Re: Blackstone Oil Analysis Report on Factory Fill Oil 2014 Pentastar V6 with 6000 Mi

Thanks for sharing.

I did the first oil change on my '14 just before 7000 miles. The oil life monitor said around 25% left. It was looking like it would go 10,000 and it seemed to drop 10% every 1000 miles.

I had some TSBs done at the first oil change, and now the oil life monitor is dropping fast.

At 4,000 miles since the last oil change the monitor say 6% life left. I know the manual says it can be between 3500 and 10,000 miles, but such a drastic change without a change in driving style seems strange.

I wonder if Chrysler updated the algorithm in one of the TSB updates.

Anyone else notice this?

I had all updates done before oil change and it still targeted 10K.

I think some service folks accidently reset something.

I'd wait for a "Clean" (no service work) run and see what it says.

I pretty much plan to ignore the monitor.

Good results as expected. Still glad I switched to full synthetic at 1,000 miles. Thanks for posting the results.
