Replacing the Oil

Changing the oil on a Volvo does the engine a favor. Old oil or oil used for too many miles can't do its job correctly. Fuel economy suffers, and an engine becomes dirty. Also, engine components will receive unnecessary wear and tear on every drive around Baton Rouge.

Our team here in Baton Rouge can drain the engine and put new oil into it while also replacing the air filter. While changing the oil, the team can inspect several engine parts to make sure they are in decent shape. Reaching 5,000 miles or six months of use are the two common points a driver usually changes the oil. Check your owner's manual for specifics.

Rotate the Tires

Every six months, it makes sense to rotate the tires. Rotating the tires, switching the tires from back-to-front and vice versa, is an easy-to-perform maintenance step. And it is one keeps tires from prematurely wearing out. Wear isn't even, as the front tires can wear out quicker. Poor handling or even blowouts can result. Tire rotation helps prevent this problem.

A Chance to Check the Tires and Brakes

Tire rotation services also allow a mechanic to check the condition of the tires. Air pressure, tread depth, and sidewall condition are all things the technician can examine. The rotation also affords a chance to check for leaks. Removing the tires makes it possible to perform a brake inspection. You always want an idea about the brakes' condition, and a thorough inspection provides information.
