Recommended Fall Maintenance for Your Ram Truck

2019 Ram 1500 | Dixon, IL

Your Ram truck can handle any journey, but it needs help to operate at its top potential. Regular maintenance checks, especially when the seasons change, are key to keeping your truck healthy and functional. Here are some recommended services to perform for fall.

Make sure your battery is strong

Temperatures dip in the fall, and they’ll plummet even more in winter. Now is the time to make sure your battery has a lot of life left in it. If it’s weak, it’s time to install a new one.

Test your lights

Since daylight decreases as fall goes on, you’ll probably be driving more often in darkness. It’s important that your headlights are working properly. While you’re checking your headlights, review all the lights, inside and out, that your Ram truck uses.

Top off truck fluids

Your truck uses several fluids that are continually depleting. Fall is a good time to check that all fluids are at their proper levels. You will want to change the oil and check that the windshield wiper fluid is topped off. Don’t forget to check the coolant, transmission, and brake fluids, too.

Stock up on supplies

As the seasons change, so should the contents of your truck’s emergency kit. Be sure to equip your emergency kit with cold weather-appropriate supplies like gloves, blankets, ice scraper, jumper cables, flashlight, and snow brush or shovel.
