What to Know About 1987 Dodge Aries Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Dodge Aries and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, 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. Just follow your 1987 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. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; 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. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Aries's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 1987 Dodge Aries problems.

Overview of Essential Dodge Aries Maintenance Needs

Bring your 1987 Dodge Aries to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Aries’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1987 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). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Dodge Aries battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Aries) stuck in the middle of nowhere. 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 prevent premature wear on your 1987 Dodge Aries engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1987 Aries. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1987 Dodge Aries? We can help with that, too!

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. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide Dodge Aries steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Dodge Aries's steering and suspension system.

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!). Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Dodge Aries cooling, heating, and climate control system. Need a new Dodge Aries radiator? We got it. A/C smelling musty? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 1987 Dodge Aries maintenance and repairs.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.

Take an active role in maintaining your 1987 Dodge Aries. Get answers to common Dodge Aries maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Dodge Aries? You know your Dodge Aries better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Dodge Aries? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Dodge Aries engines.
  •  Why are my Dodge dashboard lights on? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Dodge Aries to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
