Recently bought a '95 V-12 droptop and am planning to fly to NY and drive it back to Texas (via the east and gulf coasts; +/- 2,500 miles); Car has about 70K miles and no known issues. I would appreciate the collective advice of the forum as to what would be good items to check/replace/repair in preparation for the trip - the car will have new tires on the original wheels. A/C is currently working so, except for refrigerant level, I’m not sure what to check (if it works, it works, I guess). I plan to take some tools and hard to find consumables such as belts, hoses, plugs, fuses, etc. I am a cruise control user, but again, if it works, it works, no?
This is my first XJS so I’m wondering about overheating - should that be a problem and what can I do to prevent it (radiator, water pump?) - will drive mostly backroads but some full speed Interstate work is also likely.
All comments and advice appreciated.
