Hard to find in stores. I wonder if the MS-6395 oils are low or mid-SAPS oils.The owner manual for 2.4L engine reads; 0W-20 engine oils that are API certified and meet the requirements of Chrysler Material Standard MS-6395.
Pennzoil Platinum meets Chrysler MS-6395 requirements. Shell Helix also is listed in the manual. Hope this helps.
Actually, it's made from Group IV (polyalphaolefin) blended with Group III (hydrocracked minderal oil) nase stock. Pennzoil Platinum 0W-20 has an HTHS of about 2.6, if I remember correctly. Should be fine if the engine and thus the oil does not get very hot. For off-roading, the car packed with people and cargo, mountain and desert driving, I would want an oil with a higher HTHS.I found the Pennzoil 0W-20 Walmart. It's their Platinum full synthetic oil, (made from natural gas). I
have used it in other engines with no problems.
I downloaded the German Renegade manual and checked what oil requirements they list. They list 0W-30 ACEA C2, API SN for all engines. So that's a mid-SAPS, fuel-conserving oil spec. As is typical, in Europe the manufacturer recommends a slightly higher viscosity oil due to higher speeds driven and higher oil temperatures. In the US, due to CAFE, we are to use the more fuel conserving 0W-20 oils.
Because I do think low HTHS oils are chose for the sake of maximizing fuel economy over engine protection. Essentially, under high load and high oil temperatures, a low HTHTS oil simply cannot protect as well as an oil with a higher HTHS. The questions is when you reach the critical point. Keeping the oil cool, with an additional oil cooler is one way to ensure proper lubrication at high oil temperatures. Achoosing an oil with a higher HTHS is another solution.The MOPAR SAE 0W-20 is the recommended oil for all operating temperatures. So why wouldn't you want to use the genuine oil recommended by the builder of the engine?
Do you want to know if all RP engine oils meet MS-6395? Off the top of my head, no.Does anyone know if Royal Purple is MS-6395? I'm pretty sure it's Group IV stock.
In most Europe Union countries most Jeep Renegade sales are with diesel engineSeriously? What do they have other than the 1.4T? A n/a 1.4, and a at least one diesel?
