Trip Inspections at Mid Island Automotive Repairs Ltd in Nanaimo

A lot of Nanaimo motorists wonder about how to prepare their family car for a trip. That’s a big deal. You could be driving through BC mountains and deserts in some pretty lonely areas so you may be anxious to know that the car is up to the task and won’t leave you stranded.

Nanaimo auto owners really do need to 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 to see if you can feel any vibrations: are the wheels in balance? Is the car tracking straight? Is the alignment ok?

The next thing is a full-service oil change at Mid Island Automotive Repairs Ltd in Nanaimo to make sure all of your fluids are topped off and you have fresh oil for the trip. And if your family car has over 120,000 kilometers, you may consider putting in the high-kilometer 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. Check your owners’ manual for any other recommended service and have your appreciative Mid Island Automotive Repairs Ltd service specialist do the multi-point inspection they do so well before you head out.

Consider also having the coolant system serviced at Mid Island Automotive Repairs Ltd in Nanaimo – you want to stay within the auto maker’s recommendations. Nanaimo car owners who are towing a trailer will want to keep in mind that they’ll be going a long way under severe conditions.

A lot of Nanaimo car owners overlook severe conditions like towing, or BC summer heat, or driving on dirt roads. Plan ahead for your next road trip – at Mid Island Automotive Repairs Ltd, we want you to get there and back.
