Re: FIRST Oil Change

Royal Purple or Mobil 1 are the only olis that i will use. Unless for some reason it goes above $10 a qt. And yes ive noticed that it runs smoother with either one.

ME -->
dealers all use mobile 1 oil & filter changed 15X over 42 months / 11776klm.7281miles

Re: FIRST Oil Change

Haven't did the oil change on my Jeep myself yet...... my 1st change was on the dealerships dime at 1800 miles. At 7800 miles (3K miles to go) I'll be upgrading to Mobil One 5w-20. I used Mobil One in my last Jeep for about 90K miles and never had a problem with it and I'm also using Mobil One in my Camaro and she runs great.

I never did my own oil changes on my Lincoln because I thought it was too low to the ground for me to slide under it even with the car lifted until I did it on my SS.

Re: FIRST Oil Change

Amen, Robert Palmer!! Chaoul1, if you're running anything heavier than 5W-20 in your Hemi, your MDS is probably not working as it was designed. (Since this is an old thread, I am sure you've discovered this by now.) The correct oil weight is indicated on the top of the oil filler cap. It's well known to most 5.7 Hemi owners that incorrect weight oil adversely affects the MDS operation. Many dealers, unless told otherwise, will put bulk 10W-30 or 10W-40 in the Hemi's. Some know it's wrong, others don't. Besides it'll bring them more $$$ when you go in and complain about poor gas mileage or the MDS not working properly. When I bought mine, the stupid dealer was proud to announce that they had done me a "favor" and changed the oil. Right on the service slip it said, 10W-30. I also have a Hemi LX, so I know how the MDS is suppose to work. The WK didn't work anything like the LX and only seldom came on. I immediately changed the oil and installed my MDS "ON" light. Now it works correctly and I can see when it's on with the light. I also use 5W-20 Mobil 1 oil and filter, and change it at 6000 mile intervals. Get a Fumoto drain valve and do it yourself. That way you know it is done correctly. If you must take it somewhere, make sure you watch them put the correct oil in. Also, get a catch can...another big help, IMO.

1) Oil type used (Brand, consistency, price)
2) Length b/t oil changes
3) Experience/testimonials

Also, should I have the oil change performed at the dealer? Any benefit? What does everyone typically do for their oil change...if you do not use the Dealer please provide insight/rationale.
1. First oil changes (until 3/36 warranty expiration) were by dealer with 5W-20 dino oil & MOPAR oil filter. Now I use 5W-20 Castrol Syntec full synthetic (or Mobil-1, whichever is on sale) and K&N HP-2010 oil filter. WalMart has 5-qt jug of 5W-20 for $25.00 and K&N is ~$14.00. Just caught AdvanceAuto sale of both for $26.88 (until 9/1/10).
2. Always plan on 5,000 miles, but occasionally, it approaches 6,000 miles.
3. Installing Fumoto oil drain valve this coming weekend during the 51,500 miles oil/filter change. When I perform the service, I know what comes out, what goes in, and how it was done. No surprises or problems later because a trainee was having a bad, un-supervised day.
The 5.7L HEMI MDS operation requires 5W-20 oil to function correctly and the "HEMI tick" has all-but-disappeared with full synthetic engine lube oil. Some reports from owners that not everyone in the oil-change business has learned this lesson.

First of all, What?

And second, are you saying you had your oil changed 15 times in 12,000KMs?
