Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Thickens the Plot!

Just got off the phone to the Castrol Help line and the 5W-30 FST is a new product and is C3 rated. The Titanium product is not. The oil is just hitting the shelves now and when he checked the was surprised to find the Websites havn't been updated. The TDS for the 0W-40 FST is there but the TDS for 5W-30 is not.

Obviously still in transition to the new product.

Good news that there is another possible aternitive though, other than MS-11106 thing, but post warranty....... Probably worth trying. As will be Penrite Enviro + 5W-30.

I'm currently using the Mobil 1 ESP 5W-30 as that is technically the only oil that meets the specs including MS-11106 (which incidently I think is less important, but to avoid warranty wiggle room..). Never been a big fan of Mobil 1 after a bad experience a few years ago, so after she is out of warranty, the Mobil 1 will most likely go.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Thanks to Saw79 for the heads up from their dealer.
This TSB is relevant to every MY14 in Aus. For the cruise control aspect. We are Euro 5 compliant so the knocking noise is not for us.

TSB 18-019-14
FLASH: CRUISE CONTROL INOPERATIVE AND/OR KNOCKING (DETONATION) SOUND (3.0L diesel)
(export models only)

http://www.wk2jeeps.com/tsb/tsb_wk2_1801914.pdf

NOTE: This bulletin applies to WK vehicles equipped with a 3.0L engine (sales code EXF) and Euro 5 OR Euro Stage 4 Emissions (sales code NBC or NB4) built on or before 2/7/2014 (MDH 0207XX).

SYMPTOM/CONDITION:
A small number of customers may experience Cruise Control lock out (inoperative) after several “+” cruise button inputs attempting to increase Cruise Set Speed. Turning the ignition off and back on will clear the condition.
Some vehicles equipped with Euro 4 Emissions (sales code NB4) may experience a knocking noise due to detonation.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Many have shown them on their invoice, so yes it can be done as normal practice for a dealer. There will be pics floating in this and probably the service thread.

Not yet. I'll have the dealer fit it when the new DPF assembly and rear shockers arrive - in another four or so weeks.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

The Nulon Oil I have been using is C3 and MB 229.51 certified. It may be a suitable alternative and much cheaper than Mobil1

Post warranty, I'll probably give the Nulon a try. I'm heading down the path of oil testing so will set my base lines based on Mobil 1 ESP while still in warranty and then will try the Nulon, Penrite and the new Castrol C3 and see how they stack up. I'll call it a Hobby.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

I've haven't had any DPF issues with my Overland. At the 10,000 klm service they ( John Hughes) used Castrol OEX Professional and after an addittional 5,000 klm I still haven't had any issues (touch wood). Could be that every time I leave home I travel at least 20 klm at 80 or above.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Oh well, at 25,000km, my my14 has just had a full dpf limp home mode. Booked in for a regen and a car that rarely does short trips, adm when it's on the highway, it's not usually slow .

Better be a problem with the computer coz I'm buggered if I will put up with this as std fare ( also EVIC hasn't been updated I don't think)

Geeeezzz Guys and SNUKE.
All this oil jargon. I haven't a clue what's going on. If you want to discuss Canola, Vegetable, Pea nut or Olive oil etc. I'm with you. SNUKE this sounds like an issue for you to commence a special Oils aint Oils thread.
