What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 1986 Dodge Aries?
Take care of your Dodge Aries and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Aries. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. There's no need to guess when it's time to get Aries maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 1986 Dodge Aries maintenance schedule!
Dodge knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. 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; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Aries's life, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1986 Dodge Aries problems in the future.
Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1986 Dodge Aries and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Aries's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.
Could your 1986 Dodge Aries be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to 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. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Dodge Aries won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.
Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1986 Dodge Aries running newer, longer. See Dodge's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1986 Aries in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1986 Dodge Aries.
Maintaining your Dodge Aries steering and suspension system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, perform Dodge Aries suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your Dodge Aries's steering system require regular maintenance.
Without routine Dodge Aries maintenance, 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!). We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Dodge Aries’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Need a new Dodge Aries radiator? We got it. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 1986 Dodge Aries maintenance.
So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.
