Here’s Why 2019 Ram 1500 Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Ram 1500 to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your 1500. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. There's no need to guess when it's time to get 1500 maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2019 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. 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 2019 Ram 1500 problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Ram 1500

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2019 Ram 1500 for factory-recommended routine maintenance 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2019 Ram 1500? 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). 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. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Ram 1500 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 support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2019 Ram 1500 running newer, longer. See Ram's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2019 1500 in the chart at the top of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. 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 2019 Ram 1500.

Routine upkeep for your Ram 1500 suspension and steering system 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! You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide the appropriate Ram 1500 steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. 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 could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Ram 1500 engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning.

2019 Ram 1500 Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 2019 Ram 1500. Get answers to common Ram 1500 maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting 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? 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.
