Your Guide to 2016 Ram 3500 Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Ram 3500, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, your 3500 could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. 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. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2016 Ram 3500!

Ram knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. 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 tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your 3500 running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2016 Ram 3500 problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Ram 3500

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2016 Ram 3500 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your 3500's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 2016 Ram 3500 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). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Ram 3500 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. 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 support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2016 Ram 3500 running newer, longer. See Ram's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2016 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 2016 Ram 3500? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Ram 3500 can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. 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, 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. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Ram 3500's steering and suspension system.

If you fall behind on routine Ram 3500 maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), 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’ve got your back. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2016 Ram 3500 maintenance.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Ram 3500? 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? If your Ram 3500 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 3500 to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
