Road Trip Car Prep
Cameron Mathison is getting you ready for your long weekend road trip by showing you ways to prep your car!
Before a road trip, check these important car fluids:
-Engine Oil: Wipe of the engine’s dipstick, dip it back into the oil reservoir and check the oil level. If it is below the recommended level, you can top it off slowly. Do not overfill! Use only the oil that your car manufacturer recommends. Typically a full oil change is needed for most cars every 3 months or 3,000 miles.
-Coolant: Check the levels of your coolant only when your car is COMPLETELY cool. Either first thing in the morning before you turn your car on, or 5 to 6 hours after your car has had time to cool. There should be a Min and Max line on the reservoir. If you need to refill, do so with a coolant that is a 50/50 antifreeze/water mixture. Check this before summer season, winter season, and before long trips.
-Windshield Wiper Fluid: It’s good to top off your windshield wiper fluid at the change of each season. Use windshield wiper fluid, not just water, to help prevent freezing.
Don’t forget, to also check your tires:
-Check your car’s manual or on your door to find what the appropriate tire pressure for your car is. A tire gauge is very simple to use - simply take off the cap on your tire and place the gauge over the pump until you hear a hissing sound, then release. If your pressure is low, you can refill it at your local gas station air compressor. When filling with an air compressor, 1 second= about 1 pound of pressure.
-For a quick tire tread check, stick a penny between the treads, with the head diving downward. If you can see the top of Abraham Lincoln’s head, you may need new tires.
