We can’t overstate the importance of oil changes in keeping your vehicle’s engine running smoothly. At Jim Burke Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM, we use MOPAR-recommended oil and filters to ensure your Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, RAM, or FIAT is as close as possible to the day it left the factory. You can schedule an oil change to line up with your calendar or just drop by our Birmingham service center.
If you’ve heard oil referred to as the “lifeblood of a car,” that’s because it keeps your engine running around Hoover and Mt Brook. Lubricating your engine, oil also helps to extend the life of your vehicle by reducing friction, countering corrosion, improving performance, and more.
Though you you need to have your oil changed, it shouldn’t burn or leak from your engine. If you think you might have an oil leak, you should bring your vehicle in to our service center immediately. We can determine the source of the leak, correct it, change out the oil, and put your vehicle’s oil system back in order.
While many drivers leave routine maintenance to the pros, there are a few things you can and should do at home to ensure your vehicle is in its best shape. One of those is checking your oil, regularly. And it’s as simple as removing the dip stick, wiping it clean, reinserting it, and then taking it back out to look at the current oil level and color. It takes a few minutes, and we’re happy to show you how you can check it at home and what to look for when you do.
We work on Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and RAM vehicles day-in and day-out. That means we can make short work of your routine oil change and put you back on the road as soon as possible. You can trust us to always use MOPAR-recommended oil for your vehicle — we can help you decide between synthetic and conventional oil, too.
Contact us today if you have questions like what oil to use in your Wrangler or how often to change the oil on your 4WD vehicle. Prefer to handle your own oil changes? We’ll point you to the MOPAR-recommended oil that’s right for your vehicle and any service coupons you can take advantage of.
