How Often to Get 2018 Ram ProMaster City Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Ram ProMaster City’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. 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 2018 ProMaster City’s oil should be changed according to Ram’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your ProMaster City may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Ram if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Ram ProMaster City. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2018 Ram ProMaster City

  • Should I check my Ram ProMaster City motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate excess 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.
  • Can I change my Ram oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Ram ProMaster City exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
