So ive done my oil change twice and both times put in 7.6qt with new mobil 1 filter to get to full mark on dipstick, just fyi as manual says 7qt to full... Never had a car need more than spec to get to full before, hope this helps someone...
I also had to put that much oil in the hemi.So ive done my oil change twice and both times put in 7.6qt with new mobil 1 filter to get to full mark on dipstick, just fyi as manual says 7qt to full... Never had a car need more than spec to get to full before, hope this helps someone...
7 quarts is right at the add line. And then it dipped below the add line. I'm doing my own oil changes from now on. I put almost 7 1/2 quarts of Mobil 1 full synthetic in and it brought the level up to 2/3rds above the add line into the cross hatch area of the dipstick which makes me comfortable with it. I was able to purchase 3 5-quart bottles and 2 Mopar filters from Walmart for a total of $94.43 including tax. That's only $47 per oil change for quality full synthetic and a Mopar filter and gets me an extra quart of oil to put that extra half in and have extra if it gets low before the next change, and have 7 1/2 quarts for the next oil change. Had to get a new engine oil drain plug, the one on there didn't fit any of my sockets and had to use a vice grip to crank it off.
It may be for political reasons but still technically, No.Is Mobil 1 Chrysler compliant now?
I know that a lot has been written about the superiority of synthetic oil. I'm not in a position to dispute it.So this engine is running on conventional oil. My 06' 300C 5.7L had always been synthetic. I've read numerous arguments on varying forums about the syn vs. conv oils. SO if the manufacturer suggests conventional now... Why spend more on synthetic oil? Why is it conventional now?
We also have the Unlimited Mileage/Time Warranty.
Yep. It costs less, they recommend it and our warranty is unlimited. Saving money will win this decision. The manual says 6 months /5k not to exceeed 8k at anytime. That's pretty good for the terrible conventional oil.I know that a lot has been written about the superiority of synthetic oil. I'm not in a position to dispute it.
But, if the car manufacturers specify dino oil, that's what I use. My MDX said that you may use synthetic, but that using it should not extend the change interval.
I know it is sometimes an emotional subject with most, not all, basing their decision on what they read and sometimes perceived benefits.
Here is my 'guess'. When synthetics first came out they were a good idea, and they have continued to improve. At the same time, oil refining and additives, plus engine manufacturing has improved. At this point in time, conventional oil provides 100% of the protection and lubrication that an engine can benefit from. So while synthetic may look better on paper (and in all the ads) it is over kill.
Remember two things ...
1- I said this was my guess
2- Many people swear their low compression engines run so much better on premium fuel.
Use what makes you feel good. Your car won't care.
