Our Dodge service center is ready to help you when you need repairs or maintenance, but how exactly do you know when your car needs a mechanic? Fortunately, your Dodge car or Jeep® SUV usually has a way of telling you something is up. Here's when you should schedule an appointment at MotorWorld Chrysler.

Engine Noises

Your engine normally makes some noise, but any especially loud or strange noises are usually an indicator of mechanical problems. If you hear any knocking noises or any other sound that's out of the ordinary, it's wise to schedule a service appointment.

Odd Smells

Any strange smells coming from your vehicle should stand out. You might notice a burnt smell, something like sulfur, or a musty odor that reminds you of a basement.

You may even notice a sweeter smell, similar to maple syrup. Any of these odors can be a sign of an underlying mechanical issue, so you need to get your car checked.

Reduced Fuel Efficiency

If you find yourself filling up at the gas station more often, there could be a problem with your vehicle that's affecting your fuel economy.

Gasoline is expensive these days, so this is definitely not something that you want to let linger. Our mechanics can find the source of your declining fuel efficiency.

Fluid Leaks

If your car keeps leaving behind small puddles of fluid, there could be a leak that needs to be dealt with. Your car needs all kinds of fluids to keep running, including oil, coolant, transmission fluid, and even windshield wiper fluid. A leak of any liquid could cause safety problems and performance issues.

If you notice an issue like this and suspect that you need service or new MOPAR parts, visit our Dodge service center in Wilkes-Barre, PA. Our mechanics will get your vehicle back into top shape.
