Ram recommends changing your 2019 1500 Classic’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your 1500 Classic may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust.

Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Ram 1500 Classic. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2019 Ram 1500 Classic

  • Should I check my Ram 1500 Classic motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Ram 1500 Classic engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Ram 1500 Classic oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Ram 1500 Classic exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
