Basic Vehicle Maintenance

mechanic tops of oil

To keep your Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, or RAM vehicle running and in good condition for many years, it’s important to keep up with basic vehicle maintenance. These routine car services ensure that you have a safe and uneventful drive, whether you’re headed to work in Memphis or you’re heading out on a roadtrip from Oxford, MS.

Oil Changes

Regularly checking your oil and getting an oil change when needed is important. This helps your vehicle’s engine work properly and prevents more severe damage from happening. Refer to your owner’s manual, but a good rule of thumb is that regular oil should be changed  every 4,000 to 6,000 miles

Tire Rotations

Your vehicle’s tires experience wear at different rates. The front tires can wear down more quickly than the back. To ensure even wear and prolong the life of your tires, it’s important to have your tires rotated approximately every 5,000 miles. A good time for a tire rotation is when you get your oil changed. This will help your tires last for 40,000 to 80,000 miles, on average.

Air Filters

Aside from gas and oil, your engine also needs air to work properly. Your vehicle is designed to work with air flowing into the engine bay. If your air filter is dirty, it can obstruct the air flow and effect performance and fuel efficiency. You can also have the air filter changed with the oil is changed –approximately every 4,000 to 6,000 miles.

Windshield Wipers

There’s no set amount of time to change your windshield wipers, but they are a crucial part of your vehicle that helps maintain proper visibility. If your wipers aren’t fully clearing your windshield, or they’re leaving streaks and smudges, it’s time to have them replaced. A good rule of thumb is to check your windshield wipers when you’re doing spring automotive maintenance or when it’s time to winterize your car.

Regularly Inspect Your Vehicle

Every month or so, it’s a good idea to check on these aspects of your vehicle to ensure that everything is in proper working order:

  • All warning lights should be in working order.
  • Tire pressure should be at the correct level, which you can check with a tire air pressure gauge.
  • Tire tread shouldn’t be too low. Check this by putting a penny in the groove of your tire with the top of Lincoln’s head facing the tire. If you can see all of Lincoln’s head, it’s time for new tires.
  • Wiper fluid, antifreeze, colant, and other liquids should be at the proper levels. You should also check for leaks.
