All Star Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram’s Winter Vehicle Tips

1

Nothing says winter here in Southern Louisiana more than reaching temperatures below 60 degrees. As we are thankful for the brisk of cool air that has crossed our boarders, we seem to be unaware on how to properly care for our vehicles during this time of year. We have complied a few winter vehicle tips for you to keep your vehicle in great shape and your family safe this season!

One sever road hazard during the difficult winter months is poor vehicle lighting. Since the sun sets earlier in the day-which in turn gives us less daylight on our commute home; you need to make sure all of your vehicle’s lights are in excellent shape. If your headlights are yellow, consider replacing them as soon as possible to give you the best illumination during your commute.

As having ice on our windshields are rare, it does occur. Be sure to check your vehicle’s window defroster and the climate control system to ensure they are functioning properly. The climate control system is there to help keep you warm, and your windows from fogging up. These functions are imperative to maintaining safety during the winter season.

Putting these few tips into practice can help you maintain the life of your vehicle, and ensure your family safety. Even though our winter season is not full on snow, icy roads and foggy conditions do occur. Get a step ahead, and make sure your vehicle is in the best condition for the colder months.

Have a Game Plan For Fall Service

With fall quickly approaching, it is important to have your vehicle ready for the chilly temperatures ahead. Although it does not snow or get too terribly cold here in South Louisiana, you still need to have your car service and ready for the fall weather that will soon be upon us! All Star Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram has compiled a few tips and recommendations in order to get your vehicle in tip-top shape before the season changes!

  • Check the Lights

Walk around the outside of the car and check the operation of all lights: headlights, taillights, parking lights, brake lights and emergency flashers. Replace all broken bulbs and those that have stopped working. Make sure all lights are clean. If you own an older vehicle with sealed-beam headlamps, you might want to pony up for halogen lamps for improved visibility and safer driving for those rainy conditions!

  • Change the Oil and Air Filters

If the oil is dirty or you’re at your recommended oil change time, change the oil. Also check the air filter to ensure that it is clean enough to allow for proper operation. If you can’t see light through it when you hold it up to a 60-watt bulb, it’s time to replace the air filter!

  • Refill the Cooling System

Our technicians recommend checking the coolant level in the overflow tank when the engine is cold. If the level is too low, add a 50/50 solution of water and coolant to allow proper antifreeze capability. It may be necessary to refill the cooling system!

These are just a few things All Star Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram suggests you check before the fall season rolls around! Taking care of your vehicle and routinely getting it serviced will ensure your vehicle will last a lot longer! Make sure to schedule your service appointment, and view all of our Service Specials!

National Car Care Month

2016-04-11 National Car Care Month

April is National Care Car Month! “Why April?” you may ask yourself. In April, as winter comes to an end, it is time to get your Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep or Ram ready for spring driving and summer road trips! National Car Care Month reminds you to take care of any issues that may have occurred or been ignored during winter. Spring time is filled with sunshine, some afternoon showers and lots of pollen. Make sure your vehicle’s tires are rotated, balanced and in good condition for those wet roads. Deep potholes aren’t friendly to shocks and struts. An inspection to determine wear or leaks can alleviate bigger issues down the road. Also having your wheels properly aligned after a season of tough conditions can help keep you on the road in a safe direction. Also make sure your windshield wiper blades are being replaced every 6-12 months to avoid streaking on your windshield.

With all of that pollen in the air, your vehicle’s air filter can get clogged up pretty quickly. Make sure you are routinely checking and changing it to ensure optimal air flow is being produced. When it comes to your vehicle’s safety, the brake system is at the top of the list. Making sure your brakes are working properly before you head out on those slick roads or long summer road trips will ensure for a safe and comfortable ride! Brakes are a normal wear item for any car and eventually they’re going to need to be replaced. For routine maintenance, check your vehicle’s braking system at least once a year. A thorough inspection should include brake lining wear, brake fluid level, rotor thickness, condition of hoses and brake lines, brake and dash warning lights, as well as taking the car for a test drive to detect other potential brake system problems.
