It's important to have mandatory scheduled maintenance performed on your vehicle all year round, such as necessary engine oil changes, and checking fluid levels on the transmission, brake, power steering and coolant. Schedule an appointment with your auto shop for these minor yet crucial services at least a couple of weeks before your road trip to make sure everything is in good working order.

Performing the above necessary preventive measures can save you money in the future, avoiding costly repairs which could have been easily averted. If you are contemplating taking a road trip during the summer months, you want to be assured that your car is ready for the trip as well.

A common problem that could occur is overheating of the engine if there is not enough coolant in the radiator and none in the reservoir to replenish it. This can lead to serious problems, such as the radiator or water pump hoses bursting. You will find there is no alternative but to visit an auto shop in a strange town to have the hoses replaced and perhaps even the water pump and thermostat.

Another advisable precaution is to schedule an oil change with your auto center before heading down the road. Fresh oil keeps the engine cooler and running smoother. Your auto shop can inspect your car for any other potential problems at the same time.

There are a few other issues to ask your auto shop professional to check out, such as the dipstick levels of your transmission fluid, brake fluid and power steering levels, as well inspect the color and density. If it is required, do not hesitate to change the fluid. Also be sure to check the quality of your tires and rotate them if necessary, check the air pressure and get a brake inspection.  Additionally, ask your auto shop to check for any minor leaks underneath your car, and inspect the A/C for leaks and Freon capacity.

A word to the wise: If if you are driving long distances, you may want to make a few stops periodically along the way to allow the engine to cool down.
