Performance Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram of Lincoln helps cars from 1983 and later stay calibrated for streamlined driving with oil and filter changes and full inspections. During the 30- to 60-minute service, factory-trained technicians feed crankcases up to 7 quarts of fresh-squeezed oil, which ensures that pistons continue pumping without engine-damaging metal-on-metal friction, and they also pop in a fresh filter to block contaminants.

They also provide vehicle alignments, brake work, tune-ups, and steering maintenance.
