Drivers in the Freehold, Manalapan and Marlboro Township area know that one of the most effective ways to keep their Ram 1500 performing at its best is by keeping up with the regularly scheduled maintenance. All vehicles go through wear and tear and, to stay on top of these repairs, it's strongly recommended to follow your vehicle's maintenance schedule. To help you along in keeping your vehicle performing well, here's your Ram 1500 maintenance schedule.

Understand Your Maintenance Schedule

The best way to explain your Ram 1500 maintenance schedule is to break it down by mileage. Each service interval will correspond with a factory recommended mileage that indicates the services and inspections you need in order for your vehicle to perform efficiently. Time is tricky because every driver is different, so mileage is the best way to measure your vehicle's necessary maintenance. Be sure to repeat the services every time you add that specific mileage to your Ram 1500.

Ram 1500 Service Intervals

  • 8,000 Miles- During this service interval, the primary focus is changing out your oil and oil filter. During this time, you should also rotate your tires to even out the tread wear.
  • 20,000 Miles- At this mileage, you'll want to have your front suspension, tie rod ends and brake linings inspected and possibly replaced if they don't meet the technician's standards.
  • 30,000 Miles- When you hit this mileage, you'll want to have your CV/Universal joints, transfer fluid case and your front/rear axle surfaces inspected. You should also replace your engine air filter.
  • 60,000 Miles- If you're using your Ram 1500 for a lot of trailering and towing, this is where you'll have your automatic transmission fluid and filters replaced.
  • 100,000 Miles- At this service interval, on top of the many replacements and inspections, you'll have to add a few new items to the list. You'll need to have your spark plugs replaced. You'll also need your PCV valve inspected and possibly replaced.
  • 120,000 Miles- If your Ram 1500 is equipped with a 6-speed automatic transmission, this is the point where you change out the fluid and filters. You'll also need to change the transfer fluid case.
  • 150,000 Miles- During this service interval, you'll need to have your engine coolant flushed and replaced.
