Here are 5 top things you should pay special attention to if you want to avoid getting your car towed especially when it gets hot outside.
1. Check the rubber hoses that come out of the radiator. Heat is the biggest killer for the hoses that transport coolant around your engine and up to the radiator. Check them regularly to make sure they’re not cracked or damaged. We have seen many engines that have been destroyed through neglect of these hoses. If they look old or getting pretty soft and spongy, or if they look cracked or bulging it’s a sign that you need to replace them.
2. Brake pads Your brake pads will wear out with harder braking with a load at the back. Good brakes are required in this case. Therefore, make sure there is no indication of fluid leaks and that the pads aren’t making a squealing noise. This is an indicator that is designed to make a noise dragging on the rotter.
3.Change Your Oil and Filter Avoid using just any oil in your vehicle, but the one recommended by the manufacturer, you can find this in your owners manual. With the fine tolerances and complex management system incorporated into modern vehicles of nowadays, this is imperative that you use the right oil. In addition, make sure you don’t gamble when it comes to filter. Neglecting the filter or not changing it is a sure way to oil failure and expensive repair.
4. Check and change the coolant Someone like me is careless about this, but it is necessary about once a year. I always say if the coolant looks alright and the engine still operates at the normal operating temperature you should be good. You NEVER want your engine to overheat, this is the main cause of engines breaking down! The coolant in our vehicles is a mixture of anti-freeze and water, which is generally mixed at 50% coolant and 50% water. It is true that your engine will run hotter when you are towing a boat or a trail but your cooling system should run at a pretty normal temperature or just above where it normally runs but not in the red. To keep your car running great and being reliable, check the owners manual for the radiator servicing schedule and change the coolant when the schedule suggests.
5. Tire pressure It is vital that you run your tires with the right amount of air in them when you are towing your vehicle. This will improve your fuel economy or gas mileage and reduce tire wear. You can talk to your mechanic or local tire shop about what pressure should be for the tires you have on your vehicle or you can look on the side of the tire and it’s usually printed there.
Final Thoughts I don’t always check everything unless I’m going on a long trip but that’s why people like me experience the occasional vehicle break down. But hey we are all human and make mistakes, plus we all lead very busy lives these days.
