When to Change 2016 Ram ProMaster 2500 Engine Oil

Need more info about 2016 Ram ProMaster 2500 oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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.

Ram recommends having your 2016 Ram ProMaster 2500’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your ProMaster 2500 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Ram ProMaster 2500. 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 2016 Ram ProMaster 2500

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Ram ProMaster 2500? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Ram ProMaster 2500 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 ProMaster 2500 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. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle 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. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
