College car maintanence survival kit

I condensed my big service box down to a smaller handheld toolbox to keep me running/ make a buck when I move to university this fall!

I've got about all I can think of,
-fan tools(even tho I drive a manual)
Full deep/shallow 3/8 set and ratchet
-torx set
Full flat wrench set
-brake lube
-various pliers and such
-magnet trays and strip
-obd scanner and dmm
-various screwdrivers

Anything I could be missing, or have a funny/ nightmare college car repair? Let me know!

And as always thank you wonderful guys for the support and info.

College survival? Get a Honda and keep the box at home. I don't know how much fun you'd have or money you'd make repairing stuff at odd-ball parking spots.

Totally overlooked Allen keys! I'll pick up a socket set when I'm at work.

A few cheap Harbor Freight torque wrenches should go in there too, can't forget to properly torque! I also like to have gloves, zip ties, RTV and and JB weld, you just never know!
