Maintaining Your Napleton Mid Rivers Dodge Journey

Maintaining Your Mid Rivers Dodge Journey.

Your new Mid Rivers Dodge Journey is the brand's mid-level vehicle in the Dodge CUV lineup. With power coming from either a 2.4-liter Tigershark Multi-Air four-cylinder or a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine and six-speed automatic transmission, it is a worthy addition to anyone's stable of vehicles. Your Dodge Journey's Owner's Manual details care and feeding tips on how to get the most from your new Mid Rivers Dodge.

Equally at home on the highway as it is on city streets, your Mid Rivers Dodge Journey will provide years of trouble free service.  Proper care should be taken so your Dodge Journey will be ready to go when you are. All it asks of you is that you give it the good stuff, as outlined by your Dodge Journey's Owner's Manual and your Mid Rivers service advisor.





Oil and Filters: Oils are the life blood of your Mid Rivers Dodge Journey's two engines. Both are great candidates for either traditional, "normal" motor oil or a high-performance synthetic that can stand up to extremely high heat. The Dodge Journey is equipped with an Oil Change Indicator System to alert you, based on time and distance, when it is appropriate to change the Journey's oil. If the system determines that you drive your Dodge Journey harder than most other owners, it may suggest an oil change in as soon as 4,000 miles. Your Dodge Journey Owner's Manual and your Mid Rivers Service Advisor will both be able to offer more service advice and information.

Air Filters: Fresh air, oil and fuel filters are designed to help keep your Dodge Journey breathing freely and with total efficiency. Made to sift out dirt and debris before it can get into your Dodge Journey's system, the Air Filter should be replaced approximately every 30,000 miles, or more frequently, if used in dusty, desert-like conditions. Oil filters should be changed with every oil change, naturally while your fuel filter should also get changed out at the 30,000 mile mark. Your Service Advisor can supply you with the proper filter for many more miles of trouble-free driving.

Transmission Fluid change: Manufactured as a sealed unit, there is very little to do to service you Dodge Journey's automatic transmission. Other than making sure it is at the proper fluid level, it is a "set it and forget it proposition. Exceptions would be if you are high mileage driver, or the fluid has become contaminated with water, in which case we suggest you contact your Service Advisor for an appointment. The Mid Rivers Journey Owner's Manual suggests changing the fluid and filter after 120,000 miles. Staying on this schedule guarantees miles of enjoyment behind the wheel of your Mid Rivers Dodge Journey. For more information check your Dodge Journey's Owner's Manual and your Mid Rivers Service Advisor.



Brake Pads and Brake Rotors: Brake Pads and Brake Rotors are there to make sure your Mid Rivers Dodge Journey does not go further than you want it to.  Designed with safety in mind, they are limited-life parts that eventually need replacement, even with normal usage. Depending on how aggressive your driving style may be, you may be in for new pads sooner, or you may be back later, but by all stretches, your mileage WILL vary. Ask your Mid Rivers Service Advisor to order an inspection every time you are in for an oil change. That way your Dodge Journey will be as safe and reliable as it was when it first rolled off the assembly line

Wipe Those Wipers: Dirty windshields make us crazy! But if our wipers don't do their job, all is lost! Through temperature extremes, they can become hard, brittle, noisy and streaky, leaving big water splotches all over the glass that you are trying to see through for the road ahead. Our Parts Department stocks Mopar-approved wipers and wiper fluid for a sparkling view of the road to come. A Napleton Pro Tip: If they are leaving spots, smears and streaks on the windshield, it's time to replace them. Your Mid Rivers Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep and Ram Parts Department stocks a full lineup of Mopar Wiper Blades made specifically for your Dodge Journey.

Those Other Wet Things: Your Mid Rivers Dodge Journey doesn't just run on gas and oil. There are a number of other critical fluids all doing their part to make sure you Mid Rivers Dodge runs like a top. Brake fluid, transmission fluid, power steering fluid, coolant, motor oil and even wiper fluid, all play a vital role in the operation of your car. Read your Mid Rivers Dodge Journey owner's manual to learn how, or stop by Mid Rivers Dodge Chrysler Ram and Jeep service center to say hello and have them topped off for you. Call for an appointment, today.

Spark Plugs: Falling under the category of "set it and forget it," spark plugs are essentials that every once in a while might become fouled on your Dodge Journey. But that's ok, because the Mid Rivers CDJR service department has you covered. Dodge says the spark plugs will last for more than 100,000 miles. Still, things can happen requiring a replacement set before that. Your Dodge service department agrees! Check your Journey's owner's manual for more extensive details.



Wheel Alignment: Pulling right or left is an indication that your Dodge Journey may be out of alignment. That may have you constantly steering the vehicle back into its lane could have you exhausted after a long drive. Just as people needs certain adjustments, consider an alignment of your Mid Rivers Dodge Journey as a visit to a car's chiropractor. With proper inflation and alignment, your Mid Rivers Dodge Journey will steer straight ahead while giving you the longest possible life from your tires. Your Mid Rivers CDJR service advisor can evaluate their condition and suggest a proper interval for future service. A Napleton Pro Tip: Always Rotate and Balance your tires before any all-wheel-alignment in an effort to maintain even tire wear all the way around.

Rotate Those Tires: Speaking of rotation of your Dodge Journey's tires, it is so important to remember that this is the way to prevent premature tire wear. Unusual wear up front is a suggestion they should be rotated right away. A smart idea is to schedule a rotation every time you are in for an oil change to equalize the time they spend at all four corners of your new Mid Rivers Dodge Journey. A Napleton Pro Tip: For longest life, tires should always be rotated at the same time as every oil change, and always before they are aligned.
