2012 Ram 2500 Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune-Ups to Help Your Ram 2500 Run Better

Is it tune-up time? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, it might be time to change your ways, especially if you want your 2012 Ram 2500’s engine to last for a long time. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your 2500’s engine. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you follow the guidelines specified by Ram for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you invest in your 2500's long-term health and engine performance.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Ram 2500

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Ram 2500 engine tune-up services. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. This includes the installation of new spark plugs and a visual inspection of your engine’s components, plus a lifetime warranty on parts*. The second service focuses on your 2500's filters, specifically replacing the air filter and fuel filter. Yet another service is a fuel system cleaning process, which involves removing varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits that have built up inside the fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate in your 2500. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your 2500 can determine what kind of service it needs. This means that a tune-up service that’s a great fit for another car may not be optimal for yours. Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

Questions About 2012 Ram 2500 Engine Tune-Ups

  • Will it hurt my Ram 2500 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 2500? 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.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my 2500 engine? Hard stops and starts can lead to premature wear on your engine’s components. Lighten up that lead foot and opt for steady, fluid starts and stops instead. Your engine (and your passengers!) will thank you.
