What to Know About 2020 Ram 1500 Classic Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Ram 1500 Classic to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your 1500 Classic. But how do you know what service to get and when? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine 1500 Classic maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2020 Ram 1500 Classic!

Ram 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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your 1500 Classic's life, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2020 Ram 1500 Classic problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Ram 1500 Classic

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2020 Ram 1500 Classic for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your 1500 Classic's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 2020 Ram 1500 Classic be ready for a new battery? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and 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 Ram 1500 Classic battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your 1500 Classic stranded. Your Ram 1500 Classic could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2020 Ram 1500 Classic engine. To learn how often Ram recommends you have the oil changed in your 2020 1500 Classic, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2020 Ram 1500 Classic.
