Your Dodge van maintenance is an important part of being an owner of the powerful Dodge Van. If you take the time to schedule regular maintenance and servicing your Dodge van will last a lot longer than if you let those mileage marks go by. There are some simple things you can do to help in between regular servicing of your Dodge van.
When you go to the gas station be sure to check all fluids. This means not only checking your Dodge van oil, but also checking your brake fluid, transmission fluid, and coolant. Checking these fluids on a regular basis can give you a baseline of what your Dodge van uses in the fluid compartment. If you notice a sudden drop in any fluid in your Dodge van you know that you may have a problem and the sooner you fix it the less it will cost.
While at the fuel fill up station you'll also want to take notice of tires on your Dodge van. Notice whether you have uneven wear or under inflated tires. Uneven wear on your Dodge van tires can mean that you have a suspension or alignment problem and again the sooner you fix it the less it will cost. Under inflated tires can cost more by reducing your miles per gallon as well is causing wear on suspension bushings and tires. So be sure to notice your tires when you fuel up and recognize the future problem before it leaves you stranded on the side of the road.
Get your regular servicing and maintenance done on time and by a qualified technician. Letting oil changes, coolant changes or transmission servicing go by without its regular checkup can cost you money by not allowing your service technician to recognize a problem before it's become a major one. Old oil doesn't lubricate as well, low transmission fluid can stress out your Dodge van transmission and low braking fluid can actually be a hazard to your life for without the proper breaking fluid level your brakes may not work.
Maintaining and servicing your Dodge van can be as simple as pulling into your service station or as difficult as being stranded on the side of the route. It's your choice, service regularly all major components of your Dodge van or sooner or later you'll become a traffic hazard.
