When it comes to ensuring the longevity of your Jeep® Wrangler, you get what you put in. Ourisman Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM has you covered when it comes to regular servicing, but what does maintain your Wrangler mean?
Here is an overview of some tips for extending the life of your Jeep Wrangler.
Regular Oil Changes
Of the many maintenance points on your service schedule, regular oil changes are still probably the most important.
The age-old advice of getting your oil changed every 3,000 miles has given over in recent years to getting your oil serviced every 5,000 to 7,500 miles.
Keeping fresh oil running through your engine ensures that your engine stays lubricated, prevents engine wear, and improves gas mileage. When your engine is running at its peak efficiency, you’ll see your money go a lot further at the gas pump.
Seasonal Service Checks
Each year, be sure to keep up with service tasks as the seasons change. Beyond oil changes, you’ll want to test and check your battery and battery terminals, clean and lubricate all your locks, and replace your weather stripping as needed.
Long-Term Service Tiers
You’ll need to attend to your car’s condition at the 20,000, 40,000 and 60,000 mile marks. These milestones have different levels of long-term service attached to them, but here are the basics you’ll need to check and/or replace:
- air filter
- brake lines and hoses
- inspect transmission
- inspect all steering components
- inspect exhaust components
- inspect ball joints and dust covers
If you hit these service milestones, your Jeep Wrangler will last as long as you need it to. Schedule a service visit at Ourisman Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM-Bowie today!
