This is stupid. I need to service my 2018 3500 ram. If I buy oem part to do oil and fuel filter change it's $400.00 bucks. And I have to do the work. Dispose of the old oil ect
OR
I take it to town and let them do it with the same parts and oil for $250.00 plus they wash the windows and vacuum the truck. Something seems wrong here.

I can't hardly stand to pay someone to do something that I can do. But at the same time I'm not going to pay a extra $150.00 for the " privilege " to crawl under that thing either!

OEM parts a marked up a ridiculous amount just buy a good brand on sale and a quality filter for it. If they can do it for less they are cutting corners somewhere Iíd say.

YEA you will love spending the whole day sitting in the customer service dept.

John Deere riding mower's have rigged up oil filter's now as well, best check what it cost for one of those before you buy a new one also!

No i don't own any of that bs, cousin bought a new rider and told me about it last sunday. I'll stick to my old stuff i can afford.

Idk about where you are. But, my wife schedules an oil change, she drops her car off, gets a loaner and they call her when itís done. She goes back when she can later that day and gets it. Super easy.

That works if you're in the same town. I'm not so have to wait on mine while they change the oil. I've found if you're the first or near first appointment for the day you get in and out fairly quick. Otherwise you're gonna sit there for 2-3 hours.

Yeah, thatís a bunch of crap having to wait that long. She just has to drive to the dealership about 15 miles away and then come home, she can work remotely so she would just work from there. But yeah, I am not waiting that long.

I'm guessing it's a diesel that probably takes 15ish quarts of synthetic oil.

Dealers can do the oil change cheaper, because they buy oil in huge quantities, and they rely on upsells to make money as well from oil changes.

If it's a diesel.....does that price include fuel filters as well?

You can buy all that stuff plus an air filter at rock auto for under 200 bucks .


All mid grade to premium grade too , not the cheap stuff . Your truck won't know if it came frome the dealer or not

is this the kit you need?

https://klmperformance.com/products...ilter-service-kit?variant=32011559272532

looks like 143 dollars and 120 in oil you would be at 263 that beats 400
