Re: Oil Change

The filter on the V6 doesn't retain oil. It is on top of the engine. If you were to take the filter out you could see this. I've checked my oil level when I first brought my Cherokee home and it was at the add line both right after running and the next day before starting. Added about 3/4 quart to get it into the "safe" area.

How much oil is needed for an oil change on the 2015 Cherokee w/ 3.2l V6?
My user guide states 5.6l or 6 us quarts with a new filter.
Took it to Dealer where we bought it (new). Took 6 quarts of oil to use (synthetic). When it was done they told me I didn't bring enough oil and to add a quart when I got home (had more at home). They said it was only at the "add" line when done being changed.
I checked when home - it was just above the "add" line. Added another quart. Now up to 7 quarts in it.
Has anyone else had this experience? Is user guide wrong?

Thank's in advance for answers.
Johnny

Depending on the vehicle options, some 3.2l have an auxiliary oil cooler, that might be why it requires a little more oil than specified in the manual.

I just checked my Build Sheet under Optional Equipment and found the Oil Cooler. Interesting.

Now that's interesting. I'd imagine that it's probably bundled in the towing package.
