    Default Chrysler 200 Maintenance Guide

    Hey guys I'm back with another informative thread. This is a vehicle maintenance guide from Chrysler & should help answer question you may have about your 200!

    The thread is split into 5 sections:

    - Maintaining Your Vehicle
    - Fluids And Capacities
    - Maintenance Schedules
    - Fuses
    - Exterior Bulbs

    Each section has it's own post.

    Maintaining Your Vehicle

    OPENING THE HOOD



    - Pull the release lever located below the instrument panel and in front of the driver’s door.
    - Raise the hood and locate the safety latch, in the middle of the hood opening.
    - Move the safety latch while lifting the hood at the same time.
    - Insert the support rod into the slot on the hood.
    - To close the hood, remove the support rod and place it in the retaining clip, then lower the hood slowly.

    WARNING:
    Be sure the hood is fully latched before driving your vehicle. If the hood is not fully latched, it could open when the vehicle is in motion and block your vision. Failure to follow this warning could result in serious injury or death.

    Tire Pressures
    - Check the inflation pressure of each tire, including the spare tire, at least monthly and inflate to the recommended pressure for your vehicle.

    - The tire pressures recommended for your vehicle are found on the “Tire and Loading Information” label located on the driver’s side door opening.

    Note:
    Refer to the Owner's Manual on the DVD for more information regarding tire warnings and instructions.

    WARNING!
    Overloading of your tires is dangerous. Overloading can cause tire failure, affect vehicle handling, and increase your stopping distance. Use tires of the recommended load capacity for your vehicle. Never overload them.

    Improperly inflated tires are dangerous and can cause collisions. Under-inflation is the leading cause of tire failure and may result in severe cracking, component separation, or “blow out”. Over-inflation reduces a tire’s ability to cushion shock. Objects on the road and chuck holes can cause damage that results in tire failure. Unequal tire pressures can cause steering problems. You could lose control of your vehicle. Over-inflated or under-inflated tires can affect vehicle handling and can fail suddenly, resulting in loss of vehicle control.


    Wheel And Wheel Trim Care
    - All wheels and wheel trim, especially aluminum and chrome plated wheels, should be cleaned regularly with a mild soap and water to prevent corrosion.

    - To remove heavy soil and/or excessive brake dust, use MOPAR® Wheel Cleaner or equivalent or select a non-abrasive, non-acidic cleaner.

    CAUTION
    Do not use scouring pads, steel wool, a bristle brush, or metal polishes. Do not use oven cleaner. These products may damage the wheel's protective finish. Avoid automatic car washes that use acidic solutions or harsh brushes that may damage the wheel's protective finish. Only MOPAR® Wheel Cleaner or equivalent is recommended.


    “Change Oil” Message Reset Procedure
    Perform the following to reset the oil change indicator system (after performing the scheduled maintenance):

    1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON/RUN position (do not start engine).

    2. Fully depress the accelerator pedal three times within 10 seconds.

    3. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF/LOCK position.

    Note:
    If the indicator message illuminates when you start the vehicle, the oil change indicator system did not reset. If necessary, repeat this procedure.

    Fuses

    General Information



    The Integrated Power Module (fuses) is located in the engine compartment near the air cleaner assembly. This center contains cartridge fuses and mini fuses.

    CAUTION
    When installing the totally integrated power module cover, it is important to ensure the cover is properly positioned and fully latched. Failure to do so may allow water to get into the totally integrated power module and possibly result in a electrical system failure.

    When replacing a blown fuse, it is important to use only a fuse having the correct amperage rating. The use of a fuse with a rating other than indicated may result in a dangerous electrical system overload. If a properly rated fuse continues to blow, it indicates a problem in the circuit that must be corrected.

    Just saw this thread. In this guide it says to change the oil every 8,000 miles. Is this ON TOP of the "standard" 3,000 oil change time. Or is this saying that we ONLY need to change it about every 8,000 miles or as needed? Thanks for the clarification.

    Only every 8K miles is required.
    The owner's manual maintenance schedule has no reference to a "standard" 3K mile interval.

    So the dealer putting the sticker in my car telling me I should come in at 3,000 miles was just because they felt like it? I understand that the owner's manual doesn't reference the "standard."
