2014 jk oil pressure light on

3400 miles decided to change the oil on my jk today. Valvoline 5w30 synthetic and now my oil pressure light comes on at idle. It's fluctuating between 0 and 4 psi. Any ideas?

Did you install the proper oil filter for your year, 2014?

I haven't had the opportunity to see a new oil filter system, but from what I understand they use a cartridge now. I would suspect that something is wrong in this area.

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, how do you have time to do it over.

Update. My jk does not like the wix filter or the guy at oreilly gave me the wrong one. I installed the factory one back in and no problems. The wix filter he gave me was part number 57526

There is a thread from just the other day from JeepCares that let us know that the oil filters for the 3.6 (2012 and up) are different for each year. I‘ll find that thread and post here in a few.

Because of that all JK owners from 2012 on up need to double check to see that we have purchased the correct oil filter and not to rely on what the parts guy gives us.


EDIT: Here's that info.

Using a 2013 filter on 2014 model engines will create an oil leak situation.

2014 - 68191349AA - Filter Kit = Filter and Cap O-ring

2013 is 68079744AB - Filter Kit = Filter and Cap O-ring

The below 2014 engines will also use the 2014 filter 68191349AA - Filter Kit = Filter and Cap O-ring

2014 – 3.6L, DS DX JC JF JK JS J3 LC LD LX RM RT VF WD WK W6

2014 – 3.2L, KL K2

2014 – 3.0L, JK LX WK (BUX)

Awesome thanks for the info. Wish I would have known that before because he did give me the 2013 oil filter because their computers did not have part numbers for the 2014s yet.

We can all be thankful for the info from JeepCares. Up until his post I didnít have a clue either and might have run into the same problem with my Jeep too.

Kinda scary the auto parts store does not have 2014 part numbers and they are thinking the 2013s are interchangeable.

I would have thought the same thing and never given it a second thought.

How long did you let it run like this?

What a nightmare. I've gotten a few incorrect parts from dealers, I don't trust dealer parts counters let alone regular autoparts stores.

What is the change in the newer filters? I mean the difference between the '13 and '14. Is it obvious to your eye?

WOW good info. I just got a new 2013 3.6 jeep. I will have to watch this. I have 2 years of oil changes with it so that's a dlr issue for now.
Why do they run 5w20 oil?
I have always had 10w40 or 5w30 but never 5w20...

Anyone running synthetic? I run mobile 1 in all my GM cars, vettes and trucks etc.
Wondering if I should keep with the dealer oil changes or just do my own an swap it out for synthetic mobile 1

my theory on synthetic is, if you run long and hard and go many miles between changes (5-10,000 or so), go synthetic. If you follow the Jeep oil change of 3-6000 miles depending on usage, I'm staying dyno oil.

go on the balckstone website they have a good explanation on viscosity, which basically is, you can use any viscosity, but mileage may suffer, upper end may suffer, or lower end may suffer. best to use what the engineers designed the motor for. on high mileage vehicles, I will push into the 5-40's or 5-50's.
