It may go without saying that the best kind of maintenance is the routine kind. On the other hand when minor issues go undiagnosed, they can lead to larger issues in the future. Knowing what’s best for your car requires an expert. Here are the most frequently asked questions our dealership gets about San Diego Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram maintenance.

  • Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram Engine & Ignition System

  • Why won’t my Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram start?

    Although there are numerous reasons why your Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram won’t start, the most obvious reason may be its battery. If you managed to leave your lights on, then its likely that the charge is out. One sign of a low battery charge is if it takes a moment to start the engine when you turn the key. Of course, there may be other reasons why your car won’t start, so it’s best to consult a certified Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram mechanic.

  • Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram Fuel Filter

  • When do I replace my fuel filter?

    A clean fuel filter ensures optimal and trouble-free engine performance. Always consult your Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram mechanic or automakers’ manual, but fuel filters usually can operate between 20,000-40,000 miles.

  • Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram Brake Pad Replacement

  • How long will brake pads last?

    The life of a brake pad depends upon your daily driving routine and especially, the operating environment. Based upon severe to moderate usage, brake pads are typically designed to last through 20,000-25,000 miles. Factors that can significantly reduce its life are braking frequently, high-speed braking, elevated temperatures and driving on uneven areas or rocky terrain. On average, brake pads are designed to give from 40,000 to 60,000 miles of pad life in normal driving conditions.

  • The Check Engine Light

  • What does it mean to ‘service engine soon’?

    Computerized dashboards are standard traits in most modern vehicles. These include sensors and indicators to assist drivers in managing vehicle safety. Common reasons that your check engine light is on include low tire pressure, missing gas cap, or time for an oil change. This light also produces a computerized error code which is easily read by a diagnostic machine.

  • Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram Tire Rotation

  • When should I have the tires rotated?

    A car’s primary point of contact with the pavement are its wheels. Because of this constant pressure, periodic rotation of the tires is required to best distribute the wear and tear. A tire rotation after every 6,000 to 8,000 miles is advised. Rotation ensures that the tires wear evenly. Plus, be sure to note that 4WD and off-roading, as well as personal driving habits may influence your tire rotation frequency and interval, outside of a standard Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram tire rotation schedule.

  • Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram Oil Change – San Diego

  • How long between oil changes?

    While most auto specialists swear by the 3 month or 3,000-7,000 mile oil-change rule, this may or may not be true of your make and model. The first suggestion is to check your car’s manual. This can provide you with the most accurate answer available, especially for relatively new models. Conversely, however, the manual provides little guidance when it comes to your vehicle’s age, history, and wear. This more indepth diagnosis requires an expert. If your mechanic is unsure, then phone your Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram dealer right away for the best advice.

  • Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram Battery Replacement

  • How do I know when to change my battery?

    The typical car battery lasts between 3 to 5 years, dependent upon care and use. The best way to avoid a battery issue is monitor the battery health of your vehicle. This most often occurs during a routine service check. Most car batteries, like other perishable goods, have an expiration date clearly marked.

  • Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram Brake Change

As brake quality is assessed by size, look, and feel, this is the best way to check your brakes. Be sure to have squeaky brakes looked at, as the noise can be a symptom of a larger issue.
