I'm getting ready to take a road trip across the country and I have to take the car in for maintenance. I've had no major problems other than an engine mount had to be replaced. I take the car in regularly for oil changes, etc. My Ex use to take care of these things for me and now I have to do this myself. Iknow the hoses were okay in May, but I live in the desert and I don't want them going out on me during the drive. BOth the heat and AC work okay, I can't see any leaks anywhere. My "check oil soon" light goes on but then goes off after 20 seconds.
What should I ask the service people to check specifically?
PS In May, my front brakes were at a #5. I don't about 8000 miles a year in driving. Those are also the 2nd pair of brakes on the car.
I don't want to be taken advantage of when I take the car in (I usually do go to the dealer) so I'm sorry if I'm not making myself clear but I need some help!! Thanks.
