EMISSION CONTROL SYSTEM MAINTENANCE
The "Scheduled" maintenance services, listed in bold type on the following pages must be done at the times or mileages specified to assure the continued proper functioning of the emission control system. These, and all other maintenance services included in this manual, should be done to provide best vehicle performance and reliability. More frequent maintenance may be needed for vehicles in severe operating conditions such as dusty areas and very short trip driving.

Inspection and service also should be done any time a malfunction is suspected.

NOTE: Maintenance, replacement, or repair of the emission control devices and systems on your vehicle may be performed by any automotive repaid establishment or individual using any automotive part which has been certified pursuant to U.S. EPA or, in the State of California, California Air Resources Board regulations.

EMISSIONS TESTING
In some locations, it may be or will become a legal requirement to ensure that all emissions components and systems are functioning properly as a part of the test procedure. The test centre accomplishes this by checking the On Board Diagnostic System (OBD) system with an electronic scan tool. If your vehicle has recently been serviced, the OBD system may have been reset to a "not ready" condition because the OBD system has not had sufficient time since the servicing to reconfirm that emissions components are operating properly. In most cases, a reasonable mix and amount of normal city and highway driving and at least one overnight-off period will be required to prepare your vehicle for this check; however your DaimlerChrysler Motors Corporation dealer has the equipment and procedures required to make certain that the OBD system of your vehicle is ready for the required testing.

DEALER SERVICE
Your dealer has the qualified service personnel, special tools and equipment to perform all service operations in an expert manner. Service manuals are available which include detailed service information for your vehicle. Refer to these manuals before attempting any procedure yourself.

NOTE: Intentional tampering with emissions control systems can result in civil penalties being assessed against you.

WARNING! You can be badly injured working on or around a motor vehicle. Do only that service work for which you have the knowledge and the proper equipment. If you have and doubt about your ability to perform a service job, take your vehicle to a competent mechanic.

MAINTENANCE SCHEDULES
There are two maintenance schedules that show proper service for your Vehicle.

First is Schedule "A". It lists all the scheduled maintenance to be performed under "normal" operating conditions.

Second is schedule "B". It is a schedule for vehicles that are operated under the following conditions:

        - Frequent short trip driving less than 5 miles (8km)

        - Frequent driving in dusty conditions

        - Trailer Towing

        - Extensive Idling

        - More than 50% of your driving is at sustained high speed during hot weather, above 90F (32C)

Use the schedule that best describes your driving conditions.

Where time and mileage are listed, follow the interval that occurs first.


At each stop for gasoline:
        - Check engine oil level, add as required.
        - Check windshield washer solvent and add if required.
        - Clean windshield and wiper blades as required.


Once A Month:
        - Check tire pressure and look for unusual wear or damage.
        - Inspect batter and clean and tighten terminals as required.
        - Check fluid levels of coolant reservoir, power steering and transmission and add as needed.
        - Check all lights and all other electrical items for correct operation.
        - Inspect and clean wiper blades. Replace if required.


At Each Oil Change:
        - Inspect exhaust system.
        - Inspect brake hoses.
        - Rotate the tires at each oil change interval shown on Schedule "A" (7,500 miles) or every other interval show on Schedule "B" (6,000 miles).
        - Check engine coolant level, hoses, and clamps.
        - If your mileage is less than 7,500 miles (12,000 km) yearly, replace the engine oil filter at each oil change.
