Update #1 August 2016: Chrysler now suggests 5W-40 for EcoDiesel Engines
Update # 2 August 2016: We now offer a substitute oil filter for the EcoDiesel engine
Important Note: 5W-30 motor oil is no longer suggested for EcoDiesel engines.
We are pleased to announce that Oildepot has now has a motor oil for the Dodge Ram 1500 and Jeep Grand Cherokee with the 3.0L EcoDiesel engine ready for shipment in Canada and the United States. The new version of AMSOIL European Formula 5W-30 Improved ESP Synthetic Motor Oil is available immediately in US gallon containers only. This product is formulated to meet the special Chrysler MS-11106 and ACEA C-3 specifications required for this engine.
For pricing on this brand new engine oil for EcoDiesel motors, contact us using the form on this page or call us at 1-800-748-5781. We will be happy to show you how to get this product at the best possible price in North America. We ship from warehouses located in Canada and the US, so we can get orders to you fast with low shipping rates.
Here are the new product codes:
- AEL1G-EA (single 3.78L jug)
- AEL1G-CA (case of four 3.78L jugs)
We hope to have an oil filter available for the EcoDiesel engine in the near future. The Dodge/Mopar oil filter is ridiculously expensive. We now offer a high-quality alternative at a sane price (see update at top of page).
