Your 2019 2500’s oil should be changed according to Ram’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your 2500 in the above table. No matter the mileage, your 2500 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Ram if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Ram 2500. 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 2500 Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Ram 2500 engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your 2500’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Ram 2500 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
