Getting Your Car Ready For Summer

Certain auto inspection services help prepare your car to handle the increase in temperature during summer. At Santa Cruz Toyota, you will get certified technicians with experience in all types of auto services. Our location in Santa Cruz allows us to serve the cities of Aptos, Soquel, Live Oak, and Capitola. To get your car ready for summer, we can perform an inspection of the engine, A/C, cooling system, tires, battery, brakes, lights, and other key parts of your vehicle.



A/C System Inspection

The A/C system consists of several parts that require frequent inspection service. To get the A/C working at its best, we can check the filters, compressor, vents, refrigerant, and other parts. If the A/C of your vehicle is making a strange noise or not cooling as expected, it could be a sign of trouble. We can fix all types of issues with the A/C system.

Cooling System Inspection

The role of the cooling system is to absorb the excess heat from the engine and release it to the surroundings. We will check the coolant fluid condition, hoses, fan, and other cooling system parts. We can install OEM parts in case any replacement service is required.

Tire Inspection

For tire inspection, we will measure the tread depth and check for signs of uneven tread wear. Certain tire services such as tire rotation can help minimize uneven tread wear. If the tread is worn out or there are other types of damage to the tires, we carry new tires for sale at Santa Cruz Toyota.

Headlights and Taillights Inspection

We can check the overall condition of the headlights, taillights, high beams, and turn signals. If the bulb has gone weak or burnt out, we can replace the bulbs.

Engine Performance

The engine requires a regular oil change and filter replacement service. It also requires inspection of the PCV valve, spark plugs, and other parts to ensure it is in optimum condition.

Battery Inspection & Testing

The battery can come under additional stress with increased usage of the air conditioner and an increase in temperature. We can test the battery and perform a physical inspection of the wires, terminals, and battery case.
