Asked by May 18, 2014 at 04:39 PM about the Dodge Ram 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just sold my son's 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 Pickup.  The buyer, from out of town, cannot
find the oil cap.  Where is it?  How many quarts does this engine take (it has no service
manual).

first off i am pretty sure it not a 5.7 either it a 4.7, 5.2, or 5.9 oil cap. 5 to 6 qts. oil cap is either on the right side valve cover or to the right of the air box

the oil cap should be in the front right of the engine and it takes about 6 qts. unless you have customizations.
