I'm not sure if my 3.0 CRD has a particulate filter. Apparently it makes a difference to the oil grade. Where is it ? What does it look like externally ?
yes your CRD came with a DPF if it was originally sold in the US. It's a bulge in the exhaust, just in front of the flex-hose section, about where the fron passenger seat is. It's after the catalytic converter.
If you want to make sure, here is where it's located and what it looks like on my U.S. spec WK (our passenger side):
2007 Grand Cherokee Limited | QDII | 3.0L Diesel | S4xC Shackles Mounts | Goodyear Duratracs
Bilstein HD Front/Rear | Rusty's 1/2" Strut Spacer | Hemi XK Front/Rear Coils | HID Projectors
Post a photo of the area.
2008 WK "S" Limited bright metallic silver exterior, light graystone interior, 5 speed W5J400 transmission, June 18/2008 build, C213RE rear differential with 3.73 axle ratio, C200FE front differential with 3.73 axle ratio, 245/60R18 Goodyear Fortera tires (stock summer tires), NV245 transfer case, GT2056V turbo, 3.0L CRD (OM642.980)

It doesn't have any fuel pipes going to it but there's a connector I reckon is the lambda near the top. It's all squinting and feeling because as you'll appreciate in that location it's a tight fit and surrounded by all sorts.
More to the point there's absolutely nothing resembling the photo underneath my car.
Don't forget our emission regs are or at least were quite a lot different to yours in the states.
