From The Greeneville Neighbor News

The holidays are quickly approaching. Many of us are planning to drive to visit friends & family. Before you head out on that road trip, we recommend having your vehicle checked over to make sure it is in good condition.

Replace or top off antifreeze, transmission fluid, engine oil, brake fluid, washer fluid, & power steering fl uid. If you are close to needing your oil changed, you should have it changed before your trip.

This strains the impurities and should be checked and replaced regularly to protect the engine.

Check headlights, signal lights, brake lights, wiper blades & mirrors.

Although brakes have “squealers” to alert you when they are getting thin, you should have them checked before a trip.

A car’s battery can be easily tested by your mechanic. Since cold weather affects a battery’s ability to start, it’s best to check it before you leave.

Make sure your tire tread is deep enough, the tires are properly inflated and have been rotated, balanced and aligned. Make sure you have a spare
that is ready to use in an emergency.

Your mechanic may wish to inspect other components in addition to the ones above. Be sure to get the most thorough pre-trip inspection you can afford. It helps to be able to spot a potential problem and have the opportunity to fi x it before you leave, instead of paying for a costly repair away from home.
