Re: Added Value Extended Warranty 7 Years - 70k mile/115k km Pricing

I usually keep my cars for a long time and do all the work myself.

Re: Added Value Extended Warranty 7 Years - 70k mile/115k km Pricing

What is really the difference between the added care + and Maximum care?

Re: Chrysler calls for different fluids

1J4RR4GG2BC5346xx

For example, the power steering fluid used to be ATF+4.
Do I continue adding ATF+4, mix it with the new or replace the ATF+4 completely?

Re: Changing Cabin Filter

Is the original filter just plain paper or does it contain charcoal?
How about the replacements?
I see a difference in price and I wonder if the cheap is as good as the original.

I used a black Sharpie marker. The light is so intense that painting over only reduces the brightness, does not eliminate it.
