Everyone likes to make those road-trips and you want to make sure your car is perfect before you go on the open road. We understand there is some maintenance and repair tasks are best left to certified automotive technicians, there are several basic items motorists can easily check. Here are a few things you can check yourself to make sure you are safe and keep your car from any further damage if neglected. First you want to check your Engine Air Filter. A dirty air filter was the most frequent problem found during AAA car care inspections. A dirty or clogged air filter restricts airflow and reduces engine performance. Check the air filter every six months or 7,500 miles by holding it up to a 100-watt light bulb. If light can be seen through much of the filter, it is still clean enough to work effectively. However, if the light is blocked by most of the filter, replace it.
There is something that most people might not be aware is your windshield washer fluid. You want to make sure you can enjoy the view. Rain, insects, grime and other debris on a windshield will compromise the driver's vision if the windshield wipers cannot remove them. Proper inflation will make tires last longer and delay the need to buy new ones. Plus, correct tire pressures will help maximize a vehicle's fuel economy, while ensuring optimum ride and handling for comfort and safety. You want to make sure your tire threads are looking healthy. Having good tires with sufficient tread depth is crucial, particularly in wet road conditions. Worn tires with shallow tread are much more likely to hydroplane on wet pavement, resulting in a loss of braking power and steering control.
Something you wish you will never be stuck without is your battery. Summer heat breaks down the battery internally and accelerates the rate of corrosion on vehicle's battery terminals. Both of these conditions can lead to insufficient electrical power being available, and leave a motorist stranded without warning. Back to your windshield, if wiper blades are worn, cracked or rigid with age, they will not adequately remove rain, grime and other debris that can obscure driver vision. The life of a rubber insert is typically six to 12 months depending on its exposure to heat, dirt, sunlight, acid rain and ozone. Streaking and chattering are common clues that the rubber is breaking down and replacement is needed.
Lastly you always want to have an emergency roadside kit. While preventative measures go a long way toward minimizing breakdowns, unexpected vehicle problems can still arise. AAA encourages motorists to update their emergency roadside kit every season. The kit should include a mobile phone and car charger; a flashlight with extra batteries; a first-aid kit; drinking water; extra snacks/food for your travelers and any pets; battery booster cables; and emergency flares or reflectors. We hope this list helps you with your summer travels. Stay safe in the open roads and make sure to enjoy the view.
