If you plan to take a road trip this summer, be vigilant about your car’s health! Nobody wants unpleasant surprises when they’re trying to have fun, so there are some things you should do to make sure you don’t break down during your trip. Here are four simple steps for making sure your car is ready to hit the road this summer!
Check the Connections
Take a look at your hoses and belts. If they look dry, damaged, and cracked, it’s time to replace them. You should also check the hose connections for signs of dirt or corrosion. All hoses and belts should be tightly connected to their respective systems.
Check the Fluids
Low fluids are an easy fix. Check your oil level, your windshield wiper fluid, your brake fluid, and your coolant. The last thing you want to do suffer performance problems due to something this simple.
Check the Tires
All of your tires should be properly inflated and have plenty of tread. If you see bald spots or bulges, it’s probably time to replace your tires. Uneven wear on tires can also be a sign of alignment issues.
