Important Types of Auto Maintenance Before a Road Trip

Important Types of Auto Maintenance Before a Road Trip

With the arrival of summer weather and a fully reopening country, the open road is calling. Before you round up the family and hop on the interstate, it's important to be sure that your car is prepared for the trek. At L&S Autowerks, our local European auto shop can complete any type of maintenance that you need before hitting the road.

Important Road Trip Auto Maintenance Tasks

To prepare your Euro car for the open road, it's smart to conduct certain maintenance tasks that will keep the heat in check. During AC service, the mechanic will check all AC parts to ensure they're working properly. When the temperature soars, you'll be very thankful for your AC system's ability to keep your family in a better mood. Cooling system service is another way to help your car beat the heat. It's generally recommended that coolant gets exchanged every 30,000 miles, but you can check your owner's manual to see the specifications for your vehicle. With the right level of clean coolant, it's far less likely that your engine will suffer serious damage from overheating, which is a significant concern when driving across vast distances under the blazing sun.

To keep your family as safe as possible on the open road, certain safety precautions should be taken. When you come to the shop for brake service, our mechanics will inspect your braking system, replace pads if needed, and lubricate parts as necessary. If any serious brake trouble is discovered, we'll provide you with an accurate estimate for the repairs. Before your departure, tire pressure should also be checked. Tire pressure typically is supposed to be at a level between 30 and 35 psi, though it's worth checking your tires to make sure you know their exact requirement. With correct tire pressure, there's far less risk of a blowout. And a quick and affordable way to boost safety is with wiper blade replacement. You never know when a heavy summertime thunderstorm might start dumping rain on the highway. In such a scenario, you'll be thankful that your new wiper blades are able to provide you with a safe field of vision through your windshield.
