2012 Ram 2500 Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Ram's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Ram tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your 2500 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your 2500 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my 2500's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Ram 2500 transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Ram's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
