Inspecting Your Vehicle for a Road Trip
**Sponsored Post** My friend Gale was going to take her vehicle on a road trip. She asked me to point out some of the things to look for on her vehicle before she left. This video shows several of the things I recommended she check on her vehicle before her trip. If you don't think you're up to the task, I recommend you take your vehicle to a professional to have it looked over before your trip. That way you'll have the piece of mind knowing your vehicle is ready for the road. This post is brought to you by AutoZone; the opinions are all mine.

5 Important things to check before a long Trip on car By C.M.
Driving long distances can be great. There's a certain kind of freedom that comes with being out on the road and being in control of the journey. Here are some simple precautions and forward thinking tips that'll ensure you have a great open road adventure. 1.Check the tyres -Your tyres might seem fine, but you should always check them, especially if it's been awhile. It's particularly important for long trips that they have enough pressure and tread. If you're not sure how to do this yourself, you can always take it to a local tyre shop. 2.Get your wheels -aligned -Not only can unaligned tyres cause unnecessary wear and cost you in the long run, they're unsafe. It's important to be able to drive in a straight line, especially on unfamiliar roads. 3.Get it serviced -Whether you're someone who regularly does this, or someone who may slack off a little bit, you should always get a service before a long trip. Make sure you flag your plans with the mechanic so they can be extra sure that everything is in the best shape for the open road. 4.Check the battery -You want to make sure that it's full of charge and that the terminals are clean. 5.Top Up Your Fluids - This includes the water, oil, coolants, brakes, power steering and transmission.

5 Road Trip Car Checks You Must Do Before You Hit the Road
Planning a family road trip? Hold on! Before you pack the kids in the car, check these five things to keep your family safe. Road trips can take a serious toll on your vehicle, so it's important to make sure your car is in tip-top shape before you leave. In this video, we interview Sal Rubino, Fixed Operations Director at BMW of Manhattan, about the five most important things to check on your car before a road trip. http://bmwnyc.com 1. Make sure your tires are ready One of the first things you want to do is check your tire pressure. Now, I know what some of you are thinking. That my car has a tire pressure monitor system that tells me when the pressures are off. Which is true, however, there is an acceptable variance within that tire pressure monitor system. And, you just want to make sure you're not at the low end of the threshold. Another thing checking your tire pressures does is it allows you the opportunity to visually inspect your tires for bubbles, or tears, or something like that. Because, those won't generally register on the tire pressure monitor system. Another thing you want to do is you want to check your tire tread depth gauge. Tread depth is very important. You want to have enough there so that the car can stop when it's supposed to, and that it's also safe in wet conditions. 2. Check your wheel alignment We had one customer that came into the dealership with brand new tires, decided not to do an alignment, went on a long road trip, by the time the customer was back the tires were completely bald. This obviously is unsafe, especially in wet conditions, but also, it affects the vehicle handling. 3. Make sure all your lights work The first thing you do is your turn the vehicle on. Make sure its in park. Turn on your headlights, and make sure that they're working. Operate your high-beams, make sure those are working, and then check your turn signals. An easy way to do this, instead of using the stock, is you can turn on your hazard lights, and this will turn all the turn signals on at once. So, you can just walk around the vehicle and make sure they're all working. The next thing you want to do is check your break lights. Again, make sure the vehicle is in park, the engine is off, so that somebody can safely go behind the car and visually inspect the break lights for you. Step on the break pedal. 4. Check your wipers and windshield The first thing you should do is check your wiper blades. So, what you want to do is lift your wiper blades off the windshield, visually inspect them, make sure that they're not torn, or dry-rotted, or dirty. If they're physically in good shape, but are a little dirty, you can wipe them down with a wet paper towel. Another thing you want to do is check the windshield itself. Any small chips or cracks can turn into larger cracks over the course of a long road trip. 5. Make sure your seat belts work The first thing you want to do is take the seat belt strap and give it a quick snap. The seat belt should stop your hand. If it does not, you should definitely get this checked out at a dealership. Another thing you want to do is check the seat belt buckle itself. This is common to those of us with children. Children will eat and drink in the back seat. What winds up happening is they will pour sugary drinks down the seat belt buckles. What happens is, these seat belt buckles, over time, will start to bind because of those sugar drinks that were poured down there. So, generally what you want to do is inspect those buckles to make sure they're operating correctly, and they don't bind, and they work when you need them to. road trip car checks | road trip | car maintenance | car check | car care | vehicle check up

