We Utahns are fortunate to have countless spectacular destinations within a few hours’ drive. (National Parks, anyone?) So when you hit the road, the last thing you want is to have to pull over to the side of I-15 because your engine is whirring —especially when it’s 95 degrees out and you have two screaming children in the backseat. We’ve compiled our seven best tips to ensure smooth road trips this summer.

  • Lighten your load
  • Check your tires’ pressure and tread
  • Check your fluid levels
  • Make sure your belts and hoses are supple
  • Check your spare tire
  • Make sure nothing is blocking your radiator’s airflow
  • Add a coat of wax
