RAM 1500 Oil Type

2023 RAM 1500 Towing a Boat

Do you enjoy taking care of the pickup that takes care of you around Nickerson? We understand because you want to treat your investment with TLC as a RAM 1500 pickup owner. You’ll need to know the right RAM 1500 oil type ahead of your next oil change in your Buhler driveway. The manufacturer-recommended RAM 1500 oil for the engine depends on your specific model and year.

Find out more details about the recommended RAM 1500 oil type with our informative guide from Allen Samuels Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram.



What Is The RAM 1500 Oil Type?

The correct RAM 1500 oil type for a gasoline engine is MaxPro SAE 0W-20 full synthetic oil for the 3.6L V6 gasoline engine, as recommended by Mopar. Install SAE 5W-20 full synthetic oil if your truck has the larger 5.7L V8 HEMI gasoline engine.

When you own a RAM 1500 with the 3.0L EcoDiesel engine, you’ll need 5W-40 synthetic blend oil as the RAM 1500 oil type. The manufacturer also recommends DEF fluid for diesel engines because they have different parts and combustion systems than gasoline engines.

Meanwhile, the eTorque system will also need lubrication on the front axle and rear differentials. The manufacturer recommends 5W-20 motor oil for best results with this lubrication.

No matter what oil you need, you can’t go wrong with the RAM 1500 oil type from Mopar. The manufacturer also recommends its RAM 1500 oil filter for every oil change for best results.

Synthetic vs. Conventional RAM 1500 Oil Type

When changing your RAM 1500 oil, you have a choice between conventional (regular) oil and full synthetic oil. Our service team highly recommends full synthetic oil (or a synthetic blend for diesel) because it lasts longer, lowers your overall costs, and keeps your engine cleaner.

Rather than every 3,000 to 5,000 miles, synthetic oil doesn’t need to be changed until every 7,500 to 10,000 miles. Your RAM 1500’s oil life monitor will tell you when it’s time for an oil change near Newton.

OEM parts, including MaxPro oil and a RAM 1500 oil filter, are best for your RAM because they meet the manufacturer’s standards. Also, having the right RAM 1500 oil filter and oil type can help you maintain your truck for longer periods of time.
