Just follow your 1997 Dodge B2500 maintenance schedule!
The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Dodge, your vehicle manufacturer. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your B2500's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1997 Dodge B2500 problems later.

A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1997 Dodge B2500? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Dodge B2500 battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your B2500 stranded. Your Dodge B2500 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.
In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1997 Dodge B2500 engine.
