General Maintenance Schedule

The key to keeping your vehicle running as long as possible is staying up to date with the general maintenance schedule found in your owner's manual. After a certain amount of miles, your car will go through a certain amount of wear and tear.  But a routine maintenance checkup can clear up any problems, and make sure that your new car in Wayne County, Webster, or Sodus is running the way it should.

Many drivers tend to forget or ignore their general maintenance schedules and end up having to deal with much more costly repairs. When it may seem that there isn't anything wrong with your vehicle, a survey by the Car Care Council found:

  • 22% of cars have dirty or low engine oil
  • 20% have low or contaminated brake fluid
  • 17% have dirty air filters
  • 16% have inadequate cooling protection or low cooling levels
  • 15% have inadequate or contaminated power steering fluid
  • 12% need new belts

These hidden problems are dangerous, but can easily be uncovered when you bring your vehicle into the service center at Peake CJDR. To help you stay on top of your maintenance schedule and identify vehicle issues so they can be fixed, Peake CJDR has created a general service interval schedule for drivers of Webster, Sodus, and Wayne County. Most of the services described below can be accomplished quickly for little cost.

Check your Dashboard Lights Frequently

Your dashboard lights are signs that you need to pay attention to if you're looking to keep your car running optimally for a long time to come. Your dashboard lights will let you know when it's time to get certain components of your car checked, such as:

  • Lights
  • Tire Inflation and Condition
  • Windshield Washer Fluid
  • Engine Oil Level

What needs to be checked every 3,000 miles?

Drivers will usually hit 3,000 miles in a new car in three months, meaning it's time to check your:

  • Automatic Transmission Fluid
  • Battery and Cables
  • Belts
  • Engine Air Filter and Oil
  • Exhaust
  • Hoses
  • Lights
  • Power Steering Fluid
  • Tire Inflation and Conditions
  • Windshield Washer Fluid

Every 6,000 Miles?

In addition to your 3,000 mile checkup, a 6,000 mile checkup looks at your

  • Chassis Lubrication
  • Wiper Blades

Every 9,000 Miles?

When you reach 9,000 miles in your Dodge, Jeep, RAM or Chrysler in Sodus, Wayne County or Webster, you should go through all of the necessary checkups that you would at 3,000 miles.

Every 12,000 Miles?

In addition to the previous three interval checkups, your 12,000 mile inspection takes a look at your:

  • Cabin Air Filter
  • Coolant (Antifreeze)
  • Steering and Suspension
  • Wheel Alignment

These service intervals are necessary to keep up for the sake of your car's health, and thanks to this general service schedule, you now know what integral aspects of your car need to be checked every 3,000 miles.

If you're looking for general maintenance for your car in Sodus, Wayne County, or Webster, schedule your next service appointment with the Peake CJDR service center.
