According to Certified Care Care, the 2 most common repairs for Dodge vehicles are:
Engine – engine oil sludge is not just messy but is also the worst complaint from Dodge car owners. It is common to several of the Dodge sedan models and has been a problem since 1999. The models with the 2.7 liter V6 motor has an oil circulation system that is flawed in design. What happens is the regular oil in the motor will get hotter than it should causing the motor oil to gel. When the gel settles in the motor the oil cannot provide the cooling that is necessary for your motor. In turn the motor stores the heat which results in a friction increase and leads to excessive wear. If you pay attention to your maintenance schedule you should be able to avoid this problem. One example is to make sure and replace the crankcase ventilation breather also know as a PCV every 30,000 miles. Dodge owners should also never drive your vehicle with an overheated engine. It is also important to have your cooling system checked on a regular basis. To play it on the safe side have your oil changed every 3000 miles and use an oil with a high detergent.
Flimsy Dashboards – If you own a Dodge Ram truck chances are you have a flimsy dashboard. The dashboards used in Dodge trucks are made up of materials that cannot even go a few years without exhibiting problems. This may not be as big a deal as an oil sludge problem with your motor, but having a dashboard with sharp edges is a concern. What appears as a small crack on the drivers side can lead to cracks across the dashboard that expand from one side of the dash to the other. The best way to combat this problem is to start out with a good aftermarket dash cover before the problem starts.
To avoid costly air conditioning repair bills it is best to inspect and check you’re A/C components on a yearly basis. If you get into the habit of doing this you could avoid expensive repairs that could have been avoided. The air conditioner is a machine and there is that possibility that it could just stop working. Whether it be a small leak, years of wear and tear or a circuit board it is always good to have a good air conditioning repair service you can count on. When you are into the hot season the air conditioning companies become very busy so having a company you can trust to be there is very important.
The first approach to finding a qualified A/C repair service is to go online and search your local area. This a great way to be able to research the company, check prices and find online reviews to see if their customers were satisfied with the work performed. It is important to make notes on each company your research so when you are ready to go back and make your final decision you have the information at hand. Once you have decided on a air conditioning company you want to call and ask if they do work on the manufacture of you’re A/C unit and how soon will they be able to get to you. If this is an urgent situation then some companies that will put you at the top of the list and prioritize your repair. Make sure you give them as many details as possible on why your air conditioner is acting up so they can allow the necessary time to make the repair and hopefully not have to come back. Once your appointment is set it is always a good idea to call the day before they are coming to confirm the time and day of your appointment.
