Service FAQs

At Hayes Chrysler Jeep® Dodge Ram of Baldwin, you'll find expert technicians ready to care for your vehicle. Whether it is routine maintenance like oil changes or tire rotations or something more serious like a repair or something more fun like installing accessories, our technicians have the skill and knowledge to make your vehicle the best it can be.

Here is a guide to the most frequently asked service questions to help you understand a little more about caring for your vehicle and the importance of regular maintenance.

Why are regular oil changes so important?

Regular oil changes, as outlined in your owner's manual or dictated by your driving habits, are essential to the health of your vehicle's engine. It's a simple process, but it offers big rewards for the longevity and protection of your vehicle's engine. Regular oil changes will ensure that your engine is clean, free from debris, and operates as effectively and efficiently as possible.

What kind of tire care does my vehicle need?

The four tires attached to your vehicle are the only components that connect your vehicle to the road or rugged trail. To make sure your journeys are protected, you need properly inflated tires that are free from damage and uneven wear and tear. Be sure to review the recommended psi for your tires and inflate accordingly. You will also need to check that each tire sports adequate tread so your tires can grip the road or rocky terrain you are traveling over. If you have any concerns about your tires, schedule a check with us; our techs will make sure your tires are the best they can be, perform rotations when necessary, and help you invest in a new set when needed.

Should I get my brakes checked?

Just like your tires, maintaining your vehicle's brake system is non-negotiable. The brakes system features several components, and our technicians will review each part to make sure your brakes deliver the stopping power your need when you need it. Are your brakes making weird noises like screeching or are they delivering lackluster stopping power? If you're concerned about their performance, don't hesitate to schedule a service appointment with us!

Why are my vehicle's fluid levels important?

There are many fluids that help your vehicle work, and it's important that the levels of every necessary fluid is at the right mark. Our technicians will address all the fluids in your vehicle from oil and transmission to brake and antifreeze and windshield wiper, so you can be sure your every component is protected and working properly.

Is my vehicle's battery in good health?

The battery in your car is what allows the engine to fire up, so it's crucial to your ability to get out on the road. Batteries, though, have a limited lifespan, and it's important to regularly monitor yours so you don't get stranded. A battery's lifespan can also be degraded by extreme temperatures and demanding drives, so season to season and after hard journeys are good reminders to check its health.

A battery can also malfunction if the connections are loose, corroded, or not installed properly. It's important to review how your battery looks and be sure that it's free of corrosion or damage. If you are unsure how long you have been driving on the same battery, bring your vehicle into our service bay where our technicians can test its strength and assess its remaining power. If your car is having trouble starting or stalls, it could be a sign that the battery is starting to fail, too. If your battery is weak, they can install a new one quickly.
