Brakes, Rotors and Pads: Brakes are critical to the safety of the people and product inside your Mid Rivers Ram ProMaster Commercial truck. As such, they should be inspected monthly and during a routine oil change, whichever comes first. At the same time, your service tech can check the parking brake function to make sure it operates as designed. A Napleton Pro Tip: Aggressive driving wears your pads down faster than normal. Spreading the distance between vehicles ahead of you will allow more time and distance to gently slow your Ram Commercial Chassis Cab to avoid any contact. This in turn extends the overall brake life. As always, your mileage may vary. Contact you Service Advisor for an appointment today.



Oil and Filters: Nothing makes a vehicle feel as good as new motor oil and a new oil filter. Critical to helping keep your Mid Rivers Ram ProMaster Commercial Chassis Cab on the road each day, isn't it worth the investment of using the highest grade of conventional or synthetic motor oil available? But just when is it time to do such? Your ProMaster Chassis cab is equipped with an Automatic Oil Change Indicator System that alerts you at the appropriate time with the phrase "Oil Change Required." So there is no longer the need to rely on the tiny windshield sticker with the smeared ink on it. According to your Ram ProMaster owner's manual, the ProMaster Commercial Chassis Cab's 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 can now run 10,000 miles or 12 months, between oil changes, whichever comes first. Your Mid Rivers Ram Commercial, Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep service advisors will be happy to provide you with more information.


Other Wet Stuff: Wet as in fluids. Many other fluids are in play to help operate your Ram Commercial truck. They include Brake Fluid, Power Steering Fluid, Transmission Fluid, Wiper Fluid, Coolant, and others. Working together to keep your Mid Rivers Ram ProMaster Chassis Cab operating as intended, your Ram Owner's Manual can help to organize a replacement schedule as needed. But to truly keep your Ram ProMaster operating at peak performance levels, stop by your Ram Commercial Service Department where your local Mid Rivers Service technicians will be able to assist you with all of your ProMaster needs.


Transmission Care:  The six-speed automatic transmission inside your Ram ProMaster Commercial Chassis Cab is a sealed unit whose transmission fluid and filter should be changed once every 60,000 miles. If your ProMaster Commercial Chassis Cab is used in high heat, or potentially hostile environments, it should be changed more frequently. Your owner's manual suggests you inspect the A/T fluid level approximately once a month to insure it's always at the proper level. That same manual is also the perfect source for more information on the care and feeding of your vehicle. If you prefer to talk with a real person rather than read a book, your Mid Rivers Ram Commercial Service Advisor is always available for further consultation.

Spark Plugs and Batteries: If your Ram ProMaster is gasoline powered, its spark plugs should last approximately 100,000-miles before needing a change. If you are dieel-equipped, all you have to say to yourself is "what spark plugs?" and quietly gloat because your engine doesn't use them. With spark plug changes typically not required, you won't need to worry about them for quite a while. The batteries in your Ram Commercial truck will probably need changing once every three or four years due to high heat and humidity that can sap the energy right out of them. Your Mid Rivers Ram Commercial Service Department can offer Mopar-Approved replacement spark plugs and batteries if needed. Consult your Ram ProMaster Commercial Cargo Van's Owner's Manual or your Ram Commercial Service Advisor for more details.

Filtration: Your new Ram ProMaster Commercial Chassis Cab is a highly capable box truck that can get you from shop location to job to home and back. That's why it needs to breathe freely through the best Mopar-approved Air Filters available. These filters are designed to remove debris, dust and dirt before they have a chance to enter your engine. Failure to replace a dirty filter can result in loss of mileage, and efficiency. Your Mid Rivers Service advisor can set you up with the proper Mopar-Approved air filter for your ProMaster Chassis Cab truck. Filters are currently effective for approximately 30,000 miles, but should be changed more frequently in sandy or dusty climates. Your ProMaster Service Department will stock the correct filter for all your Ram ProMaster Commercial Chassis Cab needs.

Windshield Wipers: Doesn't everyone like driving through a fog? Neither do we. But without properly functioning windshield wipers, that's essentially what you are doing. Fresh wipers eventually become brittle, dry, cracking or blotchy or worse over time as a result of their exposure to the elements. You may as well be just be stuck on the side of the road. Smearing, blotchiness, or not even moving the water off the windshield are just a few clues that your wipers have likely outlived their useful lives. We recommend changing them every six months for best results. Your Ram Commercial service department stocks the proper windshield wiper set for your Ram ProMaster Commercial Chassis Cab.

All-Wheel-Alignment: It's annoying to get behind the wheel and then constantly have to fight to steer your vehicle in the proper lane when it might be steering you to the left or the right. The likely cause is your Ram ProMaster chassis cab being out of alignment. Proper alignment is just one way to get long life from your tires. Caused by bumps, curbs and potholes, it's almost inevitable that you will need an alignment every now and then. Your Mid Rivers Ram ProMaster Service Department can get you straight again in no time. Taking care of vehicle alignment as soon as possible goes a long way toward preventing premature tire wear. Properly aligned, your Mid Rivers Ram ProMaster Commercial Chassis Cab should get equal tire wear at all four corners. A Napleton Pro Tip: Always rotate and balance your tires before having the vehicle realigned. Follow the rotation diagrams as shown in your ProMaster Owner's Manual and consult with your Mid Rivers Ram Commercial Service Advisor for more information.

Once a month: Mid Rivers service department recommends a periodic monthly check to monitor the conditions of your Ram Commercial Chassis Cab truck. The ProMaster Owner's Manual suggests an inspection for excessive tire wear, tire pressures, engine oil and coolant levels. A quick inspection of the washer fluid level and brake master cylinder fluid levels, as well as all interior and exterior lights, will insure you are ready for a big road trip, or just a regular day of work.
