2018 Ram 1500 Questions & Answers

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Ram? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Ram tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your 1500’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my 1500's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2018 1500’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Ram, so check with your technician first. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
