My son had an accident in which his car ended up in a slight ditch and caught on fire after the gas tank was apparently punctured. My son thankfully was fine - he was able to get out quickly.

If you have car trouble, sometimes it’s safe to schedule a service appointment for later in the week. Other times, it’s important to drive to a car repair shop right away. There are even times when you need to shut your car off and call a tow truck to transport your vehicle to a mechanic. To learn more about the car problems that will require you to call a towing service, read this blog.
Insufficient Amount of Engine Oil
Motor oil is the lifeblood of your car’s engine. If your car doesn’t have enough engine oil, the engine will experience more friction, which causes it to overheat. Keep an eye on your car’s engine oil, because it’s possible that some can leak out or even get burned up if your car’s engine is older.
Filling Up With the Wrong Fuel
While drivers rarely fill up with the incorrect fuel, it’s important to recognize that the consequences of this can be very serious. If you have a gasoline engine and accidentally just filled your tank with diesel fuel, or vice versa, call roadside assistance as soon as possible. If you drive your car with the wrong fuel, the engine will seize up immediately.
Timing Belt Problem
A timing belt problem is easy to ignore or forget about, as symptoms of a timing belt problem are not detectable on the road until it’s too late. To be on the safe side, ask your mechanic to perform a timing belt inspection each time you go in for an oil change.
Have you noticed any engine coolant or fuel under your car? If so, you should have your car towed immediately to a repair shop. If you drive your car with a water pump leak or a fuel leak, the engine could suffer major damage.

Prepping your vehicle for summer isn’t all that difficult, and it can save you the frustration of getting stranded on the side of the road with a blowout, an overheated engine, or worse. Keep your car and your family and friends safe on road with these guidelines:
Preventative maintenance is one of the most important things you can do to keep your car running reliably. Be sure to check fluid levels and quality, tire inflation and tread wear, and the electrical system for broken lights or gauges.
You can’t predict if a major breakdown will leave you stranded and waiting for roadside assistance or towing, but you can take steps to address minor emergencies. Keep an emergency kit on hand with basic tools, fuses, dry food and water, a spare cell phone, and a first aid kit.

Most people overlook their tires until they need to be replaced, but they affect everything from handling to fuel economy. Make sure they’re inflated to manufacture specifications and that the tread is more than one-eighth of an inch. Also check the level and condition of your car’s fluids—particularly the coolant—to prevent any unexpected breakdowns.
