Default Survival kit

05 GT 185K miles
Since I am sneaking up on 200K miles, I started thinking it might be a good idea to carry some high failure parts with me so I could get going again with a little roadside maintenence.

So far I am thinking:
Surpentine belt
Alternator belt
Cam sesnor
Fuses/relays

What would you include?

You forgot a roll of toilet paper, you never know when the napkins in the glovebox/console won't be enough.

Since 200k miles, I've had my car towed for this:
  • Timing belt
  • Fuel pump
  • Ignition Coil
Might want to revise your list.

If you think your belts are due for replacement, don't keep them in an emergency kit. Just change them ahead of time. The alternator belt would be a very miserable roadside project.

I've also had my lower radiator hose spring a leak. maybe consider some type of patch kit. Personally, i hate fixing stuff roadside.
I letter tow trucks so tows are no big deal. I Call one of my customers to get my car, then I bring the receipt to state farm and get my money back.

Sure Plum: You'd likely be bored at times, all those malfunctions will give you something to clear.
