Road Trip Ready

Schools out for summer which means... ROAD TRIP! Right? A lot of us will be packing our bags and packing our cars and heading out to the great beyond. Before you get going make sure your car can get you there! Here are a few things to check before putting your car in drive.

1. Make sure the coolant in your radiator is up to the full line. To be safe, be sure your car is cool before doing this.
2. Have your oil changed before any long distance trip.
3. Top off your windshield wiper fluid.
4. Check the levels of your break fluid and power steering. I think we can all agree that these are very important.
5. Tire pressure. Get out that handy dandy tire gauge and check your PSI. We are aiming for 35. You also might try getting your tires rotated. I know you can't really do this one at home, but if its been a while it would be a great idea before putting a lot of miles on your tires.
6. Check the pressure on your spare, and if you don't have one its time to get one. Make sure your jack and tools are in good working condition.
7. Keep a bottle of water and a roadside assistance kit in the trunk just in case.

That's it! Pretty simple but incredibly important. If you feel like you don't have time to do all these things yourself give service a call and set up an appointment. You can even schedule to have your car cleaned while its here. Road trips in clean cars are much more enjoyable. Service: (940) 243-6233.
