Keep your vehicle in peak condition all year by following these seasonal tips. 

Time for some post-winter clean up in the Spring!

Tires -
Make sure you change from your
 snow or winter tires to regular all
 season. This is a perfect time to
rotate them to extend the life of the set. 


Wiper Blades -
Cold temps are hard on rubber
components and when salt comes
 into the mix, it deteriorates even faster.
Make sure you check the wiper fluid, too!


Examine your brakes - 
Listen for brake noises such as
grinding, 
chatter, or squeals. Even
if you don't hear anything, it always
helps to have a Mopar certified
 technician to determine the wear

on the pads or drums. We get used to
worn down brakes without noticing. 


Check all fluids -
Top off as necessary. Winter driving
 conditions require your engine to work
 harder and condensation can cause
 moisture buildup in the engine and
 creates wear. Start fresh in the Spring!


 Summer's heat, dust, and stop-and-go traffic can take a real toll on your vehicle.

Air Conditioning -
You probably want your a/c to blow cold
 so if it's not, you'll want this examined at
 your dealer's service department. 


Cooling System - 
Would you believe the most common
cause of summer breakdowns is overheating? The cooling system should be flushed and refilled with factory approved coolant. The coolant level and condition should be
checked at every oil change. Remember - never remove the radiator cap until
 the engine has cooled.


Oil -
The hot weather can be hard on your
 oil and engine in addition to the extra
 summer miles you'll be driving. Make
 sure you're getting your regular interval scheduled oil changes.


Brakes - 
Always be inspecting your brakes
and feel for any pulsations, grabbing,
 noises, or increased stopping distances.
If you notice anything, make sure you
 schedule an appointment for your dealer to look at.


 
Mechanical failure - an inconvenience anytime it occurs - can be deadly in winter. Preventative maintenance is a must. Here's what we recommend doing for the fall and winter.

Heater/Defroster - 
The heater and defroster must be in good working condition for passenger comfort and driver visibility. If you have any issues, now is the time to get this looked at by your dealer. Stay warm and see out of your windshield.

Battery - 
Batteries typically last 3-5 years, and winter time failures are common due to increase cold-starting electrical loads. The best way to identify a weak batter is with professional test equipment. Routine care can help make your battery last longer. 

Lights - 
Winter has less sunlight so your headlights will be on much more often. Inspect all lights and replace and burned out bulbs. 

Wiper Blades -
Cold temps are hard on rubber components and when salt comes into the mix, it deteriorates even faster. Make sure you check the wiper fluid, too! Start winter with a fresh set and feel confident that you'll be able to take on the salty slush. 


Carry emergency gear - 
Gloves, boots, blankets, flares, a small shovel, sand or kitty litter, tire chains, and a flashlight. Also keep snacks and water just in case.
