This is just one example of a vehicle problem, but with a few pointers, you can expect great performance from your car for a long time.
Here are some general tips for automobile maintenance from Roberts Chrysler Dodge:
Make it a point to change your car’s engine oil every 3 months or 3,000 Kilometers, whichever comes first.
