The Volvo Severe Maintenance Schedule

Every Volvo comes with a normal and a severe maintenance schedule. You need to be able to identify which schedule you need to be following in order to prevent wear and tear and extend the life of your car.

Some reasons to follow a severe maintenance schedule include:

  • If you live in a high humidly climate
  • If you live in a very dusty area
  • If you live in an area where it is regularly below 12 degrees or above 32 degrees
  • If you are driving a fleet vehicle or service vehicle that is seeing more use than an average car (i.e. police car, taxi, tow truck)
  • If you only take very short trips, or drive in stop and go traffic daily

Volvo High Kilometre Maintenance

If you reach over 160,000 kilometres on your Volvo this means you have done a great job at keeping up with your suggested Volvo maintenance schedule. However, as your Volvo gets older, and has more kilometres on it, it will begin to need maintenance more often and you must be even more diligent about keeping up with car maintenance.

If you are over 160,000 kilometres you will need oil changes more frequently to keep your engine safe – about every 5,000 kilometres rather than every 8,000-10,000 kilometres. At this time make sure you have your mechanic checking all fluids, your brakes, belts, and other hoses to stay on top of any developing problems

At 160,000 kilometres it is also time for a new timing belt if you did not replace this part at the 130,000-kilometre mark, as this crucial part needs to be replaced every 130,000-kilometres.

Manual Transmission Car Maintenance

Back in the day maintaining a manual transmission car used to be considered easier than maintaining an automatic transmission car. However, these days the maintenance requirements are about even.

Manual transmission cars will typically need at least one clutch replacement throughout their lifetime, and it is important to watch out for warning signs that your clutch is beginning to slip.

Warning signs will include:

  • Your clutch is hard to press
  • Your clutch feels too soft
  • Your transmission won’t stay in gear
  • There are unusual noises coming from your transmission
  • You find it hard to shift gears

Regular Servicing Is Important!

Brakes and Tyres are Your Stopping Power

Your Brakes are the most important component of your vehicle. At Highway Auto Rockhampton we offer a no obligation inspection to make sure that your brakes are working at their best.

According to a study by the NRMA, bad brakes are partially to blame for approximately 22% of crashes caused by vehicle-related conditions (second only to tyre problems, which account for 35% of such crashes).

Since crashes can severely shorten your vehicle’s lifespan (and compromise your safety), it’s vital to take care of any car issues that could heighten your risk for collisions! Get your tyres and brakes checked during a Complete Vehicle Inspection at the first sign of common tyre problems or brake issues to help you steer clear of performance problems that can affect your safety on the road.

Additionally, a complete vehicle inspection can give you a more in-depth look at your car’s inner workings, helping you make more informed service and repair decisions!
