All Star Chevrolet North’s Winter Vehicle Tips

Tis the season of properly caring for you vehicle in the colder months. The cool temperature can wreak havoc on our vehicles this time of year. Even though we are in South Louisiana, it is always important to know how to care for your vehicle properly when the colder air does hit. Here are a few simple tips to keep your vehicle in good working order this winter.

When was the last time you inspected your tires?  Your tire pressure must be properly inflated to guarantee that you will have the best traction during your daily commutes. Not to mention, poorly inflated tires are often jeopardized during wet and icy roads. The tire pressure in tires will likely drop as the air gets colder, so read your owner’s manual to find out the perfect air temperature for your tires.

Your vehicle’s antifreeze has to be just right! Ideally it should be a 50-50 mix of coolant and water inside of your radiator. Having this perfect ratio will prevent the mixture from freezing at colder temperatures. You can easily check the status of the mixture yourself with a low-cost antifreeze tester.

Knowing these few tips can prolong the life of your vehicle. Safety is a top priority when driving during the winter months, so make sure your vehicle is prepared this season. The weather is ever-changing here in Louisiana, so be prepared and get ahead with your winter vehicle maintenance. Schedule your service appointment with us today!

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 Chevrolet North has compiled a few tips and recommendations in order to get your vehicle in tip-top shape before the season changes!

Auto Maintenance Schedule, Car Repair Tips

  • Check Your Battery

Keeping your battery connections clean, tight and corrosion-free are highly important! The summer months were tough on your car battery, but the cold weather can be every tougher if you don’t properly take care of your vehicle’s battery. In addition, if your vehicle’s battery is older than three-years-old, we recommend you look at replacing it sometime soon. Batteries don’t give a warning on when they start failing, so it is always better to be safe than sorry!

  • Heater, Defrosters and Wiper Blades

Make sure to check that the heating, ventilating and air conditioning system are working properly. Heating and cooling performance is vital for those cold mornings and hot afternoons and for safety reasons! The last thing you want is to be late to school or work because you’re defroster was not working! In addition, checking your wiper blades is just as important. In Louisiana, we tend to have lots of afternoon showers. This leads to worn out wiper blades and streaky windshields.

  • Brakes

Have the brake system checked, including brake linings, rotors and drums. Brakes are critical to vehicle safety and particularly important when driving on slick roads in the colder months. Many people overlook this step since we don’t get snow in Louisiana, but you should be routinely getting your vehicle’s brakes checked!

These are just a few things All Star Chevrolet North 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!
