Asked by Mar 30, 2017 at 01:12 PM about the 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 SLT 4WD Quad Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Sorry for the stupid question but I am not mechanically inclined at all.  What
type of oil (not necessarily the brand but weight) should I use and about how
many quarts should it take?  Thank you..

Use a motor oil that is specifically for diesels. Check your owners manual but I believe you need 15W-40 diesel motor oil.

Ten to eleven quarts of oil. http://www.xtremediesel.com/fluidsandfilters_1.aspx
