Here at Sansone Chrysler Jeep® Dodge RAM, we believe that no driver should handle maintenance on their own. Whether you’re behind the wheel of a new Dodge car or have been driving the same Jeep SUV for years, our service team is here for you to ensure you continue driving safely, efficiently, and optimally.

Of all the seasons to be concerned about car maintenance, summer is possibly the most important. With summer comes heat, which can put quite a lot of strain on your vehicle. While engines typically run hot, they have a limit to the amount of high-temperature they can withstand.

Fortunately, your vehicle’s cooling system counteracts this rising heat. However, it too has a breaking point. So, we recommend that drivers do the proper maintenance in order to ensure all components are operating at peak capacity.

For example, replacing your air filters before summer can ensure that your engine continues to get clean cool air, which can allow it to better regulate engine temperature. We also recommend that drivers keep a careful eye on their engine coolant levels. If your coolant is running low we also suggest that you only add more once your engine is completely cooled as the remaining coolant can become pressurized and can risk severely burning you. Lastly, we urge drivers to have their air conditioning inspected before the summer season sets in full. Summers in and around Avenel, NJ can get pretty sweltering, and having a working AC can do wonders for your drive.

No matter what the time of year may be, our Chrysler, Jeep, RAM and Dodge service team is here for your every maintenance need. At Sansone Chrysler Jeep Dodge RAM we strive to be your one-stop-automotive-shop and work tirelessly to ensure your car continues running smoothly all year long.
