Hi Josh,

Could you post a pic, with the two, side by side?

Thanks,

Oh yea definitely under warranty, just don't have the time to bring it to the dealer. Just wondering if it reads ok is it right or wrong, under or over the correct level?

if it's over the full line with the AA dipstick it's more than likely good.

If it's right at full it's 1/2 to quart low.

i'll do a side by side picture tomorrow.

Yea mine is right at the full line. I ordered the part through my uncles body shop Thursday I should have it Tues, it was on some kind of back order. Thanks for the reply I'll do a comparison once I get the new stick.

Re: 6.4's have the wrong dipstick!

Thanks for posting this, I had no issues with the dealer ordering and installing a new dipstick after I showed them the TSB. No I didn't take it in just to get the dipstick installed, they were also doing a flash and replacing the driver seat lumbar switch.

Re: 6.4's have the wrong dipstick!

Sorry to revive an old thread, Did anyone ever get a side by side pic? I ask because I have a dipstick from my 2012 we traded in (really NO IDEA how or why I ended up with a left over dipstick, weird...)

I thought since this TSB only applied to 2015 models that I might could use the one from the 2012.

The one from the 2012 has the exact same part number (AA) as the one in the 2015. Again, wasn't too surprised, thought if the laser etching was messed up during 2015 production that they likely changed the part number to AB to make it easier to identify but that I would probably be ok with an AA from before this snafu...

BUT turns out that both the one from my 2012 and the one from the 2015 are identical, all etching in the exact same spot.

SO either A. My 2015 "AA" stick is from before the laser etching mistake started, OR, they actually made a change in the dipstick channel into the engine.

I already have 2 dipsticks, I hate to buy another one and it come in exactly like the two I already have so really hoping someone can either grab a picture of the two side by side OR measure from tip to top of full on the AB stick please?

tip to tip AA is marked with SAFE on top

AB is below it with just cross hatched area.

Re: 6.4's have the wrong dipstick!

Awesome, thanks!!!!

Yep, Looks like I need the AB... My AA has the markings in the same place. There goes my theory that only SOME of the AA versions were mis-marked.

Still very strange that this bulletin only applies to the 2015 even though I have an AA from a 2012 model and the markings are in the same place. AND the AB is listed as correct for all WK2 SRTs...

If the AB is correct for all models then why not a bulletin for 12 - 14s? Oh well, with the overlap between the two safe areas, I have been fine anyway. I'll still go ahead and grab the new one just in case.

Thanks again!

I have a 2014 6.4. I too, had the AA dipstick. I did my own oil change last year for the first time. When I refilled, I noticed 6 quarts "filled" it instead of 7 quarts.

I mentioned this on this forum last year and was advised to check the dipstick TSB. I did so and told my dealer. They replaced it with the AB for free as it was still under warrantee.

So to answer your question, based on my experience, we've been running on 6 quarts with the AA dipstick. The only sure-fire way to know is to drain and refill it yourself.
