It's based on how you drive AFAIK, my dash readout says about 75% left and that's about 1800 miles since I reset, so in my case it looks to be just over 7k miles. I'll probably be changing at 6k though, that's what I've always done w/ pure synthetics in my other vehicles.What's the oil change interval for 0w20?
I've seen 6months/5000 and 12 months 10000.
What should I be for the JL?
Yes. There was indeed, and more than one. On our last oil change, the service clowns did manage to not screw up the tire rotation, bless their hearts.Yeah wasn't there just a thread here that it's supposed to be 5 qts (and of course the 0W-20 is obvious) and all dealers are getting it wrong?
If that's the way you look at it, then this forum should just be closed down because all you'll find here are opinions and personal experiences of random people all over the country. If the experience and knowledge of people who've been working on Jeeps and trucks for decades doesn't mean jack ****, then what are we all doing hanging out together here?Yes,
And if you have any trouble with your $50,000 jeep from using the wrong oil, no problem you just tell Jeep corporation that WXman online said it’s no problem and to get out their checkbooks and fix your jeep ASAP. It doesn’t matter what the owners manual says, it doesn’t matter what the people who build it say. Follow some anonymous person online because they said it. Excellent advice.
I will do it myself and use 5w-30SAE. This is the original recommendation on the 3.6 V6 engine before the politics of government CAFE regulations stepped in and demanded better gas mileage. But, there is a trade off. Less friction (thinner oil) means better fuel economy but LESS engine wear protection.Looks like 6 quarts of 5w20 Penzoil conventional. They are supposed to use the semi-synthetic (or whatever they call it) 5 quarts 0w-20 and they won't use full synthetic for your free oil changes.
They have been screwing up all changes for a year and half now.
I checked with Jeep Wave. They informed me that if I do my own oil changes to submit the receipts for reimbursement.This is the EASIEST oil change on the planet, no need to lift it up, no oil running over cross members since the filter is on top, no need to carefully measure the amount since most oil is available in 5 qt jugs. Costs about $30 w/ current oil deals, takes about 15 minutes, AND YOU KNOW IT WASN'T F'D UP!
$30 and 15 minutes of my time is much cheaper IMO than taking it to the dealer, waiting, and then having to check their work, not knowing if they over-torqued or cross threaded the drain plug, over tightened the filter cap, added too much oil. Wish I could transfer my free oil changes to someone that wants them.
ooops 6qts and 5-20...i would bring it back before you have issues with 6qts nevermind the 5-20 if thats what they used.... what motor do you have?Looking at this report does anyone know what oil they put in my Jeep? I would google it but I noticed this right before going to work.
