ecodiesel OEM oil filter

I went to the dealership today and they installed Mopar part # 68229402AA for a oil filter. This is not the part # specified here on the forum to be the correct one. Is this an updated filter # or the wrong filter all together? Thanks.

Re: ecodiesel OEM oil filter

The oil filter installed on your vehicle is the "new & improved" version from the original 68109834AA. The last original issue filter I purchased from the dealer cost $41. He was charging $60 for the new model. In the thread "First Oil Change" there is a picture of the 2 filters side by side.

I purchased the new model online from Mopar Overstock Parts for around $40.

There is a lot of contradictory information floating around here about which part number is the successor to the other. For example, this post showing the two side by side indicates 68109834AA is the newer part, our beloved wk2jeeps page showing 68109834AA as the correct part, as well as many other posts on this forum suggesting 68109834AA is the successor to 68229402AA.

For the very little that it's worth, I would have otherwise presumed that the higher part number was newer (i.e. presuming that 68229402AA was newer than 68109834AA), but that presumes many conditions such as the sanity of Chrysler, the absence of abstruse higher order semantics in their part number versioning scheme, etc.

No doubt either part will work fine, as they were both approved and are OEM; however, it would be nice to settle this point of confusion conclusively. It's interesting to be an EcoDiesel owner... not blinking about spending time confused about which OEM oil filter part to order and also finding it perfectly normal to spend $40+ on a paper oil filter.

Re: ecodiesel OEM oil filter

If you were to go on to a Mopar parts website such as Mopar Parts Store and enter the part number, it would show up that 68229402AA replaced 68109834AA. In fact, if you enter 68109834AA, it takes you to the page for 68229402AA.

Which stands in contrast to others' experience when talking to dealer parts departments, as mentioned here

I already tried that on mopar.com and it didn't do that.

68109834AA
68229402AA

That's the trouble: deciding which source of conflicting information to hold as canonical. Now, if you had demonstrated that www.mopar.com indicated that the part replacement was this way (vs. some third party web shop with a database of unknown provenance) then that would probably be unequivocally canonical.

As it stands, I don't know whose data to believe.

Re: ecodiesel OEM oil filter

Using this site: Shop for parts and Accessories | Mopar as part of Mopar.com, searching the first number 68109834AA comes up with the oil filter. It also shows a caution message in red saying that the part number has been superseded by 68229402AA.

I don't even know what
canonical means, but I believe this demonstrates the correct part number unequivocally.

Re: ecodiesel OEM oil filter

Part # 68229402AA is indeed the latest # and will work with the WK2 and Ram ecodiesel.

Hey, thanks! That settles the matter of which is the canonical part (haha).

I had previously searched the mopar.com website by entering the part numbers in the search box in the upper right corner of the page, which does *not* do what you described (as my links in the previous post show). However, entering the part number in the search link you provided there does show the message about the part being superseded, as you said.

Now we just need to work on getting the wk2jeeps site updated to indicate that 68229402AA is the current part number and has supplanted the old 68109834AA part.

Re: ecodiesel OEM oil filter

The filter media is the same, the o-ring location has changed. The o-ring has been moved up on the newer filter. If you use the older filter on the Ram you won't get proper oil pressure. The new filter can be used on either. There wasn't really an upgrade just a consolidation.

Re: ecodiesel OEM oil filter

Due to thee present lack of aftermarket options on the filter and proper oil, I would save some $ and do the changes myself, if I owned the 3.0 diesel.

Hahahaha... *whew*! Saving money by doing it yourself?!

I do all the oil changes myself because I want them done correctly. I do it myself despite the fact that it costs *more*, at $40 for the filter plus $70 for the 2 gallons of Mobil1 5W30ESP, than if I let the dealer do it.
