2013 Ram 3500 Transmission Q&A

  • 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 a moving trailer, no matter how small. Defying your 3500 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.
  • When should I have my 3500's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2013 3500’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.
