How Often to Change 2017 Ram ProMaster 2500 Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Ram ProMaster 2500’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Ram recommends changing your 2017 ProMaster 2500’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your ProMaster 2500 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Ram recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Ram ProMaster 2500. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Ram ProMaster 2500?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2017 Ram ProMaster 2500 motor oil: either synthetic or conventional.

During an oil change, a technician will change your ProMaster 2500's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your ProMaster 2500 by taking into account your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2017 Ram ProMaster 2500 Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Ram ProMaster 2500 motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. 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.
  • How hard is it to change Ram ProMaster 2500 oil at home? 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 changed professionally can not only reduce 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 exhaust smoke gray 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
