I have always used a premium fully synthetic, and just need to know if I should continue? Viscosity is obvious, but any help out there if someone has the time. Cheers, and again great to meet you all!
P.S as the OZ Loredo's seem to be much more highly spec'd than the American brother.
I don't know if you can go to the For Owners section at Jeep SUVs & Crossovers | Official Jeep Site | Jeep
and get a hard copy of the Owners Manual, being on the wrong side of the equator... it is worth a try as it is handy.
The 3.6 uses SAE 5W-20, as does the Hemi. This should be on the filler cap.
You can use synth or synth blend. Neither comes with it and neither needs it, but
some of us do it anyway out of love.
"We recommend you use API Certified SAE 5W-20 Engine Oil, meeting the
requirements of Chrysler Material Standard MS-6395. Refer to your engine
oil filler cap for correct SAE grade."
IIRC Mopar is using Pennzoil as factory fill or dealer. They stock Pennzoil Platinum here for folks willing to spend the few extra bucks for full synth upgrades/swaps.
Yes, I know it is not needed. But then neither are flowers for your missus.
