FAQs—Plymouth Fury III
How should you react when the vehicle starts to overheat? How can you relieve the engine of too much heat?
Whatever you do, don't panic. Once you notice that the engine is getting too warm and is getting too close to overheating, give the vehicle a bit of gas. This will help get rid of some of the heat from the engine. To disperse heat, switch off the air-con and instead turn on the heater of the vehicle. If the gauge on the dashboard tells you that the engine is still running too hot, pull over to the side of the road. Kill the engine and let the motor cool down. The cooling system should be checked. There could be a coolant leak or a clogged radiator in the system.
Why is the color of my Plymouth Fury III's engine oil milky brown? What does it mean?
If the color of the engine oil has turned milky brown, this could mean that coolant has mixed into oil. There could be a leak, and this could be coming from a blown head gasket, a cracked case, or a faulty transmission cooler. You have to trace the source of the leak and find out how and why the coolant gets into the oil system. This condition should be treated seriously. Have this checked right away to fix the problem.
How can you maintain the good electrical connection of a car battery? Also, what would be the best interval for spark plug change?
Battery cables and terminals should be inspected. These should be cleaned every once in a while to prevent corrosion and contamination. This will ensure good electrical connection and a longer battery life.
As for your spark plugs, make sure not to let fouled-up spark plugs mess your vehicle ignition and cause fuel efficiency problems and poor engine performance. Check your user manual for the recommended schedule of replacement. Some have longer-lasting spark plugs that can go for as long as 100,000 miles. Normally, however, spark plugs should be replaced every 30,000 miles or every 30 months. The spark plugs should be checked as part of regular vehicle tune-up.
How often should the fuel filter of my Plymouth replaced? I don't want to replace it when it's already causing problems because it's clogged or already broken.
For reliable vehicle performance, the fuel filter should be replaced according to the recommended maintenance in the vehicle owner's manual, although a good benchmark for fuel filter replacement would be every 30,000 miles. Vehicle checkup should be done regularly to identify potential problems and to fix these issues early on.
I heard my brakes squeaking. What could this mean?
The squeaks can be caused by various reasons. If the squeals and grinding are continuous, these usually means that your brake pads and shoes are already worn out and that you need to replace them. If you ignore these noises, then the brakes may not work at its best like before. You may notice longer stopping distances. Don't let the rotors and drums get too thin or get too damaged. With too much stress on them, they may eventually break.
