Essential Checks To Do On Your Car Before Driving It

When gearing up for a long road trip or simply before going to work, these are the things you should check before driving your car.
The things we’ve listed below are simple SOP’s (Standard Operating Procedures) you should perform often to avoid any delays in your driving, such as when you run out of gas, and minor inconveniences, such as engine overheating.

Make sure you have enough gas, especially when going on a long drive.

Most drivers often overlook this very simple detail about their car—whether it has enough gas or not. If you’re going on a road trip, starting on a full tank is advisable. Although there may be rest stops with gas stations along the way, you never know when detours may come in handy (such as when there are roadblocks) so it’s better to be prepared.

Check the air pressure on your tires.

It is better to visit a gas station for this to make sure that you’re not running on a flat tire. When having your tires inflated, make sure that they never exceed the air pressure maximum, because tires with too much air pressure on them can cause them to burst or blow out. Also check to see whether your spare tire has enough air in case you need to change one of your tires when you’re already on the road.

Make sure your toolbox is equipped with the necessary items.

Stock it with extra batteries, a flashlight, a wrench, dry snacks, a blanket, and a first aid kit. It’s always better to be prepared.
