to replace your windshield wiper blades. Don’t forget to top off your windshield wiper fluid too.
