Why is Your 2016 3500’s Transmission So Important?

The transmission delivers power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive on your terms.

They're often easy to notice. Ram 3500 transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, the car shaking on the road, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. If you don’t pay attention to Ram 3500 transmission trouble you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that your 3500 isn’t working at all.

2016 Ram 3500 Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Ram? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use 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 3500 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your 3500 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my 3500's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Ram 3500’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Ram, so check with your technician first. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
