Your Guide to 2013 Ram 2500 Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Ram 2500 to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your 2500. 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 2500 maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 2013 Ram 2500 maintenance schedule!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Ram, your vehicle manufacturer. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your 2500's life, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2013 Ram 2500 problems later.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Ram 2500 Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 2013 Ram 2500 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your 2500’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 2013 Ram 2500 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). There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Ram 2500 battery, and so can frequent short drives. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty 2500) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Ram 2500 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 2013 Ram 2500's engine run smoother. See Ram's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2013 2500 in the chart at the top 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. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2013 Ram 2500? We can help with that, too!

Maintaining your Ram 2500 steering and suspension system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide the appropriate Ram 2500 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. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Ram 2500's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Ram 2500 maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. 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 2500 engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Need a new Ram 2500 radiator? We can take care of that. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2013 Ram 2500 maintenance.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.
