Re: Whats your choice of oil for your WK2?

I use Mobil One, but I am not attached to it. Any good deal on a Full Synthetic and I'll jump on it. I always go with the Manufacturers recommendations as far as Weight.

As far as an eco diesel always use an oil that Meets the "MS-11106" specification. When getting your oil changed, don't trust them, ask to see the bottle. I had a problem getting someone to use VW-507 spec oil in my TDI they were about to fill it with the wrong oil. My VW manual said if you don't use the right oil you might die as a result. The dealer should use the correct oil, as every Chrysler / Jeep dealer has some new diesels they are servicing. Also, if the dealer uses the wrong oil and as a result the engine fails, they will pay.

Re: Whats your choice of oil for your WK2?

no i am not bill i have no agenda here, just offering advise same as you. like i have pointed out the oil meets chrysler specs and thats all that matters to some... i have said many times use what YOU are happy with but the manual is not gospel. dealing with warranty claims weekly/daily i can assure you the oil in this case would not be questionable or contested as it meets specs..

Re: Whats your choice of oil for your WK2?

Does anyone know about "Mobil Super™ Synthetic"? It is a full synthetic like Mobil 1™ and it meets Chrysler's MS-6395, unlike Mobil 1™.

My dealer's service department told me Mobil 1™ 5W-20 was fine as was any 5W-20 oil.

go figure use what your happy with but dont discount the fact that there are guys here who know what they are talking about with the actual facts to back themselves up from many years of experience and daily dealings with oil companies.

I would think in general el cheapo manufacturers avoid "0w" recs because they are in general synthetic only, so that would meean more red on the bottom line because they buy a lot of oil for their cars. The 0W is little different than 5W in testing vis, but the base oils to get there are what matters. And as for the fuels being different in europe, that may be moreso for diesel. The ash content of oils is an issue in that regard, but I think the whole 5w-30 bandwagon is EPA stuff. I havre the feeling the top car makers in europe have enough clout to prevent such there. And in that regard, many manufacurers use 0w- oils.


And can I just say for those who are mad we like to discuss oil, that regurgitating what the manual says and that a warranty might be void is really not an opinion on oil. I think it can be assumed that if you don't have a thought other than the manual speak than you can stay quiet, and if you are quiet you follow the manual, so the few of us who discuss oil issues can do so without mad dogma overload. Do you actually think people read this and also don't read the manual and know about their cars? How vane. Who do you think we are?


As for Amsoil meeting the spec for jeep that is funny. They don't often pay for the actual manufacturer to approave them as they are small (not that that should matter to anyone).. I live near their headquarters, and I think they make good stuff. I don't think these "specs" mean much, but for Amsoil to say they make oil that meets the ""spec" and for Chrysler to agree are two different things. I wonder what the wording is exactly on the label. "approved by Chrysler" vs "meets the spec (per our testing).. is what I'm getting at. Just sayin'...

I dunno, I've been driving for 41 years and have owned a lot of vehicles in that time. I've always followed the oil recommendations and service intervals in the owners manual and never had any kind of oil related problem or failure. I've never felt a need to spend extra for exotic or synthetic blends.

You see, the nice thing about a forum is that we can and do say what we want. You can sit here and talk about oil to your heart's content while some of us sit here, read and laugh at it.

Google is your friend have a read what it says about it, like I said in a previous post Is your Engine Oil Correct in Australia it's the only oil I can get in Australia that actually states it meets the Chrysler MS spec , all the other oil's mentioned in my other thread do not mention the MS spec so I'll use it for that reason
