Vehicle Maintenance in London ON
Adhering to your vehicle's maintenance schedule significantly decreases the risk of mechanical failure and saves you time and money in the long run. Consult our helpful Maintenance Schedule Tool below and trust the Mopar Service Experts at Finch Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in London when it comes time for routing maintenance on your car, truck, SUV or van.
Get an Oil Change in London ON
It may be a cliche, but it’s a cliche for a good reason—your engine’s oil is its lifeblood, and failing to maintain it is just asking for trouble. Though it’s easy to overlook, a quick and easy oil change now has the ability to save you from incurring some serious costs down the road due to significant engine damage.
Your engine is made up of a lot of parts, all precisely engineered to get the best performance out of your vehicle. With these parts in near constant motion, while you’re driving at least, they can create a great deal of friction. When your engine has the proper levels of oil in it, these parts are lubricated and can do their job with ease. But when your oil levels are low, and your engine isn’t lubricated, that friction can cause some serious (and seriously expensive) damage.
The importance of engine oil doesn’t start and stop here; it plays a vital role in many other aspects of your vehicle’s performance, like drawing heat away from your engine’s combustion chamber when it starts to get really hot, or preventing carbon buildup inside the engine. Simply put, changing your oil is the easiest and most effective way to keep your vehicle running—and running well.
Power Steering Service in London ON
Power steering is one of those items that rarely comes up until it’s too late. Over time, the fluid in your power steering system picks up dirt and moisture, resulting in clogged steering components and, eventually, failure. The experts here at Finch Chrysler will flush your power steering system keep it working properly.
Wheel Alignment in London ON
How your wheels are aligned affects not only how the car handles, but also the life of your tires and suspension components. Several factors can cause the alignment to fall out of adjustment, including component wear and potholes. Hitting a curb is a sure-fire way to jar the alignment as well. When the alignment is out, a car may pull to one side or the other, or steer erratically with just a small move of the wheel, making driving extremely risky. Not only that, but even a slight misalignment can lead to uneven and premature tire wear. An annual wheel alignment from the experts at Finch Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram will keep your vehicle running smoothly.
Differential Service in London ON
The differential is the part of your vehicle that transfers input from the transmission to the wheels. Some Front-Wheel Drive vehicles incorporate this into the transmission, though some have separate units, and all Rear-Wheel Drive vehicles have a rear differential. The rear axles and differential are located in the rear end housing. Over time, the gear oil breaks down, losing viscosity and becoming less effective at lubricating the differential and wheel bearings. Additionally, the transfer case (if applicable) should be serviced at the same time as the differential.
Cabin Air Filter Replacement in London ON
When you turn on the AC, does your car smell like a junior-high gym locker? Can you still smell that dead skunk you drove by last week? Does the air coming out of your vents barely move? If so, it may be time to check the cabin air filter. You may not even have known it was there, but this filter helps prevent bad smells, dirt, and debris from entering your car as you drive. Since one side of the filter is directly exposed to the outside environment, it inevitably gets wet. As moisture builds up, mildew and mold spores can develop that stink up the inside of the car. The expert Service team at Finch Chrysler can get your Cabin Air Filter replaced in no time.
Time Belt Replacement in London ON
Not all vehicles have timing belts. Do not confuse this with the accessory drive belt, which drives the AC compressor, alternator, water pump, and all other engine accessories. The timing belt connects the crankshaft to the camshaft(s). Some engines have external belts, while others use internal belts. Regardless of how they are accessed, these are incredibly important to the function of the engine. If you have what is known as an “interference” engine, a slipping or broken timing belt can not only keep the engine from running, but destroy the internals of the engine itself if the valves and piston collide. Every manufacturer has specific maintenance schedules for the timing belt, so make sure you check your owner’s manual. If your odometer is showing 100,000 kilometres, you need to get your timing belt checked by the Mopar Service Pros at Finch Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram.
Transmission Service in London ON
Leaving your transmission fluid unchecked for 100,000 kilometres is usually a recipe for disaster, so don’t wait that long. Follow your manufacturer’s guidelines on transmission filter and fluid changes, and be sure to check the fluid level at every oil change. Burnt or dark-coloured fluid is a sign of an overheated transmission, and continued use without servicing could lead to internal damage. Our Trasmission Experts can service your vehicle to avoid damage and get it running smoothly once again.
Air-Conditioning Service in London ON
When an AC system breaks down, it is usually during blistering heat or brutal cold. The AC compressor contains oils that lubricate the seals and moving parts. Because the AC only sees action in warm weather, these oils can drain away from the places they are needed the most. Switching the AC on for 15 minutes or so once a month will keep those oils circulating so that the seals and moving parts stay functional. Additionally, with an annual car maintenance service, you can get those oils replenished and have the system checked for leaks and proper refrigerant levels by London's Service Experts at Finch Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram.
Brake Service in London ON
Brake fluid is hygroscopic, which means it can absorb water out of the air. Even though the hydraulic system is sealed, the reservoir is not, meaning it can pull water straight from the air and into the system. Over time, this corrodes the internal workings of your brakes’ hydraulic system. You can use a simple dip strip (available at your local NAPA Auto Parts store) to test your brake fluid. If the fluid is a dirty dark brown colour, it is old and should be flushed and replaced with new fluid. When it comes time for you a Brake Service in London Ontario, be sure to visit the pros at Finch Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram.
Fuel System Cleaning in London ON
Carbon, sludge, and dirt. These nasty bits of junk flow through your fuel system every single second the engine is running. As the buildup grows, less fuel is able to pass through, resulting in loss of engine power, weaker fuel economy, and reduced drivability. Restore the performance and economy of your engine with a fuel system cleaning. In most cases, a twice-yearly fuel additive will do the trick. Be sure to use quality gasoline to avoid dirty fuel. When it comes time for your Fuel System Cleaning, trust the Mopar Service Experts at Finch Chrysler.
