Default Cross Country trip in 1994 LS 400

Hi all! Getting ready to move back to California and was planning on bringing our 1994 LS 400. Just had the catalytic converter and o2 sensors replaced (ouch!) plus a full tuneup and 4 new tires and recent brake job. She has 200Kmiles and aside from some usual window quirks, she runs great. Anything you would recommend our mechanic check before our trip? thanks!

If you've recently done the timing belt, then check your fluids and get on the road. What are you waiting for?

I would just check fluids and tire pressures before making the trip. don't forget to check your spare tire to make sure it's ready to use too just in case.

Agreed. OP, sounds like you are going to be good to go. Drive safe!

I wouldn't hesitate to drive my LS from coast to coast.
