Before leaving on the road, attention to car noises
If lately we have detected noises, squeaks or vibrations, it can be due to failures in the suspension and damping. Do not forget that the shock absorbers besides being responsible for the seating of the car on the road and comfort, also have a great influence on the efficiency of braking. And already in this chapter, we should not stop checking the condition of the discs and brake pads. If we hear a noise when braking it is very possible that a change of one of both parts is already urgent. Nor forget that every 30,000 kilometers it is necessary to change the brake circuit liquids.
Before going on the road it is necessary to check the status and operation of all lights, as well as the beam height of the headlights. Besides being important for our security, they can punish us if they do not work correctly.
Today, modern cars have the engine practically encapsulated, so it is difficult to see and access many elements such as hoses, filters and other parts, which are what specialists check in the reviews.
Finally, as far as the car is concerned, it is necessary to review all the obligatory auxiliary elements, such as the spare wheel or, in its case, the emergency system, the jack and key of the screws of the wheels, the reflective vest, the emergency triangles, lamps and fuses. And of course the compulsory documents of the car and highly recommended the maintenance and telephone book of the workshop network, insurance and roadside assistance. It is also convenient to carry a duplicate set of keys. If you plan to leave the European Union, it will be necessary to take the Green Card of Insurance and the driver the International Driving Permit.
