• Check Brakes
Brakes are one of the most used (and often abused) components on a car. A thin layer of the brake pad disintegrates every time the brakes are applied. Replace pads or shoes before drums or rotors become damaged. Check pads, shoes, drums, rotors, calipers, fittings, brake hardware and the parking brake to prevent problems.
• Check Tires
Check air pressure on all tires, including the spare. Improper tire pressure leads to premature wear and a decrease in fuel mileage. The entire surface of the tire, both tread and sidewall, should be inspected for uneven or irregular wear.
• Check Lights
Inspect and test all exterior lamps and lights, including turn signals and hazard lights, to ensure that they are in proper working order and alignment.
• Check Air Filter
The air filter is one of the unsung heroes of a vehicle, as it protects the engine from airborne contaminants. Replacing a dirty air filter helps ensure proper performance and longer life.
• Check Oil
Oil is the lifeblood of the engine. Engine oil level should be changed and replenished regularly.
• Check All Fluid Levels
Dirty or low fluids may affect the performance of a vehicle and can lead to breakdowns if not properly monitored and filled.
• Check Engine Belts, Hoses
and Fuel Filter
Prevent breakdowns or serious engine damage and maximize fuel economy.
• Check Battery
Look for corroded terminals and inspect for a bulging or cracked case.
• Check Shocks and Struts
They’re vital for a smooth ride and optimal handling and may affect other vehicle parts.
• Check Wiper Blades
Properly functioning wiper blades increase visibility. To alert you when it’s time for a change, Mopar all-season wiper blades feature an innovative wear indicator that gradually turns from black to green to yellow as the blades wear.
Mopar is a contraction of MOtor and PARts. While it’s Chrysler Group’s service, parts and customer-care brand, an alliance with Magneti Marelli enables Chrysler Group dealerships to service vehicles for GM, Ford, Toyota, Honda, Nissan, Hyundai and Kia.
