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.
