Yes, and furthermore you'll freak out when you see that the factory fill OAT is red whereas the compatible service part OAT is purple.

EDIT: see here

So... In order to be very clear on this, because this 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee is the first vehicle I've ever owned that didn't take the yellow green colored standard Prestone......

The red / orange color antifreeze that my vehicle was delivered with can accept the compatible "purple" colored fluid without contaminating anything??? And if so, is this product only delivered in a "ready to add" state, mixed 50/50 with water...... Or can you buy it full strength and mix it yourself?

If you look at the standard Prestone green / yellow antifreeze, it can be had in both pre mix, as well as full strength. It's really silly to buy it pre mixed, because it's only a couple of dollars less than the full strength.

And while we're on the subject of coolant. Has anyone done, or looked into what's involved in doing a cooling system flush on the 2015 JGC HEMI's? This always has been something I did myself. I would like to continue to do it, if it's not overly complicated. And I would NEVER go 10 years before doing it. I've always drained and flushed my cooling system every 2 years. I'm still running my original heater core in my 1991 Ford F-150. And I'm only on the second radiator. And that one has been in the truck for the last 19 years, and is still going strong. I believe that frequent coolant flushes are the reason why.

Bill, 68163848AA for the undiluted OAT (2014+) and 68163849AA for the Prediluted 50/50 OAT (2014+) yes from cost standpoint is cheaper to buy the undiluted just make sure to use distilled water with it.

Re: Great Deals on Grand Cherokee Fluids

I just purchased Mobil 1 05W20 extended service Synthetic for $25.47 on Amazon Prime. Delivered to my door free in 36 hours. Not as cheap as WallyWorld, but a heck of a lot more convenient.

I'm curious what other DIY'ers are paying for 5.7 Hemi OEM oil filters. I purchased 2 from my dealership 10/16/14 for $8.35 each.

Yesterday I went back to the same Stealership and they charged almost double that, $15.99 each for the exact same filters.
That will be the last time I visit the parts department at Ourisman Chrysler-Jeep-Dodge.

I pay $10.15 with no tax and free shipping, for these K&N Oil Filters with the hex nut welded on the bottom. I buy 6 at a time to get over the $49.00 minimum required to qualify for the free shipping. Considering how much I drive, they'll last me a long time.

I really like the nut welded on the end because it makes both removal and installation nice and easy. You don't have a lot of oil filter access with the 5.7 HEMI in the Grand Cherokee, (2015). Both the filter and drain plug is only accessible up through a square hole cut out from the bottom member of the vehicle. It's way up in there, and it's very difficult to get a strap type oil filter wrench around it, and still have any kind of leverage or room to turn the wrench. That, along with the fact there is a cast metal protective lip that interferes with the strap wrench as well. Having the nut on the end allows you to bypass all of those issues. I don't care for the cap type wrenches that engage the ribs on the end of the filter.

Granted these filters are not the cheapest. But they make the whole job easier to accomplish without making a mess, and getting oil all over everything including yourself. (A LOT of oil drains out of both the filter, and the ports once you loosen it). That along with the fact they're delivered right to my door.

Thanks silver,

I bought oil and one filter (Fram) from Walmart two years back. Paid Wally 50 cents more than the Stealership for the filter at that time.

Do you know if they also sell Engine Air and Cabin Air filters? I'm due to change those in 1K miles, as well as differential/transfer fluids.

I'll be sure to go in Walmart next time I am in the area on a weekday, midday

Re: Great Deals on Grand Cherokee Fluids

billt,

I can hand remove any spin-on which I have installed, so the hex is not so important to me. Thanks for the tip though.

I was disappointed that I was unable to use my new pump extractor on the Hemi. Tubes get stopped before reaching the pan.
