Re: Jeep service costs

You could always do an oil analysis when you next change it. It's an interesting exercise in itself.

Cheers,
Steve

I guess you have to have some confidence that the higher spec oil actually went in, but I have become somewhat cynical as my years have advanced and I continue to learn life's lessons......
Why would the dealer have to record an inferior oil on the service invoice but actually fill with a far superior product? Of course one answer may be that the staff are trained to provide the answer you got when a customer calls back to query.
OK.
Not right to speculate - and the right outcome is that the dealer has used an oil that will do the right thing by the customer's vehicle. That's what you paid for.

I've removed the doubt and will continue to supply the dealer with an oil that does have the approval on the label.
All the best, and apologies if I stirred the possum a bit.
John
They could always use your oil in there own car and fill up your car with something else.

Re: Jeep service costs

I think of BYO oil filter for upcoming 10k service. But I don't know which brand(s) other than MOPAR® Engine Oil Filters, meets Chrysler standard. Any suggestions?

Re: Jeep service costs

I would only use Mopar, if you want the dealer to install it. I do not think they would fit non OEM, or they may be difficult about it.
I used the Westfil branded one on my CRD for the last 2 changes, but I did the work myself.

My uncle was a VW factory trained mechanic. He taught me how to pull a VW engine out in 15min. He had the airbag light come on in his prized Audi. He couldn't fix it and no one at Audi could fix it either. The experts gave up. He ended up having to stick tape over it. So Jeep is not alone in niggling problems. OK, that doesn't help but at least you are not alone.

I am currently running a Wesfil oil filter, that I supplied when I had the vehicle serviced in Broome.
Last invoice I paid for a Mopar filter was in the order of $58, and as I recall the Wesfil filter was around $30.
If you factored in a cost of sourcing the Wesfil filter, not great savings, but if you spent the same effort and sourced Mobil 1 ESP you would not only ensure the oil met the standard, you would have significant savings on what the dealer will charge for maybe an inferior oil.

Granted.
I like to think of supplying my own oil as a strategy for risk management.

I think of getting car service at NRMA service centre. I have no trouble buying Mobil ESP over the counter from non-dealer supplier. With MOPAR oil filter, is dealer the only source of supply?

What part # of Wesfil filter did u use? NRMA uses Ryco, which actually Wesfil WCO-94.

Btw, NRMA uses Valvoline Synpower MST 5W-30. Spec as follows:

SynPower MST 5W-30 is a full synthetic motor oil formulated for Mercedes Benz and other latest generation Euro diesel engines equipped with DPF technology (Diesel Particulate Filter), and/or petrol engines with TWC (Three Way Catalyst).
This oil is suitable for passenger car and light duty CDI engines (Capacitor Discharge Ignition) and DPF systems where the following specifications are listed.
SPECIFICATIONS
API: SN/CF
ACEA: A3/B4
ACEA: C3
BMW LL-04
MB 229.51
GM DEXOS 2

Re: Jeep service costs

The Wesfil oil filter for the 3.0 CRD, 2011 on, is WCO 163.
The air filter is WCA 5153.
The cabin filter is WACF 0154.
The fuel filter is WCF 203, and 2 of these are required for the change.
You should confirm with your supplier that these parts will suit your vehicle.

Mopar filters can be obtained from US suppliers.

At the risk of repeating myself, - I've stated numerous times, the oil I use is Mobil 1 ESP Formula 5W30, this is the only oil that carries the Chrysler specification MS11106 that is available in Australia.
There are other oils available that are likely very similar, I've done my research and made my choice.
