Vehicle Maintenance

We all know that we should keep our vehicles in good repair with regular oil changes, keeping tires with proper amounts of air, routine inspection of belts and hoses - but are you diligently making sure you do these things, not just think about them?

There is an excellent article on Survival Blog today that talks about Vehicle Preparation and Maintenance items that I strongly encourage you to read. Whether you are running errands around town with your children, taking a family road-trip for vacation or if a urgent crisis required you to head out of town, your vehicle needs to always be up to the task.


Catastrophic failures often begin as seemingly small problems, which lead to increasingly large problems, and ultimately to failure. On something as critical as your G.O.O.D. vehicle, it is important to trap “error chains” and address seemingly small problems right away, or better yet, prevent them from happening in the first place. I will begin by addressing the most critical systems, where failure would be most likely, and which would bring you instantly to your automotive knees.
