Here’s Why 2017 Ram ProMaster 1500 Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Ram ProMaster 1500, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your ProMaster 1500 has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when?

It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2017 Ram ProMaster 1500!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Ram, your vehicle manufacturer. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your ProMaster 1500 running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2017 Ram ProMaster 1500 problems later.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Ram ProMaster 1500 Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2017 Ram ProMaster 1500 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 ProMaster 1500's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2017 Ram ProMaster 1500. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your ProMaster 1500 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 ProMaster 1500 battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your ProMaster 1500 stranded. Your Ram ProMaster 1500 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

To learn how often Ram recommends you have the oil changed in your 2017 ProMaster 1500, 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 can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2017 Ram ProMaster 1500.
