Summer Car Tips from GearHeads Auto Repair

 By:  GearHeads Auto Repair

A few summer car care tips....
After the mechanic gives your car a once-over before summer, take the time to pack some backup items:

One gallon of 50% coolant to 50% water.
2 spare quarts or oil.
One Gallon of windshield washer fluid
A good flashlight with spare batteries
A disposable camera in case of accident or a good photo opportunity
A piece of carpet or a door mat, in case you have to kneel down on the ground in bad weather
Drinking water. People always get thirsty.
Sunblock and insect repellant.

These are just a few items that can make your life a littler better when out on the road this summer. And remember when driving long distances, take breaks ever couple of hours and stretch. Enjoy your summer!



Gearheads Auto Repair is my personal mechanic, and owned by Amy & Carlos that also have kids of their own.  While car repair is their business, I have found my safety seems to be very important to them also.  You can follow GearHeads Auto Repair on Facebook or give them a call at 573-204-3422...note they are in the Jackson, MO area.
