When it comes to RAM truck fans, performance is a huge deal. The amount of horsepower and torque an engine can provide can make all the difference in a driver’s overall satisfaction. That said, more than your engine can contribute to performance. Your engine is made up of a ton of intricate moving parts, all of which generate damaging friction. Excess friction can also cause your engine to work harder than necessary, hindering performance. Fortunately, you can hinder this friction using motor oil.

Motor oil is a lubricant and contrary to popular belief can be just as important as the engine beneath the hood. Although, much like gasoline, motor oil can run out over time, becoming clogged with grime. This grime reduces the lubricating effect motor oil is supposed to provide, causing greater friction.

Our WI RAM service team recommends that drivers receive a professional motor oil change once every 3,000 to 5,000 miles in order to avoid long-term engine damage. At the same time, it is also wise to ask your car care expert what kind of motor oil you should put in your engine. There are four different kinds to make note of: full synthetic oil, conventional oil, synthetic blend, and high mileage motor oil.

If you have any questions regarding motor oil changes, we’ve got your answers at Van Horn Truck Center. We understand the value of a high-performing RAM truck and will go above and beyond to ensure you get all the power possible from your engine.
