Here’s Why 2017 Ram 2500 Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Ram 2500, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your 2500. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. 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 2017 Ram 2500 maintenance schedule!

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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your 2500 perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2017 Ram 2500 problems later.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Ram 2500

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2017 Ram 2500 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 2017 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). 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. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! 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 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 support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2017 Ram 2500 running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2017 2500. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2017 Ram 2500.

Maintaining your Ram 2500 steering and suspension 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! 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. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Ram 2500's steering and suspension system.

Without routine Ram 2500 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!

  • When should I have Ram 2500 alignment checked? Watch out for pothole damage. If your 2017 2500 is pulling to one side or the other, your tires or suspension system could be calling out for help.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Ram 2500? 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 2500 engines.
  • Can Ram dashboard warning lights wait? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Ram 2500 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.
