How often should I service my 1985 Dodge D150?
Take care of your Dodge D150 and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, your D150 could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. There's no need to guess when it's time to get D150 maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1985 Dodge D150!
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; 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 D150's life, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1985 Dodge D150 problems later.
Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1985 Dodge D150 and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your D150’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.
Could your 1985 Dodge D150 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 D150 may need a replacement battery sooner. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Dodge D150 battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your D150 stranded. Your Dodge D150 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.
Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1985 Dodge D150 engine. See Dodge's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1985 D150 in the chart at the top of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. 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 1985 Dodge D150.
