Check all the fluids and closely monitor them throughout the trip. You should do fine. I continuously go on 1000+ plus trips in my 93 and never have an issue. Just be cautious and don't push it too hard.

well I usually get the oil changed before a long trip. Tire pressure is another overlooked item that will save you gas. Have a safe trip. Come back now ya hear

I always bring motor oil, small bottle of brake fluid, steering fluid, panty hose.. Ensure that if you're stuck in traffic jam.. to keep an eye on your temp gauge.. Call me paranoid.. but anytime my car just over 90C I turn on the A/C to get the fan going ( Yea.. been lazy and not done the mods like Willwren has )

Default Trip

In addition to all the recommendations I allways have a habit of bringing an empty
container for water or fuel and I like to bring my 1.99 tire plug kit.
It could save you lots of money in towing or highway robbery repair bills.
The SSE has the pump in the trunk so your good to go.
