Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2019 Ram 1500? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 2019 1500’s oil should be changed according to Ram’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your 1500 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust.

In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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.

2019 Ram 1500 Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Ram 1500 engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your 1500’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Ram oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Ram 1500 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
