Oil Change Q&A for Your 2018 Ram ProMaster 2500

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Ram ProMaster 2500? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, engine 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 your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. 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 ProMaster 2500 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
