Ha ha, that's your first mistake.
The oil filler cap on mine says "0w40".

Re: Oil Change

FWIW, I had mine changed and requested Mobil 1 synthetic 0-40w. My oil cap says "0-40" as well so that's what I'm putting in there until SRT releases a statement to owners and dealers saying otherwise.

I know my dealer said it was OK to use Pennzoil 5-40w synthetic, but I didn't want to take chances. Those early builds had rumors of engines getting the incorrect oil filled at the assembly. Was it 5-40w?

This is taken from the WK2 Jeeps maintenance website for the ...
6.4. V8 MDS Hemi 7 qts. (w/filter)
0W-40 (6.4 V8 Hemi)


I even wrote to Chrysler for clarification but haven't received a response. I'll give that new SRT member telephone number a try at some point to find out the deal.

Re: Oil Change

All 2012 SRT's require full Synthetic 0W-40 oil. The Brand of oil is NOT specified

Re: Oil Change

I very rarely trust dealerships to touch my vehicles so I always change my own oil in my vehicles, just a personal preference, just make sure to keep all receipts and document it as Chrysler is getting picky about any warranty work if they haven't done the servicing, $8 a quart for Mobil 1 0w-40 x 7 quarts, $12-15 for a good filter, motor being happy = Priceless on a side note be lucky it isn't 0w-50 as that stuff runs $16 a quart

Anyone know the oil code? Oil 5W40 #5127394PB was on my invoice.
you were not given the correct oil. no way they charge $36 for 7qts of synthetic and a filter plus labor

Re: Oil Change

does anyone have part numbers for the Pennzoil Ultra SAE 0W-40? Also part number for the oil filter? Ive been looking for the Pennzoil without any luck. My stealership also wants to charge me like $10.99 qt on the mobile 1 0-w40, what a crock!

Re: Oil Change

The maintenance schedule in the owners manual requires the engine oil to be changed every 6 months. Isn't that a bit excessive?

Re: Oil Change

I just had my second oil change done at 6000 miles. Seemed early since my last one was at 2800 miles. I drive 60-40 city to hwy and the dealer told me that is why the oil change message came on. He said its based on engine hours more than miles. This time it cost me $90. I guess I can't complain, simple maintenance is better than breaking down.

Re: Oil Change

My oil change reminder came on at 2480 miles. Got 2 years worth of free oil changes with mine, guess that's worth a couple of hundred bucks. I'm going to make sure my dealership has 0w-40 before I take it in just to make sure they're not going to try to subsitute something else.
