Lol that would be great the sub product has the MS-13340 rating and the top shelf doesn’t. I tossed the bottle but will check into it.
This is why FCA put out the addendum. Any SN PLUS meets their requirements.Some oils have an SN+ rating very few meet MS-13340. Just like there is Pennzoil Platinum and Pennzoil Ultra Platinum and there is a difference. Pennzoil Ultra Platinum is always at or near no.1 in all oil test not so with Pennzoil Platinum. For 30-60k vehicles i cant fathom not using the exact spec or the top rated?
MO-339 filters can be bought for under $10 at Wal-Mart. No to hard to acquire.
Make sure it meets MS-13340 which is what you need for the 2.0 turbo. The 3.6 does not require MS-13340The full synthetic Mobil that I get does have the additive package and certifications that are specifically recommended in the owners manual. Possible that they were referencing their regular fossil oil?
Because the 2.0 is a Direct Injection engine, oils have to meet stringent standards for blow by, volatility, so as not to carbon up the intakes. I will only use the oil that meets MS-13340.Make sure it meets MS-13340 which is what you need for the 2.0 turbo. The 3.6 does not require MS-13340
Do the oil change, it's been a year already. Manufacturer recommends not going over one year between changes as far as calendar time goes.I bought a 2019 JLR 2.0 turbo in January 2020 from a dealer in CA. The vehicle was manufactured in January of 2019 so it was sitting on the lot for almost a year. Should I do an oil change now (after 3,000 miles) or wait until (?)? And, is there anything else that I need to watch out for since it was sitting so long?
Which valve do you use on yours?Penzoil Platinum as it has all the additives the 2.0L needs and the right Dexos Gen-2 specification.
For the oil filter Royal Purple is the best at both filtering capacity and flow rates. They are expensive compared to the mass produced stamped crap but well worth it. I've cut many filters open and the RP's are consistently well built.
Also check out Femco valves as it makes home oil changes a snap.
I am guessing that you have to add a little more oil than the regular 5 quarts?I'll be doing an oil change this weekend on my 2.0T. Dealer has done the previous 3. I'll be using the Pennzoil Platinum as it meets MS-13340.
Instead of the stock size filter, I am using a longer one to slightly increase oil capacity and filter area. I am a fan of Mobil-1 filters so this is what I will be using. The stock size Mobil 1 is M1-113A and the longer filter (by 1.25") is M1-212A. Without installing it, I held the longer filter in the spot and it does not appear to hang lower than the oil pan and wouldn't cause any interference with a skid plate.
