  1. Evaporative leak: Evaporative emissions are caused by fuel volatility, or its tendency to change from liquid to gas.
  2. Engine hesitation or surge: This problem may occur for a variety of issues, such as a dirty air filter, which can require the engine to work much harder and can cause drivability problems.
  3. Overheating: Some of the most common reasons cars and trucks overheat are a faulty cooling system or low fluid level.
  4. Flat tire/blowout: One of the most common culprits of road-trip delays are flat tires, which can be caused by wear and tear or over inflation in summer months caused by increased air pressure from the heat.
  5. No start: Car batteries rarely signal failure ahead of time and often occur at the most inopportune time, such as during a getaway. Hot summer months are the worst conditions for your battery. Make sure your vehicle has all of the plastic pieces that surround the battery.
