Questions About 2019 Ram 1500’s Transmission

  • What happens when you "ride" your Ram's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. 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 volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your 1500 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. 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.
  • When should I have my 1500's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Ram 1500 transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
