Many parts make up your vehicle’s engine and while each part is built to last, normal wear and tear will occur over time. To help spot any potential problems we recommend scheduling regular Chrysler service. Sticking to a regular maintenance schedule is one of the best things you can do to extend the life of your vehicle. 

Problems with your engine usually arise due to engine wear. At Billy Craft Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM, we usually see engine wear occur in four primary ways: 

Fatigue Wear: This type of wear is common on rolling elements such as bearings and is usually a result of regular stress. It happens when a lubricated surface is fractured. 

Abrasive Wear: When contaminates, such as dirt or soot, make their way into your engine through the air intake and cause damage to the engine’s metal components. 

Adhesive Wear: This type of wear can result in engine failure or seizure. It happens when metal-to-metal contact causes surface imperfections. 

Corrosive Wear: We see this type of wear when a vehicle is used infrequently. It occurs when a chemical component attacks a metal surface in your engine.
