Original WD-40's blog listings. Feed Zend_Feed_Writer 1.10.8 (http://framework.zend.com) http://www.mywd40.com/originalwd40 Get Your Car Road Trip Ready! Labor Day is just around the corner! If you’re planning a late summer road trip, check these items off your to-do list to ensure you’re ready to hit the road.

1. Examine Your Coolant Level

Car engines have a hard time keeping cool. If they get too hot, it can cause problems for the parts in and around the engine. Coolant can help keep your car running at the right internal temperature.

Adding coolant should be done every two years. A 50-50 mixture of antifreeze and water can be added, or a premixed coolant. A mechanic can help with this task or you can do it yourself at home. If you think you have a coolant leak, then you should take your car to an auto shop for repair.

2. Replace Your Windshield Wipers

Winter and spring rain and snow can take a toll on your windshield wipers. The rubber on the wipers can crack and tear as a result. If your wipers are not clearing away rain as quickly as they used to or they’re leaving streaks on the windshield, it’s time to replace them – especially before you head out on a long trip.

Again, you can take your car in to an auto shop or you can buy new wipers from an auto parts store and replace them yourself. If you decide to be a DIYer, let a person at the auto store know what vehicle make and model you have for the right windshield wipers – then follow instructions.

3. Check Your Brakes

Make sure your brakes aren’t worn out and are working properly. The following are a few signs they need to be replaced:

  • The brake pedal pressure feels too soft or hard
  • Warning lights come on the dashboard
  • You hear a scraping sound as you brake

It’s better to get your brakes checked if you think there’s a problem, to prevent a bigger problem from happening in the future.

TIP: Use the new WD-40® Specialist® Industrial-Strength Cleaner & Degreaser to help clean tools, equipment and parts as you work on your car. The powerful, safer and easier-to-use non-aerosol Degreaser can help you safely and effectively tackle the messiest challenges.
