Jteakus: Thank you for your post. Excellent photos and description. I noticed you were using SAE 5w-30 oil instead of SAE 5w-40?

I'm thinking the 5w-30 pictured is oil he uses in a different engine. He just had that 5w-30 close at hand and used it as an o-ring lube.

Either that or he is going to guinea pig an idea for us :idea:

Need a catch pan. Before you unscrew filter housing drain water separator valve till no more diesel comes out
Excellent post and write up. I'm new to diesels, is this fuel you drain from the water catch or can you reuse the diesel you drain? I also don't know how much fuel you drain here so my question might see silly if it is a really small amount that is drained.

Just a small amount needs to be drained till you only see diesel comes out. You might not see more than a few drops of water.

Here is an official Mopar video for the same. (Just for water removal)

Yep I keep a 1/4 inch drive with 10mm socket in the Jeep at all times. Just in case I get the water light I can easily pull the cover and drain anywhere.
