Did you know that April is National Car Care Month? That means anyone who owns and loves their car should dedicate some time this month to making sure it is running in tip-top shape. At Ourisman Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM, we have some easy recommendations to help you celebrate National Car Care Month in the most effective way possible:

1. Check Fluid Levels

By regularly checking the fluid levels in your car, you’re decreasing the likelihood of an unexpected breakdown. All fluids are vital, and it can be the difference in avoiding costly repairs down the line. Take, for example, the engine oil. If there isn’t enough oil lubricating your engine, metals can grind and your engine can stop working altogether.

2. Inspect All Hoses

Under the hood, there are numerous types of hoses that transfer fluids and sometimes ambient air into other parts of the engine bay to help them run smoothly. But these hoses don’t last forever, so it’s a good thing to always check up on them because a leak can be detrimental to the health of your engine.

3. Check Your Brakes

The brake system can singlehandedly save lives, and it’s important to regularly have it inspected them to make sure it’s still in optimal condition. There are many components within the brake system, like the brake pads and brake lines, and each one can succumb to normal wear.

April is our favorite because of National Car Care Month, and we always want to do our best in imparting our knowledge to all loyal and new customers. Make an appointment today in Dodge service center. We hope to see you soon!
