In order to keep your Dodge Challenger or Jeep Cherokee in tip-top shape and avoid expensive repairs, you should regularly perform a few maintenance tasks. We are going over them down below, so keep reading to see learn more about them and how we can help you!

The Checklist:

Check On Fluid Levels: There are a number of fluids that run through your vehicle ensuring that you get from point a to point b safely. They include the power steering fluid, engine coolant, transmission fluid, and even the windshield wiper fluid. In order to check on these fluid levels, you’ll need to lift up the hood of your Jeep Renegade. Once you do that, keep in mind that some fluid systems are closed, which means if they are low, there could be a leak that needs to be remedied by our mechanics and technicians as soon as possible. These closed systems include the power steering, brake and coolant. Two fluid systems that aren’t closed and can just be topped off by you include the transmission and windshield wiper fluids.
Perform an Oil Change: There is one more fluid running through your vehicle that we have yet to mention and that is the oil, also known as the lifeblood of your engine. Ensuring that all your engine’s moving parts are cooled and properly lubricated, the oil has a pretty important job. If oil gets too old, it can start to degrade, taking on debris like dirty dust, and even metal shavings turning into sludge. That sludge then clogs the oil filter, causing less and less oil to get through and do its job. To avoid all of this and the costly engine damage it can cause, routinely change your oil at the proper intervals instructed by your service advisor.
Check the Condition of the Battery: Your battery is very important to the function of your vehicle, causing a chemical reaction to power your lights, engine, and accessories. A lot of things can cause damage to your battery, like extreme weather fluctuations, corrosion around the connections, loose connections, and even improper mounting. Make sure to check for all those things when taking a good look at your battery. You should also check how old your battery is, close to or over four years old, it is time for a new battery.
