At Woody Folsom Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM, we not only provide Baxley area drivers with an amazing lineup of new RAM vehicles, but we also offer quality vehicle maintenance services. Keeping on top of your RAM 1500’s fluids, especially its oil, is critical to its lifespan. Here are the top reasons why you should get an oil change now.

Ensures Proper Engine Lubrication

Having clean oil in your engine allows all of its components to work seamlessly. When your RAM 1500 is running, all of the moving engine parts create friction and will suffer without the proper lubrication. Always check your vehicle owner’s manual to see what specific grade and weight of oil your truck needs.

Keeps Things Cool

Without lubrication, all of that friction your truck’s moving parts are making will turn into heat. Having the right amounts of clean oil will help keep your engine cool and prevent it from overheating.

Removes Sludge

Dirt and debris are your engine’s worst nightmare. Over time, that dirt can decrease your engine’s lifespan by causing corrosion. Dirty oil can also turn into “sludge,” which will cause further problems. In order to keep your RAM 1500 happy, keep the engine clean by getting routine oil changes.

Boosts Gas Mileage

Who doesn’t love to save money? By maintaining your engine’s oil, you can decrease your vehicle’s fuel consumption and save money on gas. In fact, according to the U.S. Department of Energy, regular oil changes will improve your gas mileage by one to two percent, which adds up to an entire gallon of gas a year!
