Let us know how that Q&A turns out there! The service managers that I contacted concerning this issue apparently were clueless about it, would definitely want it in writing for sure.
HOT ROD ON
For all practical purposes it's probably a non-issue for me. When getting a diesel Ram a couple of years ago, I couldn't help but notice that it has a 15,000-mile/6-month rule for its oil changes.
Well, there's no way I'd let the oil go that far before the first change, so it got it at under 2,000 miles. I also knew that I wouldn't change it every six months, just because, and asked my friend/FCA contact/dealer about it.
Maybe because he knows that I'm anal about vehicle maintenance he said not to worry, he'd take care of things should something happen.
At this point, by the rules, that pickup should've had it's fourth change by now, despite only having a bit over 8,000 miles on it. It has had two.
Will it die a horrible premature death because of it? Probably not. Would it have benefited the engine in any way to have changed the oil twice as many times? Most likely not.
But I'm curious now to find out what FCA's official verbiage is. Have they put a limit on how long an oil change can take?
I also can't help but wonder how the oil in a Porsche Turbo S can live both longer and go farther without going bad.
Guess I should be glad there's no rule saying I have to wash my car every six months, too.
