Just another Synth oil ?
 
Would like to start using synthetic oil in my 08 Ram.

Read in the manual about oil wieght and viscosity needs.


Does going with synth affect anything as long as its the same wieght?

Will it affect my warranty?

MDS ?

It shouldn't affect anything as long as use the same weight. I have been running synthetics in my vehicles for a long time, with no problems. I am currently using AMS in my Nitro with no problems and I am very happy with it. Just don't jump between regular oil one change and synthetic the next. That isn't good, it is better to stick to one or the other.

How many Miles do you have ?

2000mi

Considering an early oil change soon.

I would wait for the 3,000 break in then change over to the synthetic. Just my 2 cents.

There should be no issues just keep your receipts to cover the warranty. For your own pc of mind I would call the dealer. :smileup:
That's a sharp looking truck Moleman :smile:

It wont affect your warranty at all! I am running amsoil 0W-50 since the first oil change.

i wouldnt kno about warranty cuz i aint got one, but with all my vehicles when i do the first oil change i change to synthetic n keep it there, i usually change every 5-8k after the change, oil still comes out lookin good. ive used mobil1, and im currently using quakerstate q-horsepower 5or10w-30 cant remember :) maybe i should figure that out before next change...:/ nice looking truck tho, you've got a sexy beast on ur hands

I have always changed the factory fill at 1000 miles. You would not believe all the junk that is in the oil. I will do another 3000 mile oil change with a Group III synthetic and after that use what you want. If you have the 5.7 HEMI use 5W20 motor oil.
