2012 Ram 1500 Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your Ram's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Ram tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your 1500’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your 1500 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my 1500 transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Ram 1500’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Ram. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
