In order to make long-distance driving convenient and especially to ensure safety, drivers need to carefully prepare tools to support the trip and minimize the risks and risks during the trip.
Check out the 7 notes below to have a good journey for your family’s upcoming holiday!
Check engine oil
Internal engine problems such as wear, jam, or broken piston rings can cause the oil to drain quickly when traveling on the highway. If this is the case, reduce the speed, check the oil 100 km / time. Should bring more oil to follow the backup in the long journey.
Check the lighting system
Adjust the height of the lamp to match the speed to ensure safety and not affect other vehicles. When the system is dirty, need cleaning to ensure brightness.
Ensure adequate tire pressure
Tire pressure is one of the parameters to be checked regularly, especially when away. The tire does not have enough tension to create a mechanical wave that wears on the tire and is dangerous when driving the vehicle because it cannot accelerate as desired. Moreover, uneven tension between the wheels will cause imbalance and is not safe to drive.
Braking oil, glass washing water, exhaust system
Factors that seem inconsequential are quite important for the car to function well during the trip, make sure the air vents, heating systems and air conditioners work normally. The air filter should be checked because if it is dirty it can affect the fuel efficiency and engine performance.
Window and mirror system
The glass on both sides of the clean window for the standard view, the two rearview mirrors also need to be aligned to the driver’s vision, ensuring the best observation.
Check for clear signs of corrosion on the terminal (+/-) of the battery. In case of cracks or leaks or abnormalities should be replaced before the trip.
Suspension and steering wheel
When traveling far, the car depends a lot on the suspension and steering wheel. To check these parts correctly, the car should be taken to the garage. However, if there are any failures, it can still be known through signs such as the car shaking, strange noises, rattling noises when passing through bumps …
