Have roughly a 1k miles left before oil change is required and the oil indicator hit 0% today just wondering why and if i should be concerned
Hi: Patroller8D... The EcoD's have been known to "Self destruct" for less. LoLWell I wouldn't be doing mad cat laps around the living room. Those things work on algorithms of speed, time, temperature, towing and probably a few other things. 1K miles won't cause anything to self destruct.
hmmm, my 2015 has NEVER varied from straight mileage.The oil change indicator has always (at least on ecodiesels) been an algorithm not just straight mileage count down. Things like short trips and frequent regens greatly effect the mileage. Thats why fca says to follow the oil life indicator and that the maximum oil change interval is 10k.
If possible, post your UOA here: (148) Official 2020+ EcoDiesel UOA Reports | RAM 1500 Diesel ForumYep my 21 is on par for maybe around 6k oil change for its first change. Was mostly reduced after a couple hot and heavy tows up the mountains. I’m taking a sample this week to test it.
