Here's what confuses me. Following this forum makes me feel guilty that I don't do EVERYTHING on my Jeep myself. Hell...there are people on here who regear their own Jeeps. Given that "peer pressure", how is it that members don't change their own oil? It's not a I-don't-have-time issue because I can't drive to my dealer in the time it takes me to change it myself.
Peripheral benefit: you don't have to fight with the dealer over Rotella T-6.
Yea, if it was just Rotella and metal screw on filter I would never take it to the dealer but for the price I'm gonna let them finish what they promised.If I was lucky and personally knew the guy that was working on my Jeep, I'd have no real issue letting the dealer save me some $$$. However my peace of mind is worth the extra.....what, maybe $260 in oil and filters to do it myself.
Run it.I just spoke to Amsoil asking the same question--the product engineer swears that this meets both MS-12991 and API SN
I do not. I don't believe there is anything out there for ecodiesels. And if there is something, there is some debate as to whether or not they cause more harm than good.Do you have a bypass filtration system picked out? I'd love something "plug and play".
This is exactly why I change my own oil: it avoids any silliness, is easy, and I enjoy it. It costs a little under $100, and for me that's money well-spent.Finally had my first service and oil change done. I knew that I might have to go to bat regarding the correct oil so I told the service tech that my Jeep takes different oil than the gen 2 diesels and he said yeah he knew.
Fast forward and I check the parts list when picking the Jeep up and they had the wrong part numbers listed. Thank you to this forum I was able to point out the error and provide them with the correct part number for the correct oil. They told me they did it right. I told them to check with the parts manager and make sure because I was certain it was wrong. They did and they realized that they had messed up.
The service writer said that the system automatically told them to put the Rotella into the Jeep and claimed that they just followed the specs given by the service through running the Jeep's VIN. Meybe they're telling me the truth, I don't know.
It took about another hour and a half but they changed out the oil, supposedly. So thank you guys for the dialogue and making sure that my oil change was done correctly.
I highly recommend that you guys tell your dealers to place the empty bottles of oil, parts packaging, and old parts into the trunk of your Jeep. That way you can be certain of what product they're using. I didn't do it this time but I'm definitely going to do it from now on just to make sure that they do what they say they do.
Yeah, I'm gonna have to call them up and see what' s going on. They should have know this.
