Seasonal Maintenance

Seasonal Maintenance

As the seasons change, it's essential to consider the impact of varying weather conditions on your vehicle. At Schumacher Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram (CDJR), we recognize the significance of seasonal maintenance in ensuring the longevity and optimal performance of your vehicle throughout the year. That’s why our experts put together this seasonal maintenance recommendation for drivers near Delray Beach, Deerfield Beach, and Boca Raton, FL.

Time for Some Post-Winter Clean-Up in the Spring

After enduring the harsh winter months, your vehicle requires some extra attention to prepare for the warmer season. Begin by swapping out your winter tires for all-season ones and consider rotating them to maximize their lifespan. Cold temperatures are hard on rubber components, so inspect and replace wiper blades as needed. Don't forget to check the wiper fluid to ensure clear visibility during spring showers.

One critical aspect often overlooked is the examination of brakes. Listen for unusual sounds, such as grinding, chatter, or squeals. Even if everything seems fine, it's advisable to have a Mopar-certified technician assess the wear on brake pads or drums. Additionally, top off all fluids, as winter driving conditions can lead to increased engine workload and potential moisture buildup.

Summer Maintenance

As summer approaches, ensure your air conditioning system is functioning correctly, especially if you're planning long drives in the heat. The cooling system should be flushed and refilled with factory-approved coolant to prevent overheating, a common cause of breakdowns during the summer.

Regular oil changes are also crucial, given the extra strain the hot weather puts on your engine. Additionally, keep a close eye on your brakes. Inspect them for pulsations, grabbing, unusual noises, or increased stopping distances, and schedule an appointment with our service center if you notice any issues.

Prepare Your Vehicle for Fall and Winter

As the colder months approach, certain components of your vehicle require special attention. Ensure that your heater and defroster are in good working condition for passenger comfort and driver visibility. Batteries typically last 3-5 years, and winter can be harsh on them due to increased cold-starting electrical loads. Regularly testing your battery can identify any weaknesses, preventing potential winter failures.

Winter means less sunlight, so inspect all lights, including headlights, and replace any burned-out bulbs. You should also replace your wiper blades and replenish your wiper fluid.
