For most of us, proper preparation for your upcoming holiday road trip is more about wedging suitcases into the trunk and grabbing that famous stuffing recipe than it is about car maintenance. We certainly understand; the holiday season is a hectic one. However, a little advance planning can make a huge difference in getting to your destination in one piece and arriving with a few shreds of sanity left! Here are five ways to ready your car (and yourself) for the great holiday tradition: the road trip.
One day, this might happen to you, you glance down at your vehicle's dashboard only to see the check engine light turned on. You burst into a cold sweat wondering just how badly your car's engine needs to be checked. If your car doesn't sound like there is a monkey swinging a hammer under your hood and your vehicle is not billowing smoke, you're probably not in immediate danger (though you'll want to head to your mechanic to be sure). The check engine light, or malfunction indication light, as it's known to the auto elite, is designed to keep the driver informed of any number of sensor failures or engine irregularities.
Rave again to Andy's Auto in St. Could. I called them at 430 pm, after I discovered a screw in my tire and could hear the air leaking out. Of course, the tire needed to be replaced.

It meant a great deal to me and I am so grateful!

Summer’s coming, and with it, warmer temperatures, vacations, and longer trips. We don’t want to be downers, but if your car’s cooling system isn’t up to par, things could go from fun-in-the-sun to stranded-in-the-sun too quickly for anyone’s liking.
