How often should I service my 1996 Dodge B3500?
Take care of your Dodge B3500 and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, your B3500 could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your B3500, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1996 Dodge B3500!
Dodge knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your B3500's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1996 Dodge B3500 problems in the future.
Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1996 Dodge B3500 and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your B3500’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.
Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1996 Dodge B3500? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your B3500 may need a replacement battery sooner. 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 B3500 battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty B3500) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Dodge B3500 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.
Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 1996 Dodge B3500's engine run smoother.

Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1996 Dodge B3500.
