Middletown DE Area Lincoln Drivers Should Keep These Items in Their Cars

When problems arise on the road, it’s good to be prepared! A little bit of planning can go a long way towards ensuring that bumps in the road don’t disrupt your whole day. This involves having the right equipment, and Middletown DE area Lincoln drivers would do well to keep the following items in their cars at all times:

    • Extra Coolant, Oil, and Windshield Washer Fluid. These fluids all play important parts in the proper functioning of your vehicle. Should you run low on any of them while driving, it’s nice to have some extra on board. All three of these items can be easily purchased at most convenience stores, so this is an easy one.
    • Flashlight. If you break down at night and need to take a look at your car’s engine, change a tire, or catch the attention of passerbys, this is a good item to have.
    • Jumper Cables. Whether it’s your car that won’t start, or a friend’s, you’ll be glad you have jumper cables. Keep a pair in your trunk to be the guy or gal that’s always ready to save the day.

    • Ice Scraper. During the winter months, this will come in handy to clear off your windows.
    • Portable Air Compressor. A small air compressor can help get you through an emergency if you discover you have a slow leak in your tire. Along these same lines, it’s in your best interest to have a working spare tire, jack, and wrench should you need to replace one. If you find you need a new tire, use the handy Lincoln tire finder provided by our Middletown DE area Lincoln dealer to find one.
    • Duct Tape. What’s handier than duct tape? Duct tape can be useful in many situations. We recommend keeping a roll of it in your car at all times.
    • Fully Charged Mobile Phone. Most modern cars have ways you can charge your phone inside them. Make sure yours does, so you can always make a call in the event of an emergency.
    • Energy Bars and Water. Staying hydrated is always important, and in the unfortunate event that you find yourself stranded, it’s best to have something to munch on while waiting for assistance.

  • Warm, Waterproof Clothing. If you get stranded during the winter, and need to wait for assistance, having a warm, dry jacket and gloves in your vehicle could prove invaluable.
  • A First Aid Kid. Immediate attention can be the difference between a minor injury and a more severe one. Keeping a first aid kit in your vehicle could make all the difference in one of these unfortunate situations.

If you have any questions about the items on the list above, or you’re looking for service for your vehicle, don’t hesitate to contact Carman Lincoln online or by calling (302) 324-4400. We’ll be happy to help out in any way we can!

Winter Driving Tips

  • Check the weather report before you hit the road. It’s always better to be prepared.
  • Be sure that your tires are properly inflated. Cold weather can cause your tires to become underinflated, and overinflated tires will have trouble gripping the road in tricky conditions.
  • Be sure that your vehicle is in optimal running condition. We recommend regular checkups at our Middletown DE area Lincoln service center year round, but this is especially important during the winter months.
  • It may be tempting to run your car for a bit to warm it up before you get in. This is ok, but be sure you’re not doing it in an enclosed area such as a garage. If toxic exhaust fumes are allowed to collect in an enclosed area, the result can be harmful or fatal.
  • Pack an emergency bag with blankets, gloves, hats, food water, and any other necessities you may need in the unfortunate event that you find yourself stranded.
  • If you get stuck in the snow, stay with your vehicle. That will make it easier for rescuers to find you, and it will keep you from getting lost in the snow.
  • Make sure your exhaust pipe isn’t clogged with ice or snow. This can create a dangerous situation.
