Why A Trip Inspection Is A Good Idea



At All Night Auto Repair we get a lot of Livonia drivers asking about car trip preparation. That’s a big deal. You could be driving through mountains and deserts in some pretty lonely areas outside of Livonia so it's important to know that the car is up to the task and won’t leave you stranded.

Smart Detroit motorists plan ahead for a major road trip – there are a lot of things to get ready. Where should you start? You could start with the tires. Look them over for tread wear and check to see that they are properly inflated. Take a quick test drive around Livonia to see if you can feel any vibrations: are the wheels in balance? Is the car tracking straight? Is the alignment ok? Come to All Night Auto Repair for a peace-of-mind trip inspection.

The next thing is a full service oil change to make sure all of your fluids are topped off and you have fresh oil for the trip. And if your car has over 75,000 miles, you may consider putting in the high-mileage formulation to clean harmful sludge deposits in the engine. You may also need a new PCV valve and an engine air filter.

How about your transmission and brakes? Have you had your transmission and brakes inspected in the last six months?

How are your wiper blades? There’s nothing like not being able to get rid of the bug juice on a long road trip away from Livonia.

Check your owners’ manual for any other recommended service and have All Night Auto Repair do the multi-point inspection before you head out.

Consider also having the coolant system serviced – you want to stay within the vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations. If you’re towing a trailer you’ll want to be keep in mind that you’ll be going a long way under severe conditions.

A lot of Livonia folks overlook severe conditions like towing, or summer heat, or driving on dirt roads. Plan ahead for your next road trip – we want you to get there and back.
