  1. Oil and filter combination

    LD RAM - General Discussion
    I own a 2019 ram 1500 classic with a 5.7 l hemi engine. I've been searching for the holy Grail and regards to oil and filter and I think I found the perfect combination. I have chosen to use wolf's head full synthetic oil with a wix filter. Seems like the ticking on the cold start has gone away...

  4. Early Oil Change?

    6.4L (392 cu in) HEMI V8 Specific Topics
    Any input on an early oil change? I come from the school of 3K miles for conventional and 5k miles for synthetic on an oil change. That said, I'm thinking of doing an early change just to make sure everything is clean as can be at the 3k mark. I like the concept behind the Pennzoil Ultra...
  5. Oil change 2014 RAM 2500 Cummins Diesel?

    2014 Dodge Ram Forum
    Hi, I bought a new Ram 2500 4x4 Diesel (6.7L Cummins) in December 2014. The manual doesn't tell when the oil needs to be changed. Now my odometer has passed 5000 miles and I still don't see a warning for Oil Change. Does anyone know when oil and filters needs to be changed? Thanks, Rogier

    Just traded my 02 dodge ram 1500 for a ram 2500 mega cab with the 6.7 Cummins diesel, and I'm new to the diesel world so I had a couple oil change questions. When is the first oil change recommended? And also what is the best oil to use for these engines?

  9. Oil sludge and other Q's?

    4.7L PowerTech V8 Specific Topics
    Recently purchased 2002 that's sort of limping around, begging for some TLC. Poor Silver dropped his 8th cylinder rocker arm two times, and had a major coolant leak. But, I believe that I have those issues fixed. *knock on wood* I haven't had any issues there, and adding Seafoam motor treatment...
