All Star Ford Lincoln’s Winter Vehicle Tips

1

We all are excited for the cooler temperatures this season, as we are needing a break from the summer temperatures. Our vehicle was not at the top of mind during the summer season, but we have to give our vehicle a little more TLC this time of year. We have gathered a few winter vehicle tips, in order to keep your vehicle in top shape this holiday season.

Have you been holding off the time for an oil change? Well procrastinate no more! Your vehicle should have the right viscosity, or thickness of oil at this time of year. Oil tends to thicken as the temperature drops, and if it is too thick, it would not do the best job of lubricating your vehicle’s engine.

Our vehicle’s battery always needs TLC, but this is a perfect time of the year to make sure your battery’s posts and connections are corrosion free, and that it has plenty of water. If you have a battery that is three years old, come in to have our shop test the battery’s ability to hold a charge.

Following these simple tips can help keep your vehicle in peak condition during the mild winter weather. Prolonging the maintenance on your vehicle during winter, could be life-endangering during the cooler temperatures. Schedule your service appointment with us today!

My Review of All Star Ford Lincoln:

This purchase experience has been the best of any vehicle that I have purchased in the past. Patrick Mckay went above and beyond what I expected to deal with…he was very professional and knowledgeable. In fact the experience was enough for me to refer my dad to All Star at which he too had the same experience and purchased a new 2016 Explorer the same day that he walked in. I hope to have my F150 for many years to come, but if the need arises I will return to All Star Ford for any future vehicle purchases!!!

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

  • Check All Fluid Levels

This includes washer fluid, along with transmission, brake and power steering fluids. Make sure they are all at or above minimum safe levels and refill as necessary. This is very important because the summer months tend to suck all the fluid out of our vehicles due to the scorching heat! This will ensure your vehicle will be running smoothly for the colder months!

  • Check Your Tires

Checking your tires, tire pressure and treat depth before seasons change is very important. Uneven wear can indicate a need for wheel alignment. During the colder months, tire pressure should be checked weekly because tires lose pressure when the temperatures drop.

  • Survival Kit

Put together a winter car survival kit. Jumper cables, flares, ice scrapers, road salt, flashlights, flares, blankets, first aid materials and snacks are all good to include in your kit. You will be prepared for any type of weather which is crucial!

These are just a few things All Star Ford Lincoln 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!

Back to School for Your Car Too!

Back to School Road Sign with Dramatic Clouds and Sky.

Although it may still feel like summer time outside, back-to-school time is right around the corner. August is always a busy month for parents and kids. Parents are trying to squeeze in last minute vacations and the kids are wanting to play with their friends all day! One item that is not usually on the top of the to-do list when heading back to school is your vehicle maintenance. Whether you’re attending high school, heading back to college or you’re the chauffeur for your family, your vehicle is going to need a little TLC before heading back to school and work!

Up-To-Date

Before your college-bound kiddo hits the road, make sure their vehicle has an up-to-date inspection sticker, car registration, driver’s license and an insurance card. At most colleges, these are the things your child will need in order to purchase a parking tag to be able to park on campus. This may be tedious to check and update, but these are vital things in order to send your child on the road to college!

Know Your Car

Pay attention to your car and familiarize your child with the car as well. Make sure they know where they can find the safety equipment, spare tire and owner’s manual. Familiarize yourselves with the particular noises of your car so you are more aware of anything unfamiliar and different.

Stay Organized

The cars of busy college students and parents with children in school often resemble cargo trucks after the start of school. Books, sports equipment, gym shoes, etc. often find a permanent home in vehicles. So stay organized! There are a number of bags and organizers which can help maximize the space in your trunk. Carve out some space just for your safety equipment so you will always be prepared.

Make sure to schedule a service appointment with one of our certified technicians that will be able to service your vehicle and get you back on the road! Doing routine maintenance on your vehicle will not only ensure your safety on the road, but it will also prolong the life of your vehicle!

National Car Care Month

2016-04-11 National Car Care Month

April is National Care Car Month! “Why April?” you may ask yourself. In April, as winter comes to an end, it is time to get your Ford or Lincoln ready for spring driving and summer road trips! National Car Care Month reminds you to take care of any issues that may have occurred or been ignored during winter. Spring time is filled with sunshine, some afternoon showers and lots of pollen. Make sure your vehicle’s tires are rotated, balanced and in good condition for those wet roads. Deep potholes aren’t friendly to shocks and struts. An inspection to determine wear or leaks can alleviate bigger issues down the road. Also having your wheels properly aligned after a season of tough conditions can help keep you on the road in a safe direction. Also make sure your windshield wiper blades are being replaced every 6-12 months to avoid streaking on your windshield.

With all of that pollen in the air, your vehicle’s air filter can get clogged up pretty quickly. Make sure you are routinely checking and changing it to ensure optimal air flow is being produced. When it comes to your vehicle’s safety, the brake system is at the top of the list. Making sure your brakes are working properly before you head out on those slick roads or long summer road trips will ensure for a safe and comfortable ride! Brakes are a normal wear item for any car and eventually they’re going to need to be replaced. For routine maintenance, check your vehicle’s braking system at least once a year. A thorough inspection should include brake lining wear, brake fluid level, rotor thickness, condition of hoses and brake lines, brake and dash warning lights, as well as taking the car for a test drive to detect other potential brake system problems.
