*Note for the 6.1L engine: The oil change specification requires 7 quarts of oil when altering the oil and filter. Some homeowners have reported a slight to average overfill studying on the dipstick when putting in a full 7 quarts. The 6.1L engine drains the oil slower than different engines. Drain the outdated warmed oil for at the very least 20 minutes to get as a lot out as attainable. We counsel including round 6-1/2 quarts, run the engine for a couple of minutes, shut it down and let sit for awhile, then fill as neccessary to deliver the studying to the secure space on the dipstick. The high of the secure space signify the right “full” degree. Note that including a full 7 quarts (with filter change) won’t ever overfill the engine to such an extent that any oil foaming or hurt will outcome, even when the extent is past the “secure” studying on the dipstick.

Transmissions (automated)


  • ATF+4 MUST all the time be utilized in autos that have been initially stuffed with ATF+4.
  • ATF+4 is suitable with ATF+3 and can be utilized to high off autos that at present have ATF+2 or ATF+3.
  • DO NOT use ATF+2 or ATF+3 to high off autos which have ATF+4® fluid

FLUID ADDITIVES:DaimlerChrysler strongly recommends in opposition to the addition of any fluids to the transmission, aside from these automated transmission fluids listed above. Exceptions to this coverage are the usage of particular dyes to assist in detecting fluid leaks. Various “particular” components and dietary supplements exist that declare to enhance shift really feel and/or high quality. These components and others additionally declare to enhance converter clutch operation and inhibit overheating, oxidation, varnish, and sludge. These claims haven’t been supported to the satisfaction of DaimlerChrysler and these components should not be used. The use of transmission “sealers” also needs to be prevented, since they could adversely have an effect on the integrity of transmission seals.

FILTER SEAL CAUTION (545RFE):The major oil filter seal MUST be totally put in flush in opposition to the oil pump physique. DO NOT set up the seal onto the filter neck and try to put in the filter and seal as an meeting. Damage to the transmission will outcome. Install the brand new major oil filter seal within the oil pump inlet bore. Seat the seal within the bore with the butt finish of a hammer, or different appropriate instrument. Place substitute filter in place on valve physique and into the oil pump. Install screw to carry filter to valve physique. Tighten screw to 40 in. lbs. torque.
If geared up with a dipstick, use the next process. If your automobile has a capped dipstick tube, it’s sealed and shouldn’t be tampered with. Your licensed seller has the right instruments to make sure that the fluid degree is about correctly.Check the fluid degree whereas the transmission is at regular working temperature. This happens after at the very least 15 miles (25 km) of driving. At regular working temperature the fluid can’t be held comfortably between the fingertips.To examine the automated transmission fluid degree correctly, the next process should be used:1. Operate the engine at idle velocity and regular working temperature.
2. The automobile should be on degree floor.
3. Fully apply the parking brake and press the brake pedal.
4. Place the gear selector momentarily in every gear place ending with the lever in P (Park).
5. Remove the dipstick, wipe it clear and reinsert it till seated.
6. Remove the dipstick once more and observe the fluid degree on each side. The fluid degree ought to he between the “HOT” (higher) reference holes on the dipstick at regular working temperature. The fluid degree is barely legitimate if there’s a strong coating of oil is seen on each side of the dipstick. If the fluid is low, add as required into the dipstick tube. Do not overfill. After including any amount of oil via the oil fill tube, wait a minimal of two (2) minutes for the oil to completely drain into the transmission earlier than rechecking the fluid degree.NOTE:
If it’s essential to examine the transmission under the working temperature, the fluid degree must be between the 2 COLD (decrease) holes on the dipstick with the fluid at roughly 70 F (21 C) (room temperature). If the fluid degree is accurately established at room temperature, it must be between the “HOT” (higher) reference holes when the transmission reaches 180°F (82°C). Remember it’s best to examine the extent on the regular working temperature.CAUTION!
Be conscious that if the fluid temperature is under 50°F (10°C) it might not register on the dipstick. Do not add fluid till the temperature is elevated sufficient to provide an correct studying.7. Check for leaks. Release parking brake. To stop filth and water from coming into the transmission after checking or replenishing fluid, make sure that the dipstick cap is correctly resealed. It is regular for the dipstick cap to spring again barely from its totally seated place, so long as its seat stays engaged within the dipstick tube

MSRP $21.95/gallon.The really helpful combination is 50/50 ethylene-glycol and water. Never use pure antifreeze.The use of aluminum cylinder blocks, cylinder heads, and water pumps requires particular corrosion safety. Mopar® Antifreeze/Coolant, 5 Year/100,000 Mile Formula (MS-9769), or the equal ethylene-glycol base coolant with natural corrosion inhibitors (known as HOAT, for Hybrid Organic Additive Technology) is really helpful. This coolant affords one of the best engine cooling with out corrosion when blended with 50% ethylene-glycol and 50% distilled water to acquire a freeze level of -37°C (-35°F). If it loses colour (purple/orange) or turns into contaminated, drain, flush, and change with recent correctly blended coolant answer.Notes:Antifreeze combination should all the time be at the very least 44%, all climates 12 months spherical. Maximum safety (-90d) is supplied with a 68% combination safety.Do not change the thermostat for summer time or winter operation. If substitute is ever vital, set up ONLY the right sort thermostat. Other designs could lead to unsatisfactory cooling efficiency, poor fuel mileage, and elevated emissions.CAUTION: Use of Propylene-Glycol based mostly coolants just isn’t really helpful, as they supply much less freeze safety and much less corrosion safety.CAUTION: Mopar® Antifreeze/Coolant, 5 Year/100,000 Mile Formula (MS-9769) will not be blended with every other sort of antifreeze. Mixing of coolants aside from specified (non-HOAT or different HOAT), could lead to engine injury that will not be lined below the brand new automobile guarantee, and decreased corrosion safety.

CAUTION: Do not use coolant components which might be claimed to enhance engine cooling.

Avoid non-HOAT mixtures, similar to Prestone 50/50, that declare they can be utilized in autos of “all makes, all fashions”.
