How Often to Get 2017 Ram ProMaster 3500 Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2017 Ram ProMaster 3500? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just 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 2017 Ram ProMaster 3500’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Ram-recommended oil change intervals, your ProMaster 3500 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Ram recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Ram ProMaster 3500. 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.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2017 Ram ProMaster 3500

  • What can low oil do to my Ram ProMaster 3500 engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Ram ProMaster 3500 engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Ram ProMaster 3500 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Ram ProMaster 3500 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
