What Is the Ram Maintenance Schedule?
A Ram Maintenance Schedule shows a list of tasks that our auto technicians perform on your Ram vehicle to keep it in peak running conditions, such as changing the oil or examining the brake lines. The schedule is listed in your truck owner’s manual or you can check this FAQ.
The intervals between each task are usually given in kilometres. However, if you want to know how distance translates to time, Canadian drivers average 15,200 kilometres per year and those in Ontario average 16,000 kilometres per year. This is according to Natural Resources Canada.
Are There Differences in Maintaining Different Ram 4x4 Trucks?
The tasks and intervals listed previously generally apply to the Ram 1500. We perform the same tasks for your Heavy Duty Ram 2500 0r 3500 or Chassis Cab Trucks but at different intervals.
For example, we perform the inspections and replacements listed for 32,000 and 48,000 kilometres at 32,000 kilometres and every 32,000 kilometres after that.
However, oil changes, replacements of air filters, and tasks related to inspecting and replacing the engine coolant and transfer case fluid happen at the same intervals.
What Is the Maintenance Schedule for the Ram ProMaster Like?
Maintaining the Ram ProMaster entails the same schedule as the Ram 1500 but with fewer tasks:
Oil changes are shown by the Oil Change Indicator System with the same recommendations to rotate tires, check and fill other fluids, and inspect the battery, hoses, and other components at the same time.
Beginning at 32,000 kilometres and every 32,000 kilometres after that, we inspect and replace, if needed, the front suspension, tie rod ends, boot seals. We also replace the cabin/air conditioning fluid. The brake fluid is replaced every two years.
Beginning at 48,000 kilometres and every 48,000 kilometres after that, we inspect the CV joints and replace the engine filter.
At 96,000 and 192,000 kilometres, we change the automatic transmission fluid and filter, and at 160,000 kilometres, we inspect and replace the PCV valve if needed.
