Ram recommends changing your 2020 1500 Classic’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above.

2020 Ram 1500 Classic Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Ram 1500 Classic? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Ram 1500 Classic engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Ram oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Ram 1500 Classic spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
