Just wondering what tools some of you keep in your cars for emergencies or quick repairs.
If I were taking a trip ( leaving town ). I would carry quite a bit of tools. But just running around in town I would not carry any at all.
My leatherman and a AAA card is all that's required.
Can of fix-a-flat (no spare), various screw drivers, duct tape
if I can't make a minor adjustment and get.it going I call a rollback.
I got way too much money in mine to try and patch something... I get it home and do proper repairs where I have tools.
Same here, getting to old to be working on cars at the side of the road!
Here a just a few, there could be more.
-Old fan and PS belts
-screwdriver that holds various bits
-flare nut wrenches
-points/condenser (left in glove box) in case my Crane unit dies.
-timing light maybe
I've had my Camaro for 44 years and it has never needed any tools on the road. It has been one of the most reliable vehicles I've ever owned. It has never had a problem that needed immediate attention while I was driving it.
2 summers ago I had a small slit develop from the hose clamp on the heater hose that connects to the intake. When I installed the hoses I kept the hoses long just in case they needed to be trimmed back from wear. At 1st I thought my intake gasket let loose.