Watch more Road Trip Tips videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/133819-How-to-Prepare-Your-Car-for-a-Road-Trip Before you and your buddies drive from Boston to Bogota at least make sure your car is in working shape. Step 1: Check tires Check the tire pressure and inspect tires for bubbles, knots, cracks, gouges, and uneven wear. Step 2: Check tire tread & rotate tires Check tire tread with a depth gauge, available at auto supply stores for a few dollars. It will tell you if your tires are bald. Rotate your tires if it�s been a while since you�ve done so. Tip Traveling in the winter? Consider investing in a pair of tire chains�some mountainous roads even require them. Step 3: Check fluid levels Check your engine fluid levels�oil, brake, power steering, transmission, and coolant. Add fluids as necessary. Tip If you are getting your oil changed, ask the shop to check your tires and engine fluids. Step 4: Inspect wipers Inspect your wiper blades and replace them if necessary. Top off your windshield wiper fluid and throw the leftover jug in the trunk. Step 5: Visit mechanic Have a mechanic check your battery, spark plugs, and belts, and test your brakes. Tip If your car is making any strange noises or handles �funny,� pay a mechanic to do a full inspection. Step 6: Pack emergency kit Pack an emergency kit. It should contain nonperishable food like energy bars, water, jumper cables, first aid supplies, a flashlight, and extra engine fluids. Better safe than sorry. Did You Know? Planning for the interstate highway system started in the 1930s, but it wasn�t officially established until 1956.

Preparing for a Road Trip: Car Expert Lauren Fix
Courtesy of Time Warner Cable/ YNN Aired: 8/09/2012 Rising gas prices won't stop Americans from hitting the road this summer. Before you take off in full vacation mode, make sure that your vehicle is as ready as you are. Lauren Fix, the Car Coach, tells you how. •Fueling your vehicle with high quality gasoline is important and can help protect your engine. Shell Nitrogen Enriched Gasolines contain 20 percent more active cleaning agents than before, helping protect your engine's intake valves and fuel injectors from performance-robbing gunk. Tests prove that Nitrogen Enriched Gasoline cleans up deposits left behind by lower quality gasoline. No other gasoline protects better! •Check your tires: Do it right by spending just five minutes a month to check your tire pressure. It can save you money and help keep your family safe on the roads. Properly inflated tires can save you to 12 cents per gallon at the pumps and technology like Continentals low rolling resistant EcoPlus can help you save money while being environmentally friendly. This technology has phenomenal wet-braking capacity and year-round traction. The additional combination of fuel efficiency and reduced CO2 emissions makes EcoPlus a smart choice. •Check and change your oil filter: Using a high quality premium oil filter will provide superior particle removal, preventing contaminants from circulating through the system and causing damage. Royal Purple oil filters are high-performance with optimized flow characteristics for maximum performance and longer filter life. If you have a high mileage car, using full synthetic oil and a synthetic oil filter will lengthen the life of your engine. •Carry the essentials: If you get stuck on the side of the road at night, be sure to carry something that can shine some light on the situation. The Hard Case Professional Magnetic Area Light can magnetically mount under the hood of the car. It's easy to activate by pushing the lens switch with three bright, wide-angle LEDS that are very durable. The device comes with a screw-in wall mount so you can work on your car in the garage too! •Charge up: For your gadgets and portable entertainment, carry a car charger that will keep you powered while on the go. The Energizer 5W Premium Universal USB Charger for Car has convenient cable storage, which eliminates clutter. It's universal so it works with your iPhone/iPod as well as all your micro USB devices, turning any DC outlet (cigarette lighter) into a charging station.
