Where will you go when you need an OEM part for your Jeep® vehicle? Whenever you need a factory-made part for an automobile produced by one our brands, you should head right over to our Mopar® parts center serving Merrillville, IN and surrounding areas.

Just like our Jeep dealership should be your destination when you need an OEM part, you can trust us to provide all the advice you need to prolong the life of your car. To make your vehicle last, you shouldn’t ignore its transmission. Most drivers will need to have their transmission fluid changed every so often. In general, cars with a manual transmission will need to have their transmission fluid changed every 30,000 to 60,000 miles. Automobiles outfitted with an automatic transmission will likely need new transmission fluid every 60,000 to 100,000 miles if the fluid needs to be replaced at all.

While you should change your transmission fluid to keep with the recommendations in your owner’s manual, you can do more to extend the life of your transmission. For starters, you can let your vehicle warm up before you start to drive. This is particularly important when it’s cold outside.

You can also make sure your car’s cooling system is in good shape as well. Like your cooling system prevents your engine from overheating, it also keeps the transmission fluid in a gearbox cool as well. Since it’s more likely that your transmission will require a repair before your engine overheats, it’s vital to keep your cooling system in working order to avoid costly transmission repairs.

If your transmission needs the attention of a professional or your car needs another type of service, you should make an appointment to bring your automobile into our Jeep service center near Lowell, IN. We look forward to seeing you at Fieldhouse Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM soon.
