Pat’s Travelers Checklist

Pat’s Travelers Checklist

As you know, Wilmington, Carolina Beach, and Wrightsville Beach are not only our coastline homes, but a beautiful area that we share with travelers every Summer.  Whether you like to stay and host out-of-town guests, or hit the road, we want to share our checklist for keeping your vehicle running heroically this Summer.

 

1) Engine OilTransmission and Differential Fluids:
Like any machine with moving parts, lubrication can prevent the friction that causes long-lasting damage.
2) Hoses:
A rubber hose may have a long shelf-life…on the shelf.  Under the hood, hoses are exposed to heat on a regular basis and wear quickly.  An inexpensive part of vehicle maintenance that will help keep you safe.
3) Serpentine Belt:
One large belt in charge of a lot of components. Like loading all of your eggs in one basket; if the bottom falls out…
4) Engine Coolant:
Imagine running a marathon with no training for such distances. Good chance your body will overheat.  Engine coolant maintenance is easy and can be done on your own.  However, it is important to not mix types!
5) Brake System:
High-speeds, wet roads, and steep climbs may all be a part of your trek.  Having properly working brakes, can make a huge difference in your safety.
6) Battery:
Most batteries have a life-span between 2 and 5 years. If you’re unsure of its age, be sure to get it checked.  Cleaning your battery of corrosive, white, flaky, substance is a good way to increase the lifespan.
7) Tires:
Where the rubber meets the road.  Tire pressure can directly affect your fuel efficiency, and grip on the road. Alignment and tire balance will keep you driving straight. Proper tread ensures stability and dependability.  Check your tread with Honest Abe. When inserting a penny into your tread, you should not be able to see his shoulder.
8) AC Performance:
While it may seem like a convenience or luxury, Air Conditioning may provide safety benefits in the heat of Summer.
