2017 Ram ProMaster 1500 Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Ram ProMaster 1500 engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and eventually lead to Ram ProMaster 1500 engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Ram ProMaster 1500 oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Ram ProMaster 1500 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
