Re: First oil change on V6

i got might done at the dealer last week at 1000 miles. overkill, but i was there for something else, figured just get it done for piece of mind..

5w30 1081090 4761838-ma is what they put. I believe this is a synthetic oil from Pennzoil.

Re: First oil change on V6

I did the first oil change on mine at ~5000 KMs/3100 miles this past weekend. I am stunned at how easy the oil change is on the V6. Filter is on top of the engine!

Switched to a full synthetic : Pennzoil Ultra 5W-30 + Mopar MO-744 filter

Re: First oil change on V6

My father and cousin both mechanics always use Mobil1 oil. What is everyone's choice of oil on this forum? I looked at Royal Purple and it looks good on paper but I dont know.

Re: First oil change on V6

3,900 miles. The dealer was my only choice at the time for the oil filter and air filter purchase. Walmart for my Castrol 5w30 and changed the oil myself in 10 minutes. No problems.

Re: First oil change on V6

If you change your own oil, can Chrysler say that they are not covering certain items under warranty because there is no written proof of the change?

Keep your receipts for the oil and filter you bought! Also keep records of DIY maintenance. That is your proof!

I also go a step further and take timestamped photos of the change, including a photo of the odometer.

Re: First oil change on V6

Done at a dealer at 4207 miles (got the reminder at 3500 miles). Did not ask for any specific type of oil so it was whatever they put in it. Could be wrong but with 4000 mile changes as long as the oil is the correct viscosity I'm not going to obsess over it.

I go with full synthetic on my other car (Volvo S40) because it has a turbo and the intervals are longer (7500 miles). I hope it is worth spending the extra $$ for the oil.

Re: First oil change on V6

Re: First oil change on V6

I've got my oil and filters waiting. Just waiting for the EVIC to tell me its time. Only 3700 miles.

8000 miles is the "absolutely do not exceed" number. If the car's computer decides the engine is getting heavy use, it will request new oil at 4000 miles. The reminder comes on 500 miles before the oil change is needed.
