High temperatures and vehicles simply don’t mix. As summer approaches, you should be aware of the most common causes of breakdowns that could leave you stranded on the road and in need of a 24/7 tow truck:
1) Engine surge
In the summer, vehicles are prone to exhaust recirculation issues which can cause blockages and breakdowns.
2) Evaporative leaks
High temperatures in the summer can cause increased gas tank pressure. This can deform the gas tank and lead to fuel vapor leaks.
3) Tire blowout
Increased road temperatures can lead to tire blowouts – particularly if you haven’t adjusted your tire pressure accordingly.
If you experience an automobile breakdown this summer, the important thing is to remain calm and call a towing company you can trust.
