What Kind of Oil Does Your RAM Truck Need?

February 10th, 2023 by

It’s common knowledge that vehicle owners need to change their oil regularly — routinely changing your oil keeps your engine running smoothly, so all the moving parts work together in synchronicity with less friction. Did you also know the type of oil you use is important? When it comes to your RAM oil change routine, choosing the correct oil is crucial.

Here at Prestige Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM of Las Vegas, NV, our service professionals pride themselves on providing guidance when you need it most. When it comes time for your next oil change, we can help you access the best quantity and quality of oil to use.

Factors to Consider

Most vehicles require an oil change around the 5,000 to the 7,000-mile mark. Depending on the year, make, and trim of your RAM truck, this mark can vary. A good rule of thumb is to schedule an oil change at least twice a year.

Regardless of how often you come in for an oil change, though, it’s important to routinely check your oil, even if your oil sensor or dipstick indicator reads normally. Old oil is less effective and won’t lubricate the inner workings of your engine properly, especially in extreme climates and conditions.

The Right Oil Type

The correct type of oil to use and the amount will depend on your engine type. The average RAM 1500 truck will require about six quarts of a synthetic oil blend. Recommended and trusted brands for RAM are Pennzoil, Shell, and Helix. Keep in mind that no matter what oil you use, it won’t benefit your truck unless it is changed regularly!
