Ram service is an important part of keeping your vehicle running well and efficiently, and helps to reduce the risk of needing costly repairs. You need to follow a regular schedule to make sure you are not missing the right dates to service your Ram vehicle. In this article, we cover a few of the major indicators that you should get your vehicle into the shop for a service.

The First Service

After the first six months of owning your vehicle, or when you hit 8,000 miles, you should consider getting your first service done. It involves changing the oil filter and rotating the tyres if there is even the slightest sign of wear on them. A visual inspection can help you find more things that need to be repaired or topped up, so make sure you or your service center perform one.

The Next Two Services

After 12 months or 20,000 miles, it's time for the next service. This Ram service applies for whichever milestone comes first, and is a core service that involves an oil change, cabin air filter change, inspection of the brake lining, and inspection of the tie rod ends and front suspension, changing them as necessary.

Again, depending on which milestone you reach first, after 18 months or 30,000 miles is the next time your car should be taken to the shop. This will involve checking the CV or universal joints and inspecting the transfer case fluid as well as the front and rear axle surfaces.

After the First Few Years

Apart from your annual inspection, your vehicle will need to head back to get a more extensive Ram service after 72 months or 100,000 miles. At this point, the inspection needed will be of the PVC valve, spark plugs, and the filter of the engine air cleaner. These will also be replaced if necessary, otherwise they may be dealt with at the next servicing.

After 90 months or 120,000 miles, your vehicle will be the best point at which to rotate the tyres if they haven't been rotated already, inspect the CV joints and exhaust system as well as the front and rear axle fluid. You may also need to lube the front drive shaft fitting and change the automatic transmission fluid and filters. The final service is at the 150,000 Mile or 90 Month mark during which you should flush and replace your engine coolant as well as rotate your tires.

With the Ram brand named the Best Truck Brand of 2020 by both U.S. News and World Report, it is clearly a great vehicle to have. As long as you service it as often as necessary, and you will enjoy a lifetime of great service from it in return.
