1. Tires: Ensure tire pressure is properly maintained for both lengthy travels and everyday driving. Underinflation of tires can cause unnecessary wear and hardship to tire tread, causing tire failure or malfunctions. If not properly inflated, fuel economy can be severely decreased, tires can easily lose traction that could lead to an accident if not addressed. Service tires at North Texas Automotive Service before the Summer Travel Season to avoid unnecessary accidents, injury or inconvenience.
2. Headlights: Maintaining proper safety and visibility is imperative. Do not let rain, fog or even a dark winter night create stressful driving situations for you with headlight restoration and replacement. Simple headlight cleanings are inexpensive and can quickly provide drivers with improved safety and maneuverability.
3. Fuel: Often travelers will wait until their fuel levels have dropped considerably to refill their tank, this can be harmful to vehicles and budgets. Once fuel levels drop below half a tank, gas will more quickly evaporate and cause travelers to purchase more fuel throughout their road trip. Maintaining fuel levels will allow drivers to ensure no vehicle malfunctions are occurring and give drivers improved concentration for the road ahead.
4. Spark Plugs: Checking spark plugs frequently will improve fuel economy, vehicle safety and help drivers avoid potential auto repairs in the future. Over time spark plugs can become soiled or corroded, potentially leaving travelers stranded without routine check-ups and replacement.
5. Oil Changes: Before setting out on your next adventure keep in mind an oil change can improve drivability and safety to ensure larger auto repairs are not needed while on the road. Consult your vehicle owner’s manual to find specifications of when oil changes and filter replacements should occur.
