Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2013 Ram 3500 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2013 Ram 3500? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your 3500 may need a replacement battery sooner. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Ram 3500 battery. 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. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your 3500 stranded. Your Ram 3500 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 2013 Ram 3500's engine run smoother. See Ram's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2013 3500 in the chart at the top 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. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2013 Ram 3500? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Ram 3500 can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform Ram 3500 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 3500's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Ram 3500 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 3500 engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning.

Take an active role in maintaining your 2013 Ram 3500. Get answers to common Ram 3500 maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Ram 3500 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 3500 to high mileage oil? 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 3500 engines.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Ram? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Ram 3500, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
