2022 Ram 1500 Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Ram's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and 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.
  • Does my 1500's transmission fluid need to be inspected? 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
  • Can my Ram 1500 leak transmission fluid? Yes. Ram 1500 transmission fluid can leak as time passes, which may lead to transmission problems.
