Re: ENFORCER'S Oil Change Guide for a 2011 VM Motori CRD

I found that the vehicle on my sloppy drive way varies the oil indication from MIN to MAX that's approx 1 litre of difference. So I'm not sure if Enforcer volume requirment was with the vehicle on the ramps or not.

Here it outlines the capacity to be 9.08 Litres (9.6 quarts) with filter.

Re: ENFORCER'S Oil Change Guide for a 2011 VM Motori CRD

My memory was jogged by posts about WK2 oil change on another forum and it relates to the fact that the Jeep has an indication come up in the EVIC whenever the computer decides that your driving warrants an oil and filter change.
Apparently it monitors the starts and driving conditions and hence the vehicle could do more or less than 10,000k (Australian recommended interval, which is different to NZ and Europe it seems).

I understand some people may not want to wait for the indicator to do a service.

This note from the manual....
"To reset the oil change indicator system (after performing the scheduled maintenance) refer to the following procedure.
1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position (Do not start the engine).
2. Fully depress the accelerator pedal, slowly, three times within 10 seconds.
3. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF/LOCK position."

Should / could this reset advice be added to the oil change guide to avoid having the system message come on some time after you just serviced it??

Anyone seen it come on?

Re: ENFORCER'S Oil Change Guide for a 2011 VM Motori CRD

Should be checking your oil warm or hot.

Problem when it is cold you the dip stick out, cold oil covers the guide tube as you pull the stick out. Then when re inserted and pulled out you get oil all over the dip stick.
Doing it warm the oil drains of the guide tube much faster and does not make such a mess and give false readings.
Oil expands when it is hot, never want an over full sump. Can do more damage then under full. (in a short period).
Never use a rag that has been used to clean a windscreen or for polishing. It not only could contaminate your oil but leave behind chemicals on the dipstick that dispels oil. Meaning the oil will not cling to the dipstick so every time you dip it shows little or no oil.

There is a TSB regarding an addendum to the drivers manual - applicable to export CRD models and regarding the oil change indcator system.
http://www.wk2jeeps.com/tsb/tsb_wk2_2600212.pdf
The procedure described in the TSB to reset the oil change indicator system is different to that in the manual in section 4.

Maybe worth downloading and sticking in a file rather than hoping Chrysler will send a copy in the post.

So it has to meet either MS-11106 or MB 229.51 but it also has to meet ACEA C3. I couldn't find many oils that confirmed meeting MS-11106 but heaps that met MB 229.51. However, when you then also include the ACEA C3 requirement, the numbers shrink dramatically. This is the quick list I've come up with:
  • bp Visco 7000 5W-30
  • Castrol SLX Professional OE 5W-30
  • Castrol Edge Professional OE-X 5W-30
  • Mobil 1 ESP Formula 5W-30
  • Pennzoil Platinum Low SAPS
  • Pennzoil Platinum VX
  • Pennzoil Ultra Euro L
  • Shell Helix Diesel Ultra AB-L
  • Shell Helix Diesel Ultra Extra
  • Shell Helix Ultra Extra
  • Total Quartz INEO MC3 5W-30
  • Valvoline SynPower MST 5W-30
This list is rough and ready. You will have to confirm the suitability yourself. Also it is likely some of these are not available in your local market. This is just to show that in the case of our CRDs, oils certainly ain't oils!

Hi Guys,

For the Aussies with GC Diesels looking to do their own oil changes I have found a few more oils that meet the required spec.

- AC Delco Supreme plus 5w30 C3 engine oil ( 5lt pn 89063549 ) ( Fuchs
GT1 Pro C3 rebranded as Ac Delco oil )
- Fuchs Titan GT1 Pro C3 5w30
- Caltex Havoline Ultra S 5w30
- Castrol Edge Professional OE-X 5w30 ( only available in 20 L )

I went with the AC Delco ( Fuchs ) 5w30 mainly because it is available
from holden dealerships and easy for me to get hold of ,unlike the others I have mentioned .

Cheers

Penrite 0il will probably suit. ECO 5w30.

I Assume that you are referring to Enviro+ 5W30. No, it doesn't comply with ACEA C3. Enviro+ 5W40 does comply, albeit with a slightly thicker warm viscosity. I have used Penrite for many years but was not willing to compromise spec on this vehicle, if only because of warranty should that be required. I think that Chrysler Jeep Australia would be difficult to deal with if things ever got to that stage.

I ended up using Shell Helix Ultra Extra that complies with all specs, even mentions the Chrysler Material Standard MS-11106 on the bottle that is referenced in the owners manual, for what it is worth.

Expensive oil though.

Re: ENFORCER'S Oil Change Guide for a 2011 VM Motori CRD

Has anybody tied or been able to get a statement from Chrysler/Jeep Australia concerning which oils are acceptable. Just preparing to justify supplying my own "Shell Helix Ultra Extra"

Re: ENFORCER'S Oil Change Guide for a 2011 VM Motori CRD

Jeep will charge you way more than any BYO oil. Why not just use the Nulon, it was $109 from supercrap auto when I was there the other day for 10lt and it matches all the requirements.

Re: ENFORCER'S Oil Change Guide for a 2011 VM Motori CRD

I notice in the Caravanners Forum that oil change periods for CRD in New Zealand has been changed to 20000km (Page 94)
