The arrival of the summer season calls for extra precautions towards your cars.
Problematic car situations are common in Qatar during the season; therefore, the ILoveQatar.net (ILQ) team is here with a few tips to keep you and your car safe.
Note: This guide only offers precautionary tips and is not a full-proof solution to car problems.
A common occurrence in summer in Qatar is engine overheating. Keep a diligent eye on the thermostat to make sure it isn't indicating too much heat. Watch out for any smoke that may be appearing from your bonnet.
Keep a frequent check on the coolant fluid and radiator water to ensure your car has enough liquid to keep cool.
Don't wait for your car to start blowing out hot air; take your car for an AC inspection to make sure there is enough gas to keep it cooling.
If your AC isn't working or is blowing hot air, it could be because of other complex car issues which would require a detailed expert inspection.
Do a regular check on the air pressures of your tyres and any possible damages that could cause a flat tire or burst due to high temperatures triggered by friction.
In order to maintain overall engine health and make the best use of your car, regular oil checks and changes are necessary as the summer heat thins out the oil.
Along with summer comes sandstorms every now and then, which means that your air filters are likely to be clogged with dust.
This may affect the health of the overall air circulation within the car and the well-being of the car user. Therefore, an air filter change or clean-up is recommended.
Try to keep the interior of your car clean and clear at most times while making sure to avoid leaving any unnecessary objects behind in the car.
Food that may decompose, plastics that may melt and damage your car or any flammable items should be taken out if the car will be left in the heat for a prolonged duration.
Try your best to keep your car parked in a shaded parking spot as much as possible and even place a sun shade inside your car to prevent any sun damage to the exterior paint and interior materials.
