Re: Oil Filter Assembly - Plastic parts broken (2011 GC 3.6L)

I have maxcare from Jeep and was curious if anyone knows if (when this happens) maxcare covers this repair.

Also, do you have a picture of the screw design in place?

Thanks.

Re: First Oil Change Complete

Also look at the F106S (vs the F106N).

Finally, get the new plastic lever safety clip that compliments the Fumoto valve; peace of mind.

Re: Low Mileage Service Requirements

Coolant is 5 years or 100,000 miles ... so, he is due.

As the other posted stated, replacing the brake fluid at 5 years would also be a good idea.

The 2012 V6 oil filter torque is 25Nm or 18 foot pounds, so you over-tightened it.
