Maintaining Your Napleton Northlake Jeep Wrangler

Maintaining Your North Palm Beach  Jeep Wrangler


Your new North Palm Beach  Jeep Wrangler is the modern-day version of a legendary vehicle that has a reputation for dealing with everything thrown its way.  Available in many different versions, the Jeep Wrangler is powered by an iconic 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 which has a standing as one of the most reliable engines in the business. But that reliability only comes when it is properly maintained with the correct oils, filters and care as defined by your Jeep Wrangler Owner's Manual and your Jeep service advisor.

Jeep Wrangler Wheel Alignment: Off-roading is just one of the Jeep Wrangler's strengths. But the truth is, all that banging around can result in a Wrangler getting its alignment knocked out, resulting in



excessive tire wear and more. It could be something as simple as rolling over a large rock or small bolder, but chances are it might rattle something that is critical to achieving long life from your Jeep Wrangler and its tires. For that reason, Jeep, and your Northlake Jeep, Chrysler, Dodge and Ram dealer service advisor suggest having your Wrangler realigned every 12-15,000 miles, or sooner if you tend to enjoy your Jeep extra hard!

Jeep Wrangler Tire Rotation: This goes hand in hand with alignment on your Northlake CDJR vehicle. Rotation helps to equalize tire wear at all four corners of your Jeep Wrangler, giving each pair a chance at similar wear. Front tires get the most wear with all the stress of carrying the weight of the engine and suspension, which can be made worse by under-inflation. Do this properly, and chances are you will be on a schedule that will have you replacing a set of tires once rather than the odd replacement of a front or rear, one at a time. For best results consult with your Northlake CDJR service advisor who will rotate and align the tires of your Jeep Wrangler at the same time.

Change that Oil! Your Northlake Jeep Wrangler has the ability to take you far, far off the beaten path. Forgetting to check the oil before going could possibly leave you stranded. For that reason, you'll want to make sure its oil is fresh and performing at the top of its ability. Your Wrangler's



3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine is designed to perform best with fresh conventional or synthetic motor oil, and a new oil filter to remove dirt and impurities that may find their way into the system.  The Wrangler's Owner's Manual recommends changing the oil and filter when the Oil Change Indicator System alerts you to do so, but recommends intervals not exceed 12 months or 10,000 miles, whichever comes first.

Jeep Wrangler Transmission Fluid: Your Northlake  Jeep Wrangler has a modern manual or automatic transmission that, under normal service, should provide years of mobility without a need for additional maintenance. Of course there are exceptions to every rule, but your Northlake Jeep service advisor might recommend a transmission fluid change after a weekend jaunt through beaches, streams or other locations where the fluid may have become contaminated with a body of water that you may have encountered. Consult the owner's manual and your Napleton Service Advisor for more information.

Check Those Fluids: In the middle of a big road trip is no time to be caught shorthanded just because you didn't check your fluid levels prior to heading out. Don't leave anything else to chance. Top off all of your fluid levels before hitting the road. Your service advisor and the entire  Northlake Jeep Wrangler service department is ready to inspect them, even between oil changes. Call up for more information today.
 

Brake Pads and Rotors: The Brake pads and Rotors on your new Jeep Wrangler are here to provide safe stopping power wherever you may end up. They should be checked by your Northlake CDJR service technician during every oil change to guarantee they are still in optimal condition to provide enough stopping power and safety for every situation. Some Wrangler owners increase the size of their brakes with an increase in the size of their tires. Your Northlake Jeep Service Advisor can offer expert service advice for the best combination for your new Jeep.


Jeep Wrangler Air Filters: We get that you Jeep owners are an adventurous sort, willing to live the Jeep Lifestyle to the fullest. That could generally include off-roading, mudding, camping and such. Such lifestyles

 

would likely include driving along dusty trails, up and down hills, through river beds and even the occasional trip to the local big box store. That's why we recommend following your Jeep's Owner's Manual which says to change the air filter every 30,000 miles, unless you live or play in particularly dusty regions, which would require more frequent changes. Consult with your Napleton service department who will stock all the filters your Jeep requires. And besides, your Wrangler will thank you for it. 

Jeep Wrangler New Wipers: A dirty windshield is par for the course with a Jeep Wrangler. That's why it's always a good idea to have fresh windshield wipers for your Jeep Wrangler. Over time, the wipers will become hard and brittle and their ability to clean will become compromised and should be replaced. Northlake Jeep's Parts and Service department stocks a full lineup of Mopar Wiper Blades for just that reason. Pro tip: When the wipers leave water spots and streaks on the windshield, or conversely become squeaky and make lots of noise, it's time for replacement.
Finally: Your Napleton Jeep Owner's Manual offers detailed information on the safe and complete operation of your Jeep Wrangler. Our Napleton Northlake service advisors are at the ready to keep you and your Northlake Jeep Wrangler constantly moving and feeling like new. Call them for an appointment today.
