Yes, but Ford 302-5.0 use FL-1A, still do... Isn't unusual to see one change, but it looks like three in as many years.

I wasn't saying we should stay in Flintstones mobiles you asshats but to change the filter 3 times in like 5-6 years is a little ridiculous.









And yes I could do with less catalytic converters.

Interested in this as well. Could someone with this new setup let us know if that initial clatter is there on startup with the 2014s?

This is one change.

The entire engine changed for 2012, 2013 was the same, then 2014 gets a new filter. The Pentastar was in use for a couple of years before showing up in the Wrangler, too.

I have recently picked up a 14 grand Cherokee with the 3.6 replacing my 02 liberty. Went to the dealer for the first oil change as I was getting a blue screen on the reverse camera. Went to change the oil again on Sunday, went to two part stores both didn't have anything in stock he said dealer only. I was close to telling him just give me the one for 13 glad I didn't! I will be running to the dealer today to pick the correct one up I guess.

2014 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon ... 1st Oil Change...

Well, my first mistake, I took my 2014 Jeep rubicon to Jiffy Lube for her first Oil change. Sure enough, had a problem already with jiffy lube..
Upon competing my first basic oil change my oil light stayed on. Of course wanted it corrected. The service guy called over his MGR, MGR says .. No worries!
Changed the oil to the synthetic blend....
It didn't sit right with me....
So I go on line and found Jeep Forum....
Someone had the same issue but it was do to the oil filter...
I mentioned it to the service guy...
He put back the old one,, light stayed off))
But I asked him why they put a 2013 oil filter in a 2014 jeep...
He said, that's all they had!!!
AMAZING.!!!!!
NEVER AGAIN...
GOOD BYE JIFFY LUBE.
Thanks Jeep Forum

A couple years ago a friend took his car there. By the time he got the three mikes back home, his car was smoking. Lucky it didn't burn to the ground. Apparently, one guy filled the oil thinking the other guy drained it. Nothing like 10 quarts to keep things moving!

This. I even got the "maintenance for life" from my Jeep dealer, but after they tried to tell me a third party stripped my oil drain plug, I've been doing it myself. Fact is, THEY stripped the plug because I've never taken it anywhere else.

Back fifteen or so years ago Jiffy. Lube got to buy my dad a new rear end for his f150, they didn't tighten the drain plug, lost oil, locked up the axle.
