There’s no doubt that Chrysler vehicles are quality vehicles that are built to last. However, they still need regular maintenance to keep them running like new. That’s why we can’t stress enough the importance of a Chrysler oil change at Ourisman Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM of Bowie.
Why Do I Need an Oil Change?
Your engine oil helps keep the parts under your hood lubricated. Without it, they can cause excess heat and friction. That extra heat can end up warping the parts. It can also cause your engine to completely overheat and completely shut down.
How Often Do I Need an Oil Change?
We recommend you consult with a service professional to determine how often you should change your oil. Your recommended schedule can vary depending on how old your vehicle is and its mileage. It also varies on what type of oil you use. Vehicles that utilize newer synthetic oil can go up to 10,000 miles between oil changes.
What Other Type of Maintenance Do I Need?
Oil changes are just part of your vehicle’s routine maintenance. Just as your engine oil is important to help protect your engine, a filter is important to help protect the oil. Your filters need to be regularly inspected and replaced.
It’s also important to regularly inspect your tire tread depth. They should also be rotated to help keep them from wearing unevenly. There are also many fluids that need to be routinely checked and replenished.
- Transmission fluid
- Brake fluid
- Windshield wiper fluid
- Power steering fluid
