How Often to Change 2018 Ram ProMaster 3500 Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2018 Ram ProMaster 3500? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. 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 2018 ProMaster 3500’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your ProMaster 3500 in the above table. Outside of Ram-recommended oil change intervals, your ProMaster 3500 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Ram if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Ram ProMaster 3500. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2018 Ram ProMaster 3500 Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Ram ProMaster 3500 engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your ProMaster 3500’s 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 oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Ram ProMaster 3500 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
