Long Distance Driving Tips

Here I would like to share with you some very important tips to make sure the smoothness of your journey, based on my own experience driving on long distance.

What you should change?
  • Engine oil, oil filter, air filter (if clogged), fuel filter, sparkplug,  water pump and timing belt (if it nearly reached the running mileage), wiper blade if necessary.
What you should check
  • Battery acid level, Radiator reserve tank and wiper tank water level
  • Power steering, Clutch and brake fluid level
  • Any leak at the engine bay, and brake fluid at the wheel hub
  • Brake pad (front wheel), brake shoe (rear wheel), brake piston bushing
  • Tire alignment, balancing and thread tickness
  • Tire and spare tire inflated properly, lug nut spannar, triangle reflector and car jack
  • For old vehicles; check the alternator output voltage, radiator water hose, water hose T-connector (if using PVC type), wheel bearing
  • Spare fuse
  • Wiper blade
  • electronic devices such as headlamp, rain light (small light), brake light, turn signal and hazard light.

What you should bring along
  • Tool box
  • Water (in bottle or gallon)
  • Spare headlamp bulp and other bulp
  • Towing rob
  • Handpump/compact air compressor
  • Torch light
  • Something that can be used to defend yourself if something bad happen and never misused it. Keep it where you can reach it on the spot such as next to your car's door step (steering lock, medium size wooden/rattan stick) but do not bring machetes/samurai sword. Your vacation could be ended in jail.
Rattan stick-for self defend. can be found  at Night market for RM10-15  each
