Overview of Essential Dodge Intrepid Maintenance Needs

Bring your 1998 Dodge Intrepid to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Intrepid. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1998 Dodge Intrepid. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Intrepid may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Dodge Intrepid 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 Intrepid stranded. Your Dodge Intrepid won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 1998 Dodge Intrepid's engine run smoother. To learn how often Dodge recommends you have the oil changed in your 1998 Intrepid, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. 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 1998 Dodge Intrepid? We can help with that, too!

Maintaining your Dodge Intrepid steering and suspension system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform Dodge Intrepid suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Dodge Intrepid's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Dodge Intrepid maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), 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 Intrepid cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Dodge Intrepid? We got it. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re here to fix that, too.

Take an active role in maintaining your 1998 Dodge Intrepid. Get answers to common Dodge Intrepid maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Dodge Intrepid? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When does my Dodge Intrepid need high mileage oil? If your Dodge Intrepid has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can Dodge dashboard warning lights wait? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Dodge Intrepid, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
