What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 1983 Dodge Aries?

Your Guide to 1983 Dodge Aries Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Dodge Aries to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, your Aries could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. But how do you know what service to get and when? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Aries maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1983 Dodge Aries!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Dodge themselves. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Aries running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1983 Dodge Aries problems later.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1983 Dodge Aries. If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Aries may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Dodge Aries battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Aries) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Dodge Aries won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1983 Dodge Aries engine. To learn how often Dodge recommends you have the oil changed in your 1983 Aries, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1983 Dodge Aries? We can help with that, too!

This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Components within your Dodge Aries's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Dodge Aries services, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Dodge Aries engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning.
