How Often to Change 2015 Ram 1500 Oil

Need more info about 2015 Ram 1500 oil changes? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Ram recommends changing your 2015 1500’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your 1500 in the above table. Outside of Ram-recommended oil change intervals, your 1500 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Ram recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Ram 1500. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Ram 1500?

You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your 1500 by taking into account your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2015 Ram 1500

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Ram 1500? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your 1500’s 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 1500 oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces 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 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
