Factory struts and spring seats (rear) should be getting a little soupy by this time, so you\'ll have a little "float" in the ride going over uneven pavement. I just pulled mine out, turned them upside down and execised the rod up and down to expel the air, and they\'re back to as-new...and old, old shock absorber trick. Save for oil and filter and air filter changes, there\'s not much to do maintenance-wise on these cars, and they\'re quite reliable. Maintenance headache: checking battery electrolyte on these...the battery\'s in the subframe rail in front of the left front wheel...not a big job, just a pain. I check mine twice a year.

After how many miles do you change spark plugs in 08 avenger?


Somewhere around 100,000.
Your owner's manual will tell you, but all cars today are easily getting 100K on their plugs.
Be advised, tune-up clinics will disagree, largely due to the fact they must sell tune-ups to stay in business.
Also, a sure way to tell is: Your spark plugs will tell you when they are ready to change.
They will start to misfire, or your engine will begin to be "sluggish". I'm getting 150K on most of my cars plugs.
Be blessed.

Reset oil change for a 2008 dodge aveneger


To reset your maintenance reminder system (even if the light hasn’t come on yet), you’ll need to turn your key to on (but don’t start!) and make sure your odometer is on TRIP A. Then key off. Press and hold the Odometer/Trip button. While holding down on the button, key the ignition to on (Don’t start the engine!) The display panel will count down from “------“ to “-“Continue pressing the button until the Trip A is displayed. After this step, you are done.

Where is the transmission or where do you put transmission fluid on the 2008 dodge avenger?


If your 2008 Avenger is set up like the Breeze, Cirrus, Stratus, or Sebring that it evolved from (and I don't see why they would change a successful platform), when you are facing the car the engine is on the left and the transmission is on the right (driver's side). The transmission dipstick should be the one between the engine and the transmission near the center of the engine compartment. When you pull the transmission dipstick, it should say something about the type of fluid required, and under what conditions to check the fluid level (usually on a level surface at normal operating temperature while in park). Add fluid if needed, and be VERY careful not to overfill as newer transmissions are very sensitive to fluid levels. Going as little as a couple of ounces over can adversely affect transmission performance and longevity. By the way, I strongly recommend changing your filter and fluid every 24,000 miles to keep from having to replace the transmission at arround 130,000 miles. The Mitsubishi transmission in my Eagle Vision (same as a Dodge Intrepid) disintegrated at around 137,000 miles and cost me $1380 to replace. Regular maintenance by the prior owner would have saved me that expense.

2008 dodge avenger spark plug location and socket size.


  • 2008+ Dodge Avenger 2.4L 4cyl.
  • Remove plastic cover on top of engine, just pull on each corner for it is friction fit.
  • Once removed you will see 4 black spark plug covers with one hex type screw holding each.
  • Remove Hex screw and place aside, pull upward to remove plug boot from plug.
  • To remove the plug, use a 5/8 socket with a 6" extension. Once plug has been turned out all the way and you cannot get the plug up and out of the hole, just press the plug boot back on the plug and pull it back up.
  • Gap and replace 4 plugs with the same or equavalent type,. Drop plug down the hole and use socket to align and tighten until just snug, then torque to manufactures specifications.

What maintenance to get at 50000


Change air filter, plugs and wires, and if you wanted you could change to sythetic oil, sythetic is smoother therefore easier on your engine. once you switch you cannot to back or mix the oils.
