Mike Riehl’s Roseville Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM knows that summer means t-shirts, BBQ’s, and road trips. But before you gas up and get driving, you need to be sure your vehicle is ready for the road.
Check Your Oil
Soaring temperatures require higher oil weight and viscosity. This is especially true if you’re driving an older model with significant mileage. Our Dodge service center experts will quickly change your oil and oil filter to ensure your car is in tip-top shape.
Check Your Battery
Many folks worry about their battery dying under the impact of cold weather. What they don’t know is that hot temperatures can take a toll on your battery, too. If your battery is more than three years old, get it tested. It may be a wise idea to get a brand new unit to keep getting stuck on the side of the road in unbearable heat.
Top Off Your Fluids
Be sure to top off all of your car’s fluids before embarking on a summer road trip. This includes oil, coolant, and radiator fluid. While you’re under the hood, top off the washer solvent too to keep your windshield nice and clean.
Change Your Air Filters
Driving around with dirty air filters can prevent fresh, clean air from getting into your engine and interior. This can take a toll on both your fuel economy and your sinuses.
