Vehicle kit

Recommended Posts

Ok, so one thing I've neglected is putting together a basic vehicle kit to fix minor issues. Right now I only have a car, truck will come later. Anyways, so far I've got a basic 20 something piece Craftsman tool set, 5 chemlights, and a DieHard battery jumper/charger. I plan to add some road flares, tire patch kit, work gloves, and blanket. Any other ideas? I've got my BHG with food, clothes, etc.

One thing I've been told by tire people is not to use fix-a-flat. If you do the tire people will not fix the tire. For this reason a keep a full size (not a donut) tire and a big jack in my truck. The spare tire is just that - a spare since its pretty worn out. My father also told me to keep a bottle of Coke in the car too. Supposedly it helps with the corrosion on the battery connectors? Never had to try it out so I'm not sure if it really works! Otherwise maybe some electrical tape and an emergency candle. I heard that it can heat a small car up by a couple of degrees.

Well I think I'm more concerned about being stranded somewhere and making it to civilization. Unfortunately, cars only carry donuts, rather patch it and pay for a new tire than try to survive on a donut. Yes, coke will take corrosion off metal, common science experiment to take rust off nails with coke, the acid in it causes the reaction. Good thinking on the tape and candle.

Tiere chains is a good addition if you live in an area that get snow and ice storms....like Ohio. Tow strap spare fuses if you don't have them duct tape, I had to break a window glass that was stuck down free of the holder in the door once to get it up in the middle of winter ice storm once thanks to duct tape I didn't freeze it was the driver window and I pulled it up and ran a few pieces of duct tape over the top to hold it up

Oh, good one. I've got spare fuses, but completely forgot I should put them in there.

If we were gonna travel and the weather forecasts were on the nasty side, I always made sure I had water and some MREs for however many people were with me...enough for two to three days worth.

 

But that's just me feeding my paranoia and expecting the worst.

The can of coke does indeed work. I have had to use it a couple of times on my old battery in my truck. When I finally went to buy a new one, turns out the one that was in it was 12 years old, and the original one that came with the truck out of the factory! The coke works but I'll be damned if I'm keeping a can or bottle of it in my truck during winter. Idont need a coke-slushie all over the cab. Instead, think about getting a stiff wire brush. may not be as pretty or thorough but it will get the job done nice enough.

Hmm, yea, didn't think about that. Maybe I won't bother with that at all. I check my donut in the trunk regularly and I have AAA so I'm not too worried. If/when I have a truck, I'll carry a compressor, etc, just not practical for a car.

If you maintain your vehicle well you shouldn't need a brush for your battery terminals. They should be ok. I keep a candle in a metal coffee can for heat/lighting in the winter along with additional warm clothing, hats, gloves, etc. Jumper cables to help others.

I keep the following in a medium sized duffle bag in my trunk.

 

  • Small first aid kit
  • Set screw drivers
  • Adjustable wrench
  • Wire cutters
  • Pliers
  • Flashlight
  • Jumper cables
  • Tire repair kit (Used it many times on other people's tires)
  • Compressor (check this out - cheap and small, and I use it often; http://www.harborfreight.com/12-volt-100-psi-high-volume-air-compressor-69284.html)
  • Two bottles of drinking water (for drinking or for filling radiators or cleaning up
  • Road flares
  • A couple cherry flavor survival bars
  • Set of straps for tying things down (or holding things up until you get home)

 

 

I also have a crate that I keep in my car with. A car in better condition than mine might not require such extra planning.

 

  • Oil (my car drinks it, so have to top it off every week)
  • Repair manual for the car
  • Coolant
  • Gloves
  • Spare t-shirt in a large baggie

 

 

This is just me, and everyone is different. Just some things to consider. :-)

Just remember if you are in a first aid situation that the tourniquet is an ABSOLUTE LAST RESORT! When you makethe decision to add a tourniquet you are deciding that in their situation they will be better off without a limb for the rest of their life. Try everything else thatyou can to stop the bleeding. Tourniquet is basically " if i dont put this on them they WILL die." Lose an arm or die as itwere.

Spare serpentine belt & enough tools to install it. WD-40. If I have 1/2" sockets anyway I always carry a break-over bar and a cheater pipe for them so I can remove real stubborn lug nuts. 4 way wrench is a good idea also.

 

Spare fuses and a needle nose pliers or multi-tool. LED magnetic flashing light or two (so you can alert traffic and save your battery if stuck)

 

It's also a good idea to crawl under your car on a nice dry driveway sometime and figure out where you can hook a chain/tow rope to it and then carry whatever you need to do that in your car. Modern cars don't always have much of a place to hook to. A tow rope and clevis, chain, whatever you need to get the looped tow rope attached to your car.

 

If you are in a cold area with ice and winter storms a jug of de-icer washer fluid, spare wiper blades, and a bottle of HEAT are good to have in the vehicle also. A gallon ice cream bucket full of sand can sometimes do wonders to throw under your tire on ice for traction.

 

Good flashlight and chemical heater packs, cheap Walmart 20 degree sleeping bag, rain poncho, knife, lighter

Oh yeah, having a car is no reason not to have a 12V air compressor. You don't need as big or nice a one, but it is an essential for every vehicle in my book. The compressor will likely also have a decent flashlight built in. That and a plug kit are both essential. Choose a plug kit with T handles and it is much easier to use.

Catfish - Excellent list of items, especially the de-icer fluid and good advice. Not sure too many folks carry the belt. I don't but since I do have my truck serviced on schedule, hopefully it will be replaced before it goes too worn. Thanks.

I have an older truck 1969 Chevrolet Truck and I carry a few things to mostly make small road side repairs, I have roadside help through my insurance so I can always count on a low cost tow, gas, and jump start options. I still carry the following

 

-Jumper cables

-5 gallon gas container locked with a bicycle cable lock in the truck bed(with 3 gallon I don't keep it full).

-Road Flares

-tire plug kit

-some hand tools

-spare fuses and wire connectors

-Flashlight and extra batteries

-gallon of water and P.O.L.'s

pretty much if I cant fix it on the side of the road I will call for a tow truck.

Heavy chevy...69 is a good year. I suggest a couple of additions to your kit...(1) a way to pump up that flat. (2) stabil fuel treatment for your emergency fuel & rotate it every so often as gas can deteriorate over time. Oh yea pick up a head band light as it will help if having to fix it at night....although I hope no-one has that happen to them.
