When to Change 2014 Ram C/V Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2014 Ram C/V? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Your 2014 C/V’s oil should be changed according to Ram’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Ram-recommended oil change intervals, your C/V may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess 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 go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Ram C/V. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2014 Ram C/V?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2014 Ram C/V motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Ram has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2014 C/V. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, keep the engine cool, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. In an oil change service, a technician will change your C/V's oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your C/V by considering your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2014 Ram C/V

  • What can low oil do to my Ram C/V engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and eventually lead to Ram C/V engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Ram C/V oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Ram C/V exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
