Have a Game Plan For Fall Service

With fall quickly approaching, it is important to have your vehicle ready for the chilly temperatures ahead. Although it does not snow or get too terribly cold here in South Louisiana, you still need to have your car service and ready for the fall weather that will soon be upon us! All Star Volvo of Baton Rouge has compiled a few tips and recommendations in order to get your vehicle in tip-top shape before the season changes!

Fluids

  • Check the oil

You car’s engine oil is always important, but it is especially so during the fall and winter. If your oil level is low, you should contact your local auto body shop and schedule an oil change. It is also recommended that you use a multi-grade viscosity oil for winter driving, just in case!

  • Cooling system

The cooling system should be flushed and refilled as recommended. The level, condition, and concentration of the coolant should be checked periodically. A 50/50 mix of antifreeze and water is usually recommended. Do-It-Yourselfers: Never remove the radiator cap until the engine has thoroughly cooled! The tightness and condition of drive belts, clamps, and hoses also should be checked regularly by one of our professional technicians!

  • Check the brakes and tires.

Inclement weather and associated road conditions and other hazards require good stopping power. That means good brakes and tires. If the tires have wear bars showing, say the experts, you need to replace the tires. Most good brake and tire shops will inspect the brakes and tires at no charge. Also check the tire pressure, as tire pressure drops when the outside temperatures plummet.

These are just a few things All Star Volvo of Baton Rouge suggests you check before the fall season rolls around! Taking care of your vehicle and routinely getting it serviced will ensure your vehicle will last a lot longer! Make sure to schedule your service appointment, and view all of our Service Specials!

When should you replace your vehicle’s air filter?

Air Filter

When the airflow in your vehicle is significantly blocked, it’s time to replace your vehicle’s air filter. A clogged filter results in lousy fuel economy and subpar performance. It’s crucial to replace your air filter before it completely compromises airflow, but it’s also beneficial to have a slightly dirty air filter to block out tiny particles. So, if you’re wondering how often you should change your air filter or when to change your air filter, All Star Volvo of Baton Rouge is here with the answers!

Every vehicle’s maintenance schedule is different, but on average, Volvo suggests your vehicle’s air filter should be changed every 20,000. Every vehicle is different and some can go longer than others, but you also need to take into consideration how much you’re driving, and what your driving conditions are. If you’re driving on the highway every day for work or school, then your vehicle’s air filter won’t have to be replaced until you hit 20,000. But if you’re driving on dirt roads and gravel, then you will probably need to replace your vehicle’s air filter every 12,000-15,000 miles. If you’re still unsure about when you should replace your vehicle’s air filter, you can schedule a maintenance appointment and have one of our highly trained technicians take a look at it!

You can schedule a service appointment online 24/7 here.
