Oil Change

Perhaps the single most important piece of routine maintenance that any Mechanicsburg driver can do for their vehicle is the oil change. Your Dodge model uses engine oil to keep fast-moving metal parts lubricated and cool to prevent overheating and premature wear. Many critical engine components are metal-on-metal, and engine oil protects these surfaces from damage that may lead to a critical failure in the future. By bringing your vehicle to our service center for an oil change every few months, you can ensure a longer engine life by removing the old filter and dirty, degenerated oil and replacing it with fresh oil and a new filter.

Wheel Alignment

It's no secret that summer rains and harsh winter conditions do a number on Newport, PA area roads. Over time, constantly driving on these roads can cause critical suspension parts to become misaligned, resulting in a vehicle that is out of alignment. What does it mean to be out of alignment? Simply put, your four wheels are not all pointed in the right direction. And while rough roads are not the only cause for such a condition, misalignment can certainly be accelerated under such conditions.

Being out of alignment can prematurely wear tires, cause stress and premature damage to wheel bearings, hubs, struts, and ball joints, and provide an uncomfortable ride and unpredictable handling characteristics. Our service center has the technology required to not only detect if your vehicle is out of alignment, but help our team accurately realign your wheels for enhanced tire life and a safer ride.

Tire Rotation

Most vehicles, even those with all-wheel and rear-wheel drive, will wear tires unevenly between the front and the rear. The reason for this is because during cornering, the front tires are scrubbing the road surface to help you change direction, while the rear tires are only responsible for following along. In front-wheel drive vehicles this is even more pronounced since the front tires handle both acceleration and cornering, but all drivetrains should be aware of their tread depth at all four corners and plan a tire rotation to maximize the overall life of each set of tires. Typically a good rule of thumb is to schedule a tire rotation on alternating oil change appointments, or every 6,000-10,000 miles.

Brake Service

The engine helps you go, the suspension and tires keep you on the road, and the third critical component, and perhaps the most important to safety, is your brakes. Allow our technicians to check your brake fluid level, brake pad life, rotor condition, and brake line health to ensure your safety whenever you need to come to a stop.

Transmission Service

Helping you get your power to the wheels is the transmission, so it's important that it stay in good working order. Each vehicle has different mileage recommendations for checking transmission fluid and other components, and our experts can help you determine yours so you can keep this important, complex piece of equipment in excellent working order.
