Ram recommends having your 2021 Ram 3500’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your 3500 in the above table. Your 3500 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Ram if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, 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.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2021 Ram 3500

  • What can low oil do to my Ram 3500 engine? 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 cause your 3500’s engine to fail. 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? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Ram 3500 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
  • Who can change the oil on my Ram 3500? Firestone Complete Auto Care performs Ram 3500 oil changes and more! Our technicians also replace oil filters, troubleshoot oil leaks, and advise on the right oil for your ride.
  • What can cause the oil light on my Ram 3500 to illuminate? If you’re overdue for an oil change, it might trigger your Ram 3500 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 replace my 3500’s oil filter when changing my oil? It's recommended that you replace your Ram 3500 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.
