The old trick to escape the heat before stepping inside a vehicle is to keep the window open a little bit. This will help the car by letting out some of that hot air. Another trick is to open the car door and let out that hot air before you sit behind the wheel. 


There are some tools that you can use to help your car stay cool this summer. There are sun shades that you can use by hanging inside your vehicle. This will reflect the sunlight away from your vehicle’s interior. There are also solar-powered fans that can come in handy on a hot summer’s day.

    Engine overheating could have catastrophic effects on the performance of the engine. So, suitable initiatives should be taken to keep the temperature of the engine at an optimum level. Skipping engine oil replacement, lack of adequate amount of engine oil or any kinds of abnormalities in the cooling system could be some of the main reason behind the engine overheating. So, cooling system maintenance is crucial to prevent the engine overheating.

    In summer, the vehicles have to bear the scorching rays of sun. To prevent this, we should park our car in the garage at the day time also. We should cover the seats and steering wheel etc. with towel. We have to roll down the windows and open the car doors to allow the hot air to escape. We must check the level of coolant and if it is found to be low, then we have to top it off. Coolant flush is also required to add fresh coolant to the system which can cool the car engine more efficiently.
