What Is a Maintenance Schedule?

A maintenance schedule is an outline of the various services your vehicle will need throughout its lifespan. Staying up to date on service intervals and following the recommended maintenance schedule is one of the most efficient ways of keeping your Ram 1500 running smoothly.

The sections below highlight important service intervals and their corresponding maintenance suggestions. As your Ram 1500 reaches each milestone, contact your local service center and schedule an appointment. There's no better way to keep your car in tip-top shape!

20,000 Miles

The first interval listed in the Ram 1500 maintenance schedule occurs at 20,000 miles. The key services associated with this maintenance appointment include:

  • Inspection of front suspension and tie rod ends, replacing them as needed
  • Brake lining inspection, replacing them as needed
  • Air cabin filter replacement

Although you've likely already had an oil change by the time your Ram 1500 reaches 20,000 miles, your first maintenance schedule interval is a great opportunity to receive fresh oil. Consult with your local service center to see if this is the right option for you.

30,000 Miles

At the 30,000-mile maintenance interval, technicians will inspect your Constant Velocity (CV) and Universal joints, transfer fluid, and front and rear end axle surfaces. The engine air filter should be replaced at 30,000 miles as well.

60,000 Miles

The 60,000-mile maintenance schedule includes many of the services from the 30,000-mile interval. The Ram 1500 will have its suspension, brake lining, and CV/Universal joints inspected and replaced as needed. Technicians will also replace your cabin and engine air filters to keep your Ram 1500 performing at its best.

100,000 Miles

When your Ram 1500 hits 100,000 miles, it's time to replace the pickup truck's spark plugs. Also included at this maintenance interval are a complete flush and replacement of engine coolant. The staff at your local service center will also inspect the PCV Valve and replace it if deemed necessary.

120,000 Miles

The 120,000-mile service interval includes services from previous milestones. To refresh your memory on those services, the 120,000-mile maintenance schedule includes the following procedures:
