Replace Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Parts Here

Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram parts replacements and upgrades are inevitable, like any vehicle. Even the highest quality auto parts have shelf lives. Prompt replacement and service are crucial to vehicle efficiency, longevity, driver safety, and overall vehicle health. With so many makes, models, and parts, which ones do you replace first, when, and how? Here are the recommendations directly from our Morlan Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram service department team.

Auto Parts Replacement 101

Regardless of make or model, some auto parts should be serviced or replaced intermittently: belts, hoses, and oil filters, for example. It's best to change belts and hoses every 36,000 to 50,000 miles and oil filters every three months.

Depending on your specific Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram model, your driving habits, weather in Cape Girardeau and the number of miles you log daily, the recommended service intervals mentioned above could be shortened to ensure optimal vehicle health.

Why Belts, Hoses & Filters?

Belts, hoses, and filters are but three of many critical auto parts that take a major beating while you drive around Carbondale, IL. Serpentine and timing belts are the two main types of belts on your vehicle. The timing belt helps the engine camshaft and pistons stay synchronized, whereas the serpentine belt helps deliver power to vehicle components.

Oil filters constantly collect particulate matter and impurities from your vehicle's engine oil. Oil lubricates, protects and cleans your engine, promoting long term engine fitness.

As oil breaks down and takes on more impurities, it becomes sludgy and dirty, clogging both your engine and the filter. Clogged, dirty engines not only break down more frequently in the here and now, but they also tend to have shorter lifespans.

When in Doubt, Go With OEM

Our Morlan Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram service department near Sikeston frequently receives questions about the brands of parts best used for replacement and upgrade. We always recommend the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts as opposed to aftermarket ones. What's the difference?

An OEM part comes from a manufacturer that designs highly sturdy, specific auto parts for a particular make and model. Aftermarket refers to a part sourced from a third party and added to your vehicle after purchase.

Mopar is the official, sole OEM for all Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram vehicles, a family of highly capable vehicles, including Fiat. Depending on your make, model, driving history and other factors, recommended service windows and parts you should replace/upgrade varies.

Chrysler Maintenance Schedule

Each vehicle in the Chrysler fleet has its own unique factory-recommended maintenance schedule. The schedule also varies between years as specific vehicles in the fleet evolve and gain new standard parts or optional parts from trim to trim.

Dodge Maintenance Schedule

Depending on a variety of factors, your Dodge might need an oil filter change as soon as 3,500 miles. You might be able to go without one for longer than 3,500, but going without one for more than 10,000 miles is inadvisable.

Typically, during a routine oil change and oil filter change appointment, our factory-trained techs may also check air filters, suspension, spark plugs and brakes.

Jeep Maintenance Schedule

Jeep builds vehicles to meet the demands of daily driving in a place like Jackson, MO as well as in off-road conditions and severe weather. As a result, Jeep boasts highly crashworthy frames and aggressive, trend-forward engineering.

Exactly for these reasons, Jeep recommends a rather rigorous service and parts schedule. At 10,000 miles, a change of the engine's oil and filter are a must. At the same visit, your Jeep may also call for a replacement of hoses, battery inspection, and tire rotations.

Ram Maintenance Schedule

Rather like Jeep, Ram builds workhorse vehicles meant to go from construction sites to campgrounds without missing a beat. Each member of the Ram fleet has its own maintenance schedule, but 10,000-mile increments seem to be the norm.
