Oil Change Q&A for Your 2016 Ram ProMaster 3500

  • What can low oil do to my Ram ProMaster 3500 engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Ram ProMaster 3500 engine to fail. 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 ProMaster 3500 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
