Vehicle Preparation Tips In the Event of an Unexpected Auto Emergency
When was the last time your vehicle had an auto inspection? Every car owner should be prepared for an unexpected auto emergency. Let’s take a look at tips that every car owner should do to be prepared for the unexpected.
According to an article at carcare.org, “Auto Preparation Tips”
“Emergencies and natural disasters come in a variety of forms, and you don’t always have time to prepare,” said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. “It is important and gives you peace of mind to know that your vehicle is always ready for the task.”
The Car Care Council recommends checking the following to make sure your car is ready for the unexpected:
Tire Tread: Tire tread helps your car grip the road. Having low tire tread is especially dangerous when driving in wet, flood-like, snowy or icy conditions. Check your tread easily with a penny.
Tire pressure: Pressure that is too low or too high can affect gas mileage, tread wear and vehicle performance. Check your tires once a month when they are still cold, using the PSI (pounds per square inch) number located on the driver door or in the owner’s manual.
Fluids Check: Check your car’s fluids once a month or take a peek when you fill the gas tank. Top off fluids, such as your oil and coolant, and visit a technician if you suspect a leak.” To read the entire article click here.
