Summer is here which means one thing - road trip! However, without a few tips and some planning, a run road trip can easily turn into waiting on the side of the road for help to arrive. The best way to ensure that your road trip is successful and you and your passengers don’t waste valuable vacation time waiting for help to arrive is to pay attention to your vehicle health and maintenance and check off a few items before you travel.

Don't Get Stuck on the Side of the Road This Summer

Ace Hi Oil knows more than a thing-or-two about engine maintenance and how to keep motorists safe on the road during long drives and has prepared the following post for tips to help you and your passengers reach your destination safely.

Your Tires

The best place to start is with your tires. Why? Because they are literally the items which keep your entire vehicle moving. Take your car into the sunlight, kneel down, and give their condition a quick inspection. Keep your eyes out for the following:
  • Anything stuck in the tread of your tire
  • Any items suck in the tires themselves
  • The level of tread around your tire
  • Are there any bald spots?
  • Are there any cuts or chunks taken out?
Any of the above can spell disaster on the road during your summer road trip. If you can see any of these or anything else which doesn’t look right, have your mechanic check your tires before you leave. The last thing which you want to happen is to experience a tire blowout at high speed!

Tire Pressure

While you are checking the condition of your tire, why not check its pressure? Not only can ensuring your tires are at the correct pressure save you gas but it makes your vehicle easier to maneuver, further helping you to stay safe on the road.

How Are Your Fluids?

Can you remember your folks telling you to keep your fluids in check? Of all the lessons they taught you, this is definitely one which you should be paying attention to. The reason why this is important is because it only takes low engine oil or your coolant to run out during your drive to leave you and your passengers stranded. Instead, check the following a few days before you head out:
  • Engine oil
  • Coolant
  • Brake Fluid
  • Transmission Fluid
  • Wiper Fluid
If any of these fluids are either low or you can see that they’ve passed their usefulness, be sure to either top them up or even replace them prior to leaving, lest you get stuck on the side of the road with steam pouring from your radiator.

Can You Stop?

It’s one thing to bring your car to a slowdown and then a stop when you are driving around the local streets completing your errands, but it’s quite another when you need to hit the brakes hard to avoid problems at high speed. If you have been hearing a grinding sound as your brake lately, it’s a good sign that your brakes need to be replaced. If not, with your car in the light, give your brake pads a visual inspection. If you can see any film or build up on your pads or you can even see the indicator-pin starting to show, it’s time to get them checked and potentially replaced.

Your Electrics

Something as simple as a blown headlamp can spell trouble when you are driving during the night portion of your travels. Why? Easy! Without headlamps, you won’t be able to see where you’re going and other vehicles won’t be as aware of your presence on the road. Whether one headlamp is dimmer than the other or your tail-lights are on their way out, before you undertake a road trip is the best time to get them replaced. When buying replacements you will see that they come in a pair - be sure to pack the unused one in your trunk just in case you need it during your trip.
