How Often to Get 2020 Ram 3500 Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Ram 3500’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Ram recommends having your 2020 Ram 3500’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your 3500 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Ram recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Ram 3500. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Ram 3500?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2020 Ram 3500 motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Ram has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2020 Ram 3500 vehicles. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, regulate engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your 3500’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your 3500 by considering your driving habits, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2020 Ram 3500 Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Ram 3500? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Ram 3500 engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Ram 3500 oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Ram 3500 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of 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, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
