Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Just add water. Never ever mix coolant as it turns to a sludgy mess. Only get the OEM Coolant or change and flush completely if changing brand. And then, it has to be the correct type.

Re: Any high mileage diesels out there? How many miles do you have?

MY 12. Engine is basically the same as the 2014, although you guys in the US have a different emission system as we just have the DPF.

Re: MS11106 - Attached

Hello Top from Texas


Some of those oils are pretty hard to come by in Australia. Not impossible, just difficult. Mobil 1 ESP can be had quite easily though.

Why should the Jeep be any different to a normal vehicle? Just skin the rotors and bang in some new pads, provided that the rotor thickness is in spec after machining.

Hi Mark

Just email Statewide Oil for a price.

I am pretty sure that GL lubricants is a "Grey" importer, which maybe important to you, or not.
