Re: roadtrip advice

As long as your maintenance items are up to date, then you should be good to go.

Replace spark plugs, dist. cap, dist. rotor, air filter, change oil if they are due. Check coolant level.

Check tire pressure. Make sure that your spare tire has proper pressure if you get a flat on the way. Just a couple things I could think of.

Well our cars call for 5W30, I would give it a oil change, you have been driving it daily? If so and you drive it with no problems should be OK. Now if you drive it daily and it limps around I would not take that car.

Making a long trip on the car is good for it, get to open it up you'll probably see the best mileage you have every seen on it. I like to use that oil and fuel additive that Carol Shelby endorses, I forget the name its a bit exspensive but man that stuff is great.
