Maintaining Your Mid Rivers Dodge Charger

Regardless of how spicy your new Mid Rivers Dodge Charger is, whether it's an anything but entry level Charger SXT or the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat with its 707 horsepower Supercharged 6.2-liter Hemi engine, they all need proper maintenance and care. In that regard, you Mid Rivers CDJR Service Advisor can be your new best friend. Their advice, combined with instructions from your Dodge Charger Owner's Manual will offer the latest in up-to-date information on how your new Charger does what it does. Just call your advisors at Mid Rivers for an appointment.

Oil and Filters: Engineered to offer years of power and performance, your Mid Rivers Dodge Charger works well with conventional oil but works best with Mopar-approved high-grade synthetic oil. Regardless of which type you select, you can be assured that the Mid-River Dodge Service Department will have what your Charger needs. Your Dodge Charger Oil Change Indicator System will recommend the correct time to change both the oil and filter to keep you on the road for miles and miles of uninterrupted driving. Depending on how extensive your driving habits are, it can recommend it in as soon as 3,500 miles or as many as 7,500. Regardless, your Mid Rivers owner's manual doesn't recommend letting it go beyond a 12-month period between oil changes. Owners of the Hellcat 6.2-liter Hemi engine should consult their Service Advisor and Owner's Manual for service intervals. 
Wheel Alignment: Blip the throttle and your tires will be gone in a few minutes. The same if your car is out of alignment. With a Hemi under the hood, it's just too easy! (But think of the smoke and fun!) The bottom line is if your Charger is not properly aligned, it can cause all sorts of irregular tire wear, not to mention having to fight the steering wheel all the time from going left or right. A Napleton Pro Tip: Always rotate and balance your tires before settling down for an alignment. That way tire wear should equalize at all four corners of your Dodge Charger.

Gearbox Lubricants: Although modern manual and automatic gearboxes are typically sealed units they occasionally need to have the transmission fluid "refreshed." Hard Charging drivers who can't resist the urge would be wise to consider changing the transmission fluid every 90,000 miles.  Those, whose Mid River Dodge Chargers are equipped with a manual transmission, should do the deed every 50,000 miles. Your Charger's gearbox will offer miles and miles of trouble-free driving pleasure in
exchange. For more information check your Dodge Charger Owner's Manual and your Mid Rivers Dodge service advisor.

Brake Pads, Etc.: Rotors and brake pads work together to provide safe stopping power on your Mid Rivers Charger. Whether equipped with the optional high-performance Brembo brake sets, or with the still-stout standard brake kit, your Dodge Charger will come to a safe and complete halt. But they still require maintenance to prevent them from wearing out, sometimes sooner than later, depending on how aggressive your driving style may be. The service advisors at  Mid Rivers recommend an inspection at the same time you are in for an oil change. Your Mid Rivers CDJR Service Advisor will be happy to inspect them for you.

Old Sparky: Nothing old about these, but the spark plugs in your Mid Rivers Dodge Charger are typically ranged for a 100,000-mile stint before they lose their effectiveness. But if they should call it off any time before that, your Mid Rivers parts department will have all the extras you could possibly want, including spark plugs. Your Dodge service department can offer Mopar-Approved replacement plugs to be changed at around the 100,000 mile mark. Your Mid Rivers Dodge Charger Owner's Manual can offer more extensive details.

New Wipers: Windshield wipers are those items you never think about until you need them. But what if you need them and they are not up to the task at hand? That can happen if they are more than six months old. Heat, humidity, dryness, brittle cold and even snow can cause them to be incapable of doing their job. The Mid Rivers CDJR Parts Department stocks Mopar-approved replacement wipers as good as the originals. Stop by for yours today. A Napleton Pro Tip: When the wipers leave water spots, squeaks or streaks on the windshield, it's time for replacements.

Fluid Dynamics: Fluids are the life blood of your Mid Rivers Dodge Charger. Monthly checks of the fluid levels helps to guarantee you are not caught high and dry right before a long trip or a short city run. Periodic checks of the coolant, oil, transmission fluid, brake fluid, wiper fluid and tires will make sure your Dodge Charger is ready like Freddy for your next adventure. Your Mid Rivers CDJR service department will be happy to top off all fluids when necessary, even between oil changes. Call your Service Advisor for more information today.

Filtration: Whether your Charger is powered by the Pentastar V6 or a supercharged 6.2-liter, 707 horsepower Hemi engine, they all need to breathe. Mopar-Approved Air Filters are available through our Mid Rivers Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram parts department that will help provide fresh, clean air to your engine. Your Northlake Dodge Charger Owner's Manual recommends changing it every 30,000 miles or so, unless you live in particularly dusty region, which would require more frequent exchanges. Your Charger will be internally grateful. Yes, we said that.

Finally: Fresh from the New York Times best sellers list, (not really!) it's the Mid Rivers Dodge Charger Owner's Manual! We know it's thick, but please give it a glance or two because it offers so much in the way of detailed information on the safe and thorough operation of your new Dodge Vehicle. Additionally, our Mid Rivers service department is eager to provide professional service that will keep your Dodge Charger running and feeling like new.
