Maintenance for Your 2020 Ram 1500

What is the maintenance schedule for the 2020 Ram 1500?

Here’s Why 2020 Ram 1500 Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Ram 1500 and it'll take care of you. 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. 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 2020 Ram 1500!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Ram themselves. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like 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, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2020 Ram 1500 problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Ram 1500 Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2020 Ram 1500 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your 1500’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 2020 Ram 1500 be ready for a new battery? 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). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your 1500 may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Ram 1500 battery, and so can frequent short drives. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! 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.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2020 Ram 1500 running newer, longer. To learn how often Ram recommends you have the oil changed in your 2020 1500, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2020 Ram 1500.

Routine upkeep for your Ram 1500 suspension and steering system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. 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. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Ram 1500's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Ram 1500 maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), 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!). We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Ram 1500’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Ram 1500? We’ve got your back. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2020 Ram 1500 maintenance and repairs.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Ram 1500? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I switch my Ram 1500 to high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Ram 1500? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  •  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.
