Ram recommends having your 2018 Ram ProMaster 1500’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2018 Ram ProMaster 1500

  • 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, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Ram ProMaster 1500 engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Ram oil on my own? 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 also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Ram exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
