  • Three Ways To Prepare Your Car For a Road Trip

  • Going for a long road trip is the best way to test your car. But, it is

    important that the car is in perfect condition because even the minutest

    problem like imbalanced tire or worn out windshield wiper can yield to a

    lot of problems.

    Performing an under-hood check:

    The first thing to notice and check before you plan for the trip is to check

    under the hood. There are many areas under hood that are prone to leaks.

    See if there is any leakage. Check whether or not the battery terminals are

    clean? Also, see if the drive belt is wearing out or not.

    Check your car owner's manual:

    Do not forget to place the owner's manual in the glove box. The owner's

    manual is one of the most important things as it contains all the relevant

    information like how to change the flat tire to how to tow a trailer.The

    owner's manual also has information about when to refill the engine oil

    and other necessary fluids.

  • Check engine oil:

    One thing that should not be missed is to check the engine oil. Park your

    car on a leveled area, warm your engine and stop it.
