So I plan on heading out on the 2nd of April to Florida via Delaware. It will be my longest road trip w/ the Imp so far and I compiled a list of maint. before I hit the road.

Differential gasket w/holes
Front brake pads/fluid flush/caliper lube
Serpintine belt
Fuel filter
Grease fittin's

I'd like to do, but not ergent, TB bypass
Anything I'm missing or mine as well type stuff?

New wipers. Washer fluid. AC charged?

Maybe a coolant flush or drain/refill if it's an unknown.

More than likely though, it's fine just the way it sits. Wink

Make sure you have a good condition spare as well as a small gas can. I95 gets mighty lonely once you get south of Washington/Baltimore.
