Tune-Ups to Help Your Ram 1500 Run Better

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up?

Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your 1500’s engine. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Ram, you invest in your 1500's long-term health and engine performance.

Ram 1500 Engine Tune-Up Services

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Ram 1500 engine tune-up services. One option is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. It includes a complete visual inspection of engine components, installation of new spark plugs, and a lifetime warranty on parts*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your 1500. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. The third tune-up option is a fuel system cleaning service, which is a three-step process that removes varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits on your 1500's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Keep in mind that your 1500's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. If you’re not sure what services are the best fit for your car, let us help!

2016 Ram 1500 Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • Will it hurt my Ram 1500 to drive with old spark plugs? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Spark plugs are small but mighty. The spark of electricity that the plug emits across a small gap creates the ignition for the combustion needed to start your car. Without that spark, your car won't start.
  • What do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Ram 1500? Puddles could indicate that your vehicle is leaking coolant, oil, or brake fluid. Ignoring these leaks can lead to permanent engine damage, so address these symptoms ASAP with a tune-up service.
  • Are hard starts and stops bad for my Ram 1500 engine? Hard starts and stops put extra wear and tear on engine components. Smooth, gradual starts and stops, on the other hand, are a great way to help your engine run better. They can also help maximize your fuel economy.
