  • How Do I Know When My Car Needs Service? There are three ways to know if your Jeep Grand Cherokee needs service. Your check engine light will appear on your vehicle’s dashboard. You’ll hear a strange sound or notice something concerning while you drive. Or, you’ll know that it’s time for your next round of routine service (oil change, tire rotation, etc.) according to your maintenance guide.
  • How Often Should I Get My Oil Changed? Consult your owner’s manual, but the general rule of thumb is every six months or 6,000 miles for a full-synthetic oil and filter change. You can discuss the oil change interval for your Dodge Grand Caravan with a service professional at Peterson Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram.
  • How Can I Tell If I Need to Replace My Brakes? One surefire way to know that you need to replace your brake pads is if you hear a squealing, squeaking, or grinding noise when you use them. If it’s been more than five years or 50,000 miles since your last brake replacement, schedule an inspection at your Nampa service center.
  • How Often Should I Change My Air Filter? To maximize air quality inside your Chrysler 300, install a new cabin air filter once a year or every 10,000 miles. You can buy a new cabin air filter made for your car at the parts center in Nampa, ID. Filter replacements are always the quickest and easiest auto repairs.
  • How Can I Prep My Car for Winter and Summer? Winter and summer are the two most extreme seasons, and that’s why you need to prep your car. You can do so by replacing the wiper blades, changing the oil, inspecting the tires, repairing the heater or air conditioner, topping off fluids, and checking the battery and brakes.
