What to Know About 2013 Ram 1500 Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Ram 1500, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, your 1500 could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine 1500 maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2013 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. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your 1500 perform better, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2013 Ram 1500 problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Ram 1500

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2013 Ram 1500 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2013 Ram 1500. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your 1500 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 Ram 1500 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 1500 stranded. Your Ram 1500 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 2013 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 2013 1500. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2013 Ram 1500.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Ram 1500 can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, perform Ram 1500 suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut 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.

If you skip recommended Ram 1500 services, 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. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Ram 1500? We’ve got your back. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re on it.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Ram 1500? You know your Ram 1500 better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When does my Ram 1500 need high mileage oil? If your Ram 1500 has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can Ram dashboard warning lights wait? 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.
