Don’t forget for ALL your travel requirements, come and see us at Randburg Midas and we will make sure you are ready for the trip of a lifetime. How to prepare a car for a long road trip A long trip is a serious test for your car and even a small problem such as a worn windshield wiper or out-of-balance tire can cause a lot of troubles. We have prepared a few simple tips on how to prepare your vehicle for a trip. However, this checklist does not include many other important items such as brakes and suspension components that may only be inspected by a mechanic in a garage with the car on the lift. Don’t leave it for the last moment, do it few days before your trip. Check your car owner’s manual Have a look in your vehicle’s owner’s manual and don’t forget to keep it in your glove box. The owner’s manual contains plenty of useful information from how to tow a trailer to how to change the flat tire and where the jack is located. Under the bonnet: Are there any leaks? Are the battery terminals clean? Does the drive belt look worn out? If the belt appears cracked or glazed, have it replaced before the trip. Check all the fluids. Check engine oil To check the engine oil, park the car on a level spot, warm up and stop the engine. Wait for a minute to allow the oil to drain down the oil pan. Pull the engine oil dipstick out, wipe it with a clean rag or a paper towel and insert it back fully. Pull it out again and check the level – it should be close to the “FULL” mark on the dipstick. If the engine oil appears too black, it’s better to change it now. Check the automatic transmission fluid A long trip with a full load will be another exam for your automatic transmission. If your transmission fluid change is due soon, do it before a trip. Visually check engine coolant (antifreeze) in the overflow tank Visually check the engine coolant level in the overflow tank.

  • Is your car winter ready?

    Is your car winter ready? Yes I am talking to you… When last did you change or top-up your car’s anti-freeze? With winter here it’s the perfect time. So what are you waiting for, head to Randburg Midas and get some now! If you not 100% sure what anti-freeze does, here is a little explanation: Antifreeze is a liquid that is added to the water in an engine’s cooling system in order to lower the freezing point. This means that the water will not freeze under normal cold weather conditions. If that water did freeze you’d be in a spot of bother there – it’d cause some serious damage to the radiator and other components, which would cost an arm and a leg to fix. As well as preventing water from freezing up, antifreeze raises the boiling point of engine coolant to prevent overheating. The stuff also protects your engine from corrosion, aids heat transfer, and prevents scale from building up internally.
