6.4's have the wrong dipstick!

For ever my dealer has been over filling my SRT oil ever since i've gotten it.

Turns out the Dipstick has been the entire problem.

The dip stick writing is too low on the stick at 7 Qt's it will read a Full quart or more over the full line.

I told the dealer about it and all they offered to do for me was give me a 10% discount on the new Dipstick and had to be ordered.

I know the TSB mentions 2015 SRT's

But I have the SAME Part # on my 2012 SRT 05038472AA Is the Wrong Dipstick.

The Proper part number is 05038472AB

Just a PSA Check your Dipstick after an Oil change I bet it shows Over Full after 7 Quarts!

Re: 6.4's have the wrong dipstick!

We just got a TSB also for this on the 5.7s except ours read under filed by 1 quart when we put in 7 quarts lol, makes me laugh they cant get something as simple as a dip stick correct

there was a guy on here the other day saying something about the oil level being incorrect on the 3.2 Cherokees maybe they are next for a new dip stick and the same fool designed those dip sticks also

That is so pathetic I had the same issue with my 5.7. The fact that they want us to pay for their mistake makes it even worse. I've spent extra money on oil just to over fill my engine. Clearly they were just hiding the problem I brought up the issue to my dealer after every oil change and they acted like I had 2 heads. Never again!

Re: 6.4's have the wrong dipstick!

Silly question...but how do you know if you're eligible for the brake rotor recall? Haven't had any issues with mine but if I can get a new set I certainly will lol.

I have a 14 and my dipstick is off as well.

Re: 6.4's have the wrong dipstick!

the rotor recall is for my 2012-2015 SRT only and if you have a brake squeal or squeak they will replace them... it doesn't squeal all the time so it says to replace them on the tsb. the new ones have small groves near the hub

It's a tsb not a recall.

They will not do this for free if your out of factory warranty. Or changed rotors from factory.

Has to be in the 3/36k period

I have 62k on my srt and was charged for the dipstick.
