Accidents happen on the road, and here are things you may need during an emergency. Without proper car maintenance, there are so many things that can happen to your car, including possibly blow up. Here is a list of things you should consider always carrying in your car:
- A quart of oil could save your engine from overheating and eventually blowing up. Regular oil changes clean out your engine and prevent severe damage to the engine and transmission. During your monthly oil gauge check, grab a full quart of oil to keep with you.
- Blankets and towels can be very handy if your car breaks down. It may be the middle of the night, and you are nowhere near a gas station. By keeping blankets, you are ensuring you will be able to stay warm. Towels are great for messes and any accidents that happen. They can also be used as a tourniquet during a medical emergency.
- A spare tire may seem like overdoing it, but anything could pop your tire. If you decide on bringing a spare tire, go ahead and carry a carjack with you. Change your time if anything happens to it, or it seems like it is leaking air at a profuse rate. There are tire pressure gauges you should always have in your car to check for this.
- A rope is something you never think of bringing on road trips or even leaving in your car for safekeeping. However, a rope is useful in almost every emergency. It can be used to tie down mattresses or suitcases for long drives. A rope can be used to keep doors shut if they are not closing long enough for you to get to a repair shop.
If you do any handiwork or maintenance on your car, get it checked out by a professional at the first opprotunity.
