I'm a new owner of a 2000 Dodge Ram Pleasure Way with a 360 v8 motor. I need some info but don't know where to find it. Like: what motor oil should I use, and what trany oil. I didn't get any paperwork or manuals with it. Thank you. Rain.

Welcome to the forum. Even though there should be some kind of sticker under the hood or nearby the engine to give a couple specs, sparkplug gap, etc., it usually lists oil type. If not, there really isn't a specific you need under normal weather conditions, where it is above freezing and under 95ish, and that is a standard 10-30 or 10-40, both good for heavy vehicle driving around and won't thin out under the stress of travelling. You could also go with a synthetic if you intend to travel a lot, helps keep from changing the oil so often, that would be a 5-30 weight and can be good for a little improvement of gas mileage. The transmission is a little easier. ATF-4. It is a synthetic and used on everything after the early 90s, anything else will mess the transmission selonoids up.
