I think next time I'll try to find the official Mopar one, haven't gotten to 12k yet on mine.

The NAPA filters are available now, 7073, same as WIX 57073. I had the local store get one for me from the warehouse, next day service. Chrysler still uses the recommended oil change s as stated in the maintenance schedules, regardless of what oil you are using.

Oil change.....................

So my g/f has the 2.4L Patriot sport and I'm planning on an oil change. how many quarts does the engine take "WITH" changing the filter ???

i asked her to check her manual, but i'm not too sure she'll look in the right place. I want to buy the oil and filter ahead of time.

thanks

An interesting thread. I never knew an oil change could be so complicated. I have used the 5000 mile oil change interval on all of my vehicles regardless of brand and engine for the past 45 years. I have never had an engine problem with any of them including those that ended up with over a 100K miles on them when I traded them off. I have always used a good quality oil and oil filter in all my vehicles and I guess that really works.

replying to a post found on page 3-5

i change my oil every 3K miles or 3 months, even when my camaro sits over winter. it gets started and possibly driven here and there. so even with a mobil 1 oil change, if it is 3 months later and it has 200 miles on it,
it is getting changed

changing the oil in my g/f's patriot tonight,
her filter is like a mini wrangler filter

that manufacturer installed filter was a MF'er

but the 1st oil change went well. 5w-20 mobil 1 and a mopar filter.

manual states 4.5 qts with a filter change,
but this thread states 5

not to mention is seemed like only 3-4 came out. no leaks, weird ??

I haven't changed my own oil yet. My first oil change was in Albuquerque and when asked they said that it took a full 5 qts.

That is strange. Did you check to see if was low before the drain? I only added the oil cooler recently and it could add a cup or too also. It may be best to add 4.5 qts and check it before adding the rest.

Oil Reminder Light and Change Intervals

My '08 Patriot 4x2 manual says that 6K miles are fine for oil changes and that sounds good to me. I use 7,500 miles between changes for my '01 Ram 2500 Diesel and it has 165,000 miles on it with no problems.

The manual says that there is an Oil Reminder message after a certain number of cycles. Does anyone know what that number is? My '05 Honda Odyssey had an oil remaining percentage on it and I assume it worked on the same prinicple of engine cycles.

Question:

why do so many of you use something 'other' than the OEM Mopar Oil Filter? Price? Availability? Doesn't come in the right color?

just curious....i've ALWAYS used factory filters, regardless if it were a Mopar, Toyota, Honda, Gm or Ford....
