Maintaining your Chrysler vehicle doesn’t have to be difficult. Our Chrysler service makes it easy with this guide that lets you know what your car needs and when to get it:
Every Few Months
· Fluid Top-Off
You should keep a close eye on all of the components in your car that require fluids. These include the braking and power steering systems, transmission, and windshield wipers. It’s important that fluids remain at the right levels and some – like the wiper fluid – get used up over time.
· Air Pressure Check
You don’t want to just rely on your car’s built-in gauge to let you know if the air in one or more tires is low, as you should check it yourself. Ensuring the air pressure is correct boosts safety and fuel economy.
Every 6 Months
· Oil Change
Your oil should be changed about every six months, regardless of how often you drive. This is because it thickens up as it ages. Your oil filter should also be cleaned or replaced if it is too dirty.
· Tire Rotation
It’s a smart idea to have your tires rotated whenever you get your oil changed. This helps ensure that they wear down evenly, which makes them last a lot longer.
· Battery Test
It’s important to know how much life a battery has remaining, as they don’t last that long, typically only between three and six years.
· Brake Inspection
It’s not an overstatement to stay that it’s critical that your brakes are always in excellent condition. Over time, however, things like shoes and pads wear out and need to be replaced.
If your car needs any of these tasks – or perhaps all of them – you can make an appointment now with the service center at Vicksburg Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM.
