Our Basic and Routine Services
Routine maintenance and repairs on your Chrysler vehicle can prevent costly services down the road. With regularly scheduled appointments with our certified technicians, you’ll be able to maintain the value of your vehicle to ensure a safer, more dependable ride.
Choosing the correct type of oil for your vehicle’s make and model can have all the difference to ensure your car drives at its best. Most service professionals recommend getting the oil changed every 4,800 kilometers on average, but some newer vehicles only need the service every 8,000-16,000 kilometers.
Check your owner’s manual or call our Chrysler Vehicle Service Experts to see how often your car should have its oil changed.
Brake Repair and Service
Your cars brakes are without question one of the most important safety features of your vehicle. Over the life of your cars brake system, the brake fluid can absorb air, water, and dirt, making the brakes less effective. Clean brake fluid increases stopping distance and prevents the buildup of debris in the brake lines.
Refer to your vehicle’s owner’s manual to see how often the brake fluid should be replaced for your car’s specific make and model. You can also look and see if the “check brake light” lights up on your dash, or if you notice rattling or noises when you brake, your car should be brought in to the service department immediately.
Your tires become worn and lose their tread over time, creating an unsafe grip on the road. Depending on your driving style and the roads you’re driving on will determine how slowly or quickly they lose their tread.
Maintaining a safe vehicle starts with keeping the connection between the road and your car strong. Monitor the tread on your tires regularly to ensure strong traction and better control.
Auto Mechanic Tip: Keep an eye out for slow leaks from your tires. If you continuously notice less air in a tire, it may be time to bring it in for inspection. These slow leaks can burst unexpectedly, causing a potentially dangerous situation for the driver. Proper pressure maintains the tire grip and gives you optimal performance.
Tire Replacement Tips
When you come in to replace your tires, consider these tips:
- Tire sizes vary for car models. Make sure you buy the tire size suggested by the vehicle manufacturer.
- Tires that do not match the vehicle model may have less traction on the road, lessening your control.
- If you are unsure about the tire size for your car, truck, or SUV, ask the experts at Abbotsford Chrysler. If we do not have the tires in stock, we can quickly order them and have you back on the road safely and swiftly.
Have you noticed a pull on the steering wheel to one side or a shaking sensation when driving? You may need to bring your car in for a wheel alignment.
Auto Mechanic Tip: Proper wheel alignment helps with fuel efficiency, as well, saving you money on gas.
A good way to avoid issues with the steering is to get your alignment checked with every oil change. Being proactive about the safety of your Chrysler prevents avoidable accidents down the road.
No matter when or where it happens, discovering your battery has died is a huge frustration. Every Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, and Ram vehicle comes with a manufacturer-certified battery that is made to stand the test of time. These batteries are made to provide more backup amps hours to keep your car (and all your electronic devices) going for years to come.
How Does Weather Effect Car Batteries?
Batteries typically start to face difficulty in extreme weather, especially with severe temperature zones. High heat causes the water in the battery to evaporate and destroys the battery cells. Cold temperature freezes the battery, losing most of its power.
If you notice your car seems to be having trouble starting or you have tried to start your car only to discover a dead battery, bring your Chrysler into our service department. Being proactive with your vehicle’s battery saves you from being stranded at the worst times.
Wiper Blade Replacements
In inclement weather, sturdy wiper blades keep your windshield clean, allowing you to navigate safely through the storm. Worn blades smear the water, making your journey difficult and dangerous. Checking and replacing wiper blades regularly often gets overlooked, but like oil changes, it is an easy and inexpensive way to maintain a safe vehicle. Automotive experts recommend replacing windshield wiper blades every 10,000 kilometers.
Air Filter Replacements
Air filters, an inexpensive repair that is commonly overlooked by car owners. More often than not, people forget to even look at their air filter to see if it’s time to have it replaced. But this low-cost repair has can enormous implications for your vehicle.
A clean air filter will:
- Improve your vehicle’s fuel economy
- Stops bugs and dust from reaching the engine
- Lessen the strain of the engine over time
- Reduce harmful vehicle emissions
Auto Mechanic Tip: A good rule of thumb is to have the air filters checked at every oil change.
Although the air filter is a small component of your car, replacing it gives your car a better, more efficient driving experience. Ask the service technicians at Abbotsford Chrysler to find out what type of air filters fit your car.
