Your Volvo might be brand new or several years old, but whatever its age or condition, it will benefit from regular care that extends beyond the occasional washing and waxing. Your owner's manual provides a general guideline for when to service certain engine components, what the ideal pressure for your tires is and plenty of other useful advice.

There are a lot of little things you can do for your Volvo even if you have extremely limited experience working with cars. Monthly tire pressure checks are also a good opportunity to look at the tread and make sure it's not worn too low. You can also turn on your headlights and turn signals to see if they're illuminating properly.

Seasonal maintenance of your Volvo is particularly important no matter where you are in the Encinitas and Oceanside area. Fluctuating weather can take a heavy toll on your battery, so you'll want someone to inspect it to ensure it's up for the challenge of the season ahead. You can also have tires for the appropriate season put on your car and make sure fluids like antifreeze and windshield washer fluid are filled.

As your car ages, it will require more advanced maintenance that usually falls into the realm of the professional mechanic, like replacing a serpentine or timing belt or an inspection of your coolant fluid exchange system and a test of your shocks and struts.
