TULSA, Okla - The heat can really take a toll on your car.
When it's this hot and this dry cars need special care.
Frequent oil changes and belt checks are a must. Batteries die faster than everyone thinks they will.
And make sure fluids are full.
Joe Harwell is a Manager at Robertson Tire in south Tulsa.
He says in this weather it doesn't take long for cars to succumb to the heat: “We’re doing more cooling, more air conditioning work…anything temperature will affect. Tires as well.”
You can mitigate some of the effects of the sun by having your windows tinted.
Coolant was a popular item at several of the Tulsa auto parts stores we visited.
