During this summer vacation, a long road trip is sure to cheer anybody up. However, no matter what you drive, you should always put your car through a pre-trip check-up before hitting the roads if you don’t want to be stranded in the middle of a highway.
To make sure this doesn’t happen to you or anyone, here are some of the tips.
- Check the brake system and make sure the battery connection is clean, tight, and corrosion-free.
- Make sure àll your fluid levels are correct:
- Engine Oil
- Power Steering
- Brake and Transmission
- Hoses and belts are important for the proper functioning of a vehicle’s electrical system, air conditioning, power steering, and cooling system. Make sure they are in good condition before you go.
- Take a closer look at your car’s tires for tread depth and bulges. Driving a vehicle with underinflated tires reduces its fuel efficiency and if you notice uneven wear get your wheel alignment checked
- Caps covering fuel lubricants, gas need to be checked for irregularities. Caps in poor condition may cause oil and fuel to spill or evaporate.
These steps will not only give you the confidence of driving long distances, but also save you from any potential risk, far away from home.
In addition, a timely check-up also increases the life of your vehicle by giving you an indication of any potential problems, saving otherwise hefty repair charges.
