What to Know About 2016 Ram 2500 Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Ram 2500 and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, your 2500 could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine 2500 maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2016 Ram 2500!

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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your 2500 running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2016 Ram 2500 problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Ram 2500 Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2016 Ram 2500 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your 2500's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2016 Ram 2500. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your 2500 may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Ram 2500 battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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 2500 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2016 Ram 2500 running newer, longer. To learn how often Ram recommends you have the oil changed in your 2016 2500, check out the information table at the beginning 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 2016 Ram 2500.

Routine upkeep for your Ram 2500 suspension and steering 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, perform Ram 2500 suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Ram 2500's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Ram 2500 services, 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 2500 engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is your Ram 2500 radiator in need of replacement? We can take care of that. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re here to fix that, too.

2016 Ram 2500 Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 2016 Ram 2500. Get answers to common Ram 2500 maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Ram 2500 alignment checked? 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 2500 to high mileage oil? If your Ram 2500 has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can Ram dashboard warning lights wait? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Ram 2500 to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
