Diesel Oil Change Kit

I know there are a hand full of threads talking about 229.51 spec oil for the 3.0 but had anyone head much about using Total Quartz MC3 oil or even a kit: http://www.idparts.com/catalog/produ...ducts_id=3049?

Going to start changing my own oil in a 2007 and I am always looking for a deal.

not a bad buy for the right oil. There were some guys that tried the Mann oil filter and it started leaking after about 1000kms. Do a search in this forum on the topic. Turned out that Mann was shipping a thinner o-ring. Perhaps they've fixed the problem now, but personally, I use the Mopar (Mercedes) fuel/oil filters on my CRD. To expensive of an engine to take a chance. Maybe you could re-use the old o-rings.

Are you sure it was the Mann, not the Framm filters? I have used the Mann HU821X for quite some time with no leaks

Watch the oil prices at NAPA. They have a sale every year. Oil is Valvoline 5W-40 and is 229.51 spec. The oil filter you can get at advanced auto. Worked out to be about $60 an oil change. The oil was about $4.99 a quart.

Yep, DPF delete would be nice way to return to biodiesel blends >5% and allow high SAP oils which have higher TBNs and stronger additive packages in my opinion.

Thanks for the oil info, I just bought a kit and saved a small fortune over what I've been paying at Pep Boys.

Haven't had much luck with NAPA on oil.

no, in these threads the problem was Mann and WIX.

https://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f67/2...-leak-1086627/

the problems occurred 2 years ago, so perhaps the newer Mann and WIX filters are ok.

I have used the WIX oil filter since I have started doing my own oil changes(4+ years) never had an issue with leaks, maybe it was 1 bad batch that I happened to miss.

What are the other OILs that can be used with the DPF delete?

229.5 can be used is there any others? or just the wider array of 229.5 oils?

According to Mercedes...the OM642 w/o a DPF can use the following oils:
http://bevo.mercedes-benz.com/d/d/en/Spec_223_2.pdf

Mercedes Specs:
228.3
228.5
228.51
229.3
229.31
229.5
229.51
229.52

Generally the "1" indicates a low ash oil for vehicles equipped with a DPF.

I am going to go with the 0W40 Mobil 1 initially and see what happens....

229.5 oils:

Mobil 1 0W40 Synthetic (You can get this at WalMart)
http://matrixsyntheticoils.com/store..._supersyn.html
MOBIL 1 0W-40 CAN BE USED AS BOTH a RACING OR STREET OIL.
Mobil 1 0W-40 synthetic motor oil is an all-purpose, all-weather motor oil with a great reputation. There are many used oil analyses (UOAs) that have been posted and discussed on the “Bob is the Oil Guy” internet forum. This oil has posted many excellent high mileage UOAs. For those people who own vehicles that require a 40 weight oil, Mobil 1 0w-40 should be placed at the top of their list. This Highly versatile and Fully Synthetic oil is Highly Recommended."

Data Sheet

http://www.mobil.com/USA-English/Lub...l_1_0W-40.aspx

Amsoil 5W40 Euro Car Synthetic meets 229.3 and 229.5
http://www.amsoil.com/shop/by-produc...motor-oil-efm/





Common truck oils that make the cut just barely....
Shell Rotella Full Synthetic (228.31)
Mobil Delvac Full Synthetic 5W40 (228.31)

Man do yourself a favor when changing your oil and install a Fumoto quick change valve.
