How do you care for your RAM 1500? Do you monitor the fluid levels of the truck at all times? Do you ensure that fluids don’t get too low or don’t become too dirty or dusty? If so, you are doing everything possible to make sure that the vehicle runs smoothly, which can help extend the life of your car. The team at Vicksburg Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM offers these tips for fluid maintenance.

Brake Fluid

Brake fluid makes it easy for your brakes to operate. When there isn’t enough brake fluid in your car it could lead to problems with the brakes, including having trouble coming to a complete stop. You could struggle immensely with getting the brake pedal to push down and this is an obvious sign that you are low on brake fluid.

Engine Oil

Routine maintenance for your RAM 1500 includes changing of the engine oil. This should be done every 3,000 to 5,000 miles or every three months. Changing the engine oil ensures that the engine runs smoothly and there is enough moisture in the engine to prevent parts from breaking. You should have the engine oil changed at our service department for proper disposal.

Windshield Wiper Fluid

Windshield wiper fluid makes it easy for drivers to see everything in front of them. When there isn’t enough fluid to clean the windshield you will have trouble seeing the lights of the cars coming at you and everything else going on around you.

If it is time to have the fluids of your RAM 1500 topped off or replaced you should schedule an appointment for service with our experienced technicians. The more often you monitor the vehicle fluids, the less likely it is that you will have problems with the vehicle running smoothly.
