Questions About 2021 Ram 2500’s Transmission

  • What happens when you "ride" your Ram's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Ram? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. Defying your 2500 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • Does my 2500's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2021 2500’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. 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 Ram 2500 transmission fluid leak? Yes. Ram 2500 transmission fluid can leak over time and potentially cause transmission issues. Worn or damaged seals, a loose or damaged transmission pan, a cracked transmission housing, faulty transmission cooler lines, or an overfilled transmission could cause transmission fluid leaks.

You might even experience transmission failure.
