2017 Ram 3500 Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune-Ups to Help Your Ram 3500 Run Better

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you're the type of driver who waits for something to go wrong with your vehicle, it could be time for a new way of doing things, especially if you want your 2017 Ram 3500’s engine to last for a long time. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your 3500. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). When you follow the guidelines specified by Ram for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you invest in your 3500's long-term health and engine performance.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Ram 3500

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Ram 3500 engine tune-up services. One option is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. This includes the installation of new spark plugs and a visual inspection of your engine’s components, plus a lifetime warranty on parts*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your 3500. Our third service is a thorough cleaning of the fuel system. During this type of tune-up, we use a three-step process to get rid of harmful varnish, dirt, and carbon deposit buildup in your 3500’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Keep in mind that your 3500's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. If you’re not sure what services are the best fit for your car, let us help! Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

Where Should I Go for My Ram 3500 Tune-Up?

2017 Ram 3500 Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • What happens if my Ram 3500 spark plugs fail? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Spark plugs are small but mighty. The spark of electricity that the plug emits across a small gap creates the ignition for the combustion needed to start your car. Without that spark, your car won't start.
  • What do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Ram 3500? Puddles could indicate that your vehicle is leaking coolant, oil, or brake fluid. Ignoring these leaks can lead to permanent engine damage, so address these symptoms ASAP with a tune-up service.
  • Are hard starts and stops bad for my Ram 3500 engine? Hard stops and starts can lead to premature wear on your engine’s components. Lighten up that lead foot and opt for steady, fluid starts and stops instead. Your engine (and your passengers!) will thank you.
