Scheduled Maintenance for Your 2016 Ram 1500

What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 2016 Ram 1500?

Here’s Why 2016 Ram 1500 Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Ram 1500, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your 1500. 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 maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2016 Ram 1500!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Ram, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your 1500 perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 2016 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 2016 Ram 1500 and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your 1500. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Could your 2016 Ram 1500 be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall 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 be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2016 Ram 1500 running newer, longer. To learn how often Ram recommends you have the oil changed in your 2016 1500, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. 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. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2016 Ram 1500? We can help with that, too!

Maintaining your Ram 1500 steering and suspension system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!).

Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide Ram 1500 steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement.

If you skip recommended Ram 1500 services, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Ram 1500? Watch out for pothole damage. If your 2016 1500 is pulling to one side or the other, your tires or suspension system could be calling out for help.
  • When should I switch my Ram 1500 to high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Ram 1500 engines.
  • 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.
