TSB 18-018-14 Rev. B. I had it done and now my OLM seems to be calculating correctly so far.

Re: First oil change some info and comments

Is there a list of TSBs that need to be updated or does the latest one embody all of the changes out there?

Re: First oil change some info and comments

I like doing the oil change myself...even if the price is comparable I figure the time to go there and back and usually wait for them to get started and then hang around is worth it. And I just like the satisfaction of doing it myself..

It looks like there is a price increase buying the filters online from dealers.

Back some posts I mentioned I got some for $27 online after I had paid $41 at the dealer's parts counter for my first one, but now it's $40.32 online. I should have stocked up at $27..

Also when I enter part number 68109834AA, it comes up as "New Part Number: 68229402AA"


Does anyone know if the part number has indeed changed?

Re: First oil change some info and comments

Some sites show 68229402A replacing 68109834AA but all sites show 68109834AA for the 3.0 Diesel motor. Either way, it does appear they will both fit our motor. Fortunately, I bought my 68109834AA's for $28.75 each.

$30 from Mopar Parts Overstock for 68109834AA (Factory Mopar Parts has it for $40+).

$40 from Mopar Parts Online for 68229402AA (notes its for the Ram 1500 diesel)

So maybe the Ram has a different part # (same engine though).

Re: First oil change some info and comments

Wow, tons of input on here around oil changes, oil to use, dealerships, etc. I would change my oil on my other vehicle most times (Tacoma) yet have never on a diesel. From what I am reading, pretty straight forward. Probably go with the Mobil 1 ESP 5w30 since I used Mobil on the other vehicle. Just still on the fence as to when I should do it...before the oil quality indicator says to, or sooner. Will also see what the dealership would charge for a full change with synthetic; hope the dealership from my city is n to like some of the horror stories I read earlier in this thread! YIKES. It may have been answered in this thread already, but what is put in from factory for oil??

Re: First oil change some info and comments

Having owned Mercedes diesels for years; you can buy Mobil 1 ESP at your local Mercedes Benz dealer. My dealer has a great price at 8.56$ a quart so I have found that this is the easiest place to locate the proper oil for our Jeep diesels. My first oil change was at 9560 miles where I had 4% oil left left. I had to fill DEF at 5500 miles as I was down to 25% level. My DEF seems to be burning fast. I have yet to see a Regen message yet but I mainly only do long highway drives on a regular basis. My first oil change was at the dealer and checking the oil a day later it seems slightly overfilled. Will take back for them to lower the oil level.

Re: First oil change some info and comments

The dealer did my first will change, but incorrect. They did not allow it to drain long enough and only put in 6 quarts, The"changed" oil was dark and overfilled. I had them redo it the next day, new filter included. From now on, I will perform my own changes.

EcoDiesel owners should NEVER use express lube lanes of any brand and I would always wait if done at the dealer. If the truck is ready in less than an hour, they probably did it incorrectly.

Any owner of a diesel or high performance car (or really anyone who really who cares for their vehicle) should NEVER use express lube job places for their vehicles. These guys are usually minimum wage and will get a bonus if they get a minimum number of cars through.

So observing them once (and never again) - they do not follow any OEM recommended oil drain procedures but the quick lube get 'em through quickly and insurance will take care of the problems. So they buzz off the drain bolt (not really caring the proper bolt size), let it drain and usually don't wait until it comes to a drip, they buzz back on the bolt without replacing or even flipping over the crush washer way over OEM torque specs (i.e. stripping the oil pan threads), they rip off the filter and wrench the old one back on often not adding oil to the seals or cleaning off the surface on the engine then overtighten it, then they put in bulk oil from the barrel (which normally is a mix of oils unless you buy the expensive stuff) and they normally won't put in user provided oil as well.

Go to the dealer and pay a little more. Call other dealers and ask for price. Dealers also will use the oil / filter you bring as well so long as it's OEM spec oil and OEM brand filter (no they won't put on a Fram).

It's just amazing how oil changed shops can screw up what is dog gone near the only task they have to perform all day, every day. The sad part is that its so easy, especially with the equipment they have. I always do it myself.

I changed my oil (diesel) but I can't reset the oil indicator. I did as posted and in the service manual but it stays on 5%. Any words of wisdom?
