2021 Ram 2500 Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Ram 2500 motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Ram 2500 engine failure. 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? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil 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 2500 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
  • Where can I get Ram 2500 oil changes? Firestone Complete Auto Care is here to care for your vehicle with our Ram 2500 oil changes and more. Our expert technicians will also suggest the best oil for your vehicle, address oil leaks, and swap out your oil filter.
  • Why is the oil light on in my Ram 2500? If you’re overdue for an oil change, it might trigger your Ram 2500 oil change reminder light. If the oil pressure light is illuminated, it could be due to low engine oil, a failing oil pump, a malfunctioning oil pressure sensor, or a clogged oil filter.
  • Do I need to change my 2500's oil filter when I get an oil change? It's recommended that you replace your Ram 2500 oil filter with every oil change. Otherwise, you send fresh, clean motor oil through a dirty filter. That's like putting on muddy socks after a shower.
