When to Change 2017 Ram ProMaster City Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2017 Ram ProMaster City? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 2017 ProMaster City’s oil should be changed according to Ram’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your ProMaster City may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Ram ProMaster City. 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.

2017 Ram ProMaster City Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Ram ProMaster City 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 Ram ProMaster City 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 City oil at home? 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 changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Ram ProMaster City exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
