An oil change is a critical vehicle service that determines how efficient your vehicle is and how long it lasts. Motor oil service plays different roles in your vehicle’s engine. These functions include lubricating the engine’s moving parts, preventing corrosion, cooling the engine, and acting as a sealant against debris. Frequent oil changes directly impact the way your Ram truck runs.
If you’re constantly working with your truck, our technicians recommend changing the oil and the filter at the same time. Oil filters trap particles inside your vehicle’s engine. Changing them helps prevent clogs that could limit engine efficiency. Our technicians can help you choose the right oil for your vehicle and perform leak repairs.
How Often Should You Get an Oil Change for Your Ram?
You may need to change the oil and filter every three months or after driving for 3,000 miles. Even if you drive once a week or once a month, you’ll still need to change your vehicle’s oil. Remember, it still collects dirt and debris even if the vehicle isn’t in use.
Tires perform the heavy task of rolling and moving the vehicle. Therefore, they require regular servicing to ensure they keep your vehicle steady. When you bring your truck to us, we start our service by ensuring that the tire pressure is at the manufacturer’s recommended level. We also ensure even tread wear by rotating the four wheels in different positions.
We conduct wheel alignment to reduce wear, and if you have a flat tire, we repair or replace it for you. We use and sell Goodyear tires. Our tire service also includes discussions of other things your vehicle may need and problems your tires may have, including bubbles, bulges, or damaged side walls.
How Many Miles Can You Go Before Your Tires Need To Be Rotated?
How often you rotate your vehicle’s tires depends on whether you have front-wheel drive (FWD) or rear-wheel drive (RWD). Remember, the tires that receive power tend to wear out faster than others, making tire rotation an important part of maintaining even tread wear throughout your tires. FWD and RWD vehicles should probably have their tires rotated every 5,000 to 7,500 miles.
However, it’s crucial to consult your owner’s manual or our technicians if you’re driving a truck requiring more frequent rotation. If you own an all-wheel-drive vehicle, you should probably have your tires rotated every 3,000 to 5,000 miles.
Battery Inspection, Testing, and Replacement
A weak or old battery can damage your vehicle’s engine, which can be quite costly. Weak batteries also make driving stressful and frustrating, as the vehicle may fail to start. Your vehicle’s battery should run for about three to five years before needing replacement. Don’t hesitate to contact us when you suspect you have a bad battery.
What Are the Signs That Your Ram Truck’s Battery Is About To Die?
Signs of a dying battery include:
- Dim headlights and electrical issues.
- Hard start, especially when it’s cold.
- Cracking or swelling of the battery case.
- A smell of rotten eggs from the hood.
- Corroded connectors with ashy white substances.
Wipers are crucial in providing a clear view when it rains. Worn-out wipers can be hazardous for you, other motorists, and pedestrians, especially when it’s snowy, dusty, or rainy. At Meadowland of Carmel, we check your wipers to see if they’re won out and replace them if they appear cracked or have lost their flexibility.
Brakes are vital for any moving vehicle. Our dealership uses original equipment from Mopar for brake service. We also have certified technicians who inspect individual parts, such as brake pads, rotors, and calipers, to ensure they function optimally. If we find any damaged parts, we’ll replace them with Magneti Marelli brakes by Mopar for ultra-quiet braking. Our brake service includes brake pad resurfacing and brake flushing.
