The type of oil used in a Dodge Ram 1500 varies depending on the truck's engine, but they typically use either 5W-30 or 0W-40. Owners should check the vehicle's service manual to find out which type of oil (and sometimes the brand) the manufacturer recommends for the specific model. This manual also includes other important information such as how often to change the oil and filter.
