At Jake Sweeney Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM we understand what it takes to be a five-star Jeep, RAM, Chrysler and Dodge dealership. It takes more than just providing great cars, but it means sharing our vast automotive knowledge with our customers as well.

A hot button issue amongst our customers is motor fluid maintenance. While gasoline, is possibly one of the most important kinds of motor fluids, they are closely followed by the motor oil, transmission fluid, and coolant. These three additional fluids can affect the long-term well-being of your vehicle and can even adversely affect gas mileage when left unchecked.

Motor oil is the lubricant of your engine and helps all of the moving pieces of your engine continue to operate smoothly. However, motor oil can also attract plenty of grime and should be swapped every 3,000 to 5,000 miles to avoid long-term damages. If you put off oil changes, you can run the risk of paying for even costlier maintenance.

Coolant is a motor fluid that is intended to lower the temperature of your engine and prevent overheating. Overheating can damage the intricate components of your vehicle, and if you’re not careful, lead to more serious damages. Fortunately, changing out your coolant every 30,000 to 50,000 miles should prevent this.

Lastly, transmission fluid is a fluid that contributes to the effective operation of your transmission. When transmission fluid levels are low, or the fluid itself is grimy, you can risk damaging your transmission, and much like delaying an oil change, delaying transmission fluid changes can cause some pretty significant and expensive damages.

Fortunately, you don’t have to take on motor fluid maintenance alone. The team of auto technicians at our Chrysler, Dodge, RAM, and Jeep service center is here to help you keep your car running smoothly. No matter what your automotive needs may be, we’ve got you covered at Jake Sweeney Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM.
