Here’s Why 2018 Ram 3500 Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Ram 3500 to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your 3500. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get 3500 maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 2018 Ram 3500 maintenance schedule!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Ram, your vehicle manufacturer. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your 3500's life, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 2018 Ram 3500 problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Ram 3500 Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2018 Ram 3500 for factory-recommended routine maintenance 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. 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 2018 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). There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. 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. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your 3500 stranded. Your Ram 3500 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 2018 Ram 3500's engine run smoother. To learn how often Ram recommends you have the oil changed in your 2018 3500, check out the information table at the beginning 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.
