Maintenance for Your 2014 Ram 3500

What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 2014 Ram 3500?

Here’s Why 2014 Ram 3500 Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Ram 3500 to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your 3500. But how do you know what service to get and when? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine 3500 maintenance. Just follow your 2014 Ram 3500 maintenance schedule!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Ram themselves. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; 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 3500's life, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 2014 Ram 3500 problems.

Overview of Essential Ram 3500 Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2014 Ram 3500 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your 3500. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2014 Ram 3500? 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). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall 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. 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 3500 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2014 Ram 3500 running newer, longer. To learn how often Ram recommends you have the oil changed in your 2014 3500, check out the information table at the beginning 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. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2014 Ram 3500.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Ram 3500 can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide the appropriate Ram 3500 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 3500's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Ram 3500 services, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). 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. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Ram 3500? We can take care of that. A/C smelling musty? We’re here to fix that, too.

Take an active role in maintaining your 2014 Ram 3500. Get answers to common Ram 3500 maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Ram 3500? You know your Ram 3500 better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • 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
