Here’s Why 2011 Ram 1500 Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Ram 1500 to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your 1500 has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your 1500, 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 2011 Ram 1500!

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. 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 1500's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2011 Ram 1500 problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Ram 1500 Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2011 Ram 1500 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your 1500's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 2011 Ram 1500 be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Ram 1500 battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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 1500) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Ram 1500 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 2011 Ram 1500's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2011 1500. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2011 Ram 1500? We can help with that, too!

Routine upkeep for your Ram 1500 suspension and steering system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide Ram 1500 steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Ram 1500's steering and suspension system.

Without routine Ram 1500 maintenance, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Ram 1500 cooling, heating, and climate control system. Need a new Ram 1500 radiator? We’ve got your back. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2011 Ram 1500 maintenance.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.

  •  Why are my Ram dashboard lights on? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Ram 1500 in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
