Oil change problem with 2014

I just changed my oil last evening. Advance auto did not have the 2014 Wrangler in their system, so they gave me the oil filter from a 2013. After I installed the new filter and oil, the low oil pressure light came on with the check engine. I drove it around the block, once the oil pressure came up the oil pressure light went off. I noticed that the stock filter was different on the one end than the one I had bought. I put the old filter back on and now the oil pressure is good, but the check engine light is on still. Advance auto cannot read a 2014 yet, so I was wondering what should I do or is there a trick to reset the engine light.

Thanks in advance

The 14 has a different oil filter. Any code reader should be able to reset the MIL. Go to the dealer and get the correct filter or find a better parts store.

2014 and 2013s are totally different when it comes to oil filter. If you don't have the procal or flashpaq, I'd suggest disconnecting the battery for a while to see if that does the trick.

supposedly it was because some diesels used very similar filters and O rings so they made a small change to the parts meaning they only have to stock one oil filter now.

doesnt make much sense to me, people still need to change their oil in 2013's, perhaps it is to streamline things at the factory.

2014's have a different filter than the 2013's. Auto parts stores don't have them yet but you can get one from the dealer for about $8. The new filters have an anti-drain mechanism my guess to address noisy valvetrain start-ups on 2012's and 2013's.

I buy the '14 filters off ebay. usually a six pack is a good deal. You can get the '12/13 filters from Wix. Free shipping at $50.

In regard to the 2014 Wrangler, 3.6L Pentastar engine:

Chrysler/Jeep Oil filter part number is
68191349AA

(Note: No aftermarket oil filters to replace the
68191349AA are available as of today 11/23/13)

Jeep recommends you use SAE 5W-20 Engine Oil, such as MOPAR, Pennzoil, and
Shell Helix.
- 6 quarts when changing oil filter
(5.7 Liters)

24mm oil filter cover removal
13mm socket for drain plug

For Fumoto Oil Drain Valve if you plan on installing same, you want an F106 .

Note: Do be sure to have the oil filter cap removed / filter out when you are actively draining the oil pan. IF you do not, all oil may not drain completely down into drain pan and out.


Resetting the change oil indicator:
With the engine off turn the key to the run position but do not start the engine. Depress the gas pedal all the way to the floor 3 times within the first 10 seconds of turning on the key. The change oil indicator should not return until the next interval.

Yes, check engine resets. Hey, I hope you went and got a refund from Advance Auto for the incorrect oil filter they sold you... (?)

Even if I had trashed that dirty filter, I'd be back to the store getting a refund. No receipt, go to the Manager and he still should hear your complaint and refund the $.

I would never mention to your Dealer, that you installed the wrong oil filter and then actually ran the engine. Because, that maybe detrimental, to your engine warranty, if a oil related failure was to occur in the future!!!!!!!!!

^ This! I'd be driving to the dealer in a different vehicle to pick up a filter and then swapping it out and returning the wrong filter.

+1 Get a filter from the dealer ASAP, in fact I wouldn't drive it anymore until you do. Take another set of wheels to the dealer to get your filter. As mentioned above don't tell the dealer you put the wrong filter on. Get your $$ from AAP.

2014 Oil Filter is different

I just had the same problem with my 2014 at 3000 miles. I took it to a quick-lube place. Immediately, the Check Engine and Oil Pressure lights lit up. They verified that the oil was full, and check and cleared the code (they came back) but they didn't know what else to do. Oil pressure fluctuated between 2 PSI at idle, and 25 PSI while driving.

I drove a few miles directly to the dealer. The dealer completed a new oil/filter change, cleared the codes, and all is well.

A call to the quick-lube store verified that they were still using 2013 data for the filter. (They're giving me a free oil change.) I got the feeling that the dealer hadn't seen this issue yet either. I'm out $30 for the diagnostic at the dealership, and some time.....but, lesson learned.

JHFC! Every dealer in the land is now running LOF deals that compete with El Cheapo service centers. Why TF would you go anywhere else and suffer incorrect parts? Many dealers are now even throwing in the first several services for free, sweetening the deal.

One reason is the wise vehicle owner stays clear of the stealership unless there is no other way.. Also, did you ever stop to think why the dealership is trying to get you in their door for such services.

Doing an oil change on a Wrangler 2014 take but a few minutes.. Easy to do and next to no mess. You also save $ doing it yourself.

I worked for a dealer for ten years and they along with the other dealers I knew used high school kids on the lube rack. Problems and errors were rampant. At least the quick change places have a training program and work in teams verifying each other's work. Stay far away from a dealerships lube rack if you can at all help it.

How in the hell do you screw up a oil change? rofl

Anything simple can be easily screwed up! Especially by the dipshits on the lube rack. They are there because they are dipshits!

I go to the dealer for my LOF as long as the vehicle is under warranty, that way if there is a problem I have proof I followed the recommended schedule. Do not trust independent oil and lube centers. Too many times over the years I have heard and have had the experience of these places using incorrect viscosity's, over filling, under filling, charging for a filter they do not replace, stripping the drain plug...... While I am at the dealership I take the opportunity to ask questions. Also if you get the tires rotated mark them with a black sharpie so you can make sure they did it properly.

Trust me there are a lot of people who are qualified to F-up an oil change. My GF's GC is still under warranty, I change her oil. I save the receipts for the oil and filter, along with the flap with the filter part # from the box. I'd rather not have the dealer put whatever bulk oil was on sale in her GC. Some people might think that's over the top, but that's OK. I have the peace of mind knowing it was done right. I just did it the other day for her, she might have to get an oil change done while I'm deployed, hopefully they don't f F-it up.

And who do you think Quick Lube, Pep Boys, Autozone, etc. employ, the best and the brightest? Not hardly.

I have a 2013 Wrangler and a 2014 Grand, both with 3.6. Fortunately I noticed the filter difference right away after I bought 6 2013 style filters at only $6 apiece from Pep Boys. I'm wondering if the whole 2014 oil filter assembly will work on a "13"
I may pull them both in the garage and see or try through my Jeep factory connections. They changed it for a reason (we know what) and if they kept it simple, hmmm. Rich

Good idea. The 14 has an anti drain back valve, probably because of cold start noise issues/complaints because of the filter letting oil drain back into the block.

We have free lifetime oil and filter changes at our dealer, so they will be doing this service for us all the time. They've already changed it 3x in the first 5,000 miles, with another one coming up in a few more weeks.

I am not worried about them messing anything up. If they do they will be fixing it for free. My Chrysler car has a free lifetime oil change deal plus free tire rotation with the same dealership and I've been taking it there for 6 years. The only problem I've ever had was they once broke the top of the dipstick off and they had to move it to a regular service bay hoist to extract it. No big deal and it didn't cost me anything.

Good information. I just traded my 2013 for the 2014 Rubicon.

Used my local Dodge dealer for Dodge diesel oil changes. One time they came out with some colored trans fluid and said it needed changed. Told them I thought they changed it 6 mo. earlier. Looked in PC and said no we never changed, and I say okay change. Paid and went to truck and looked through past receipts and their was the receipt for trans fluid they said I'd never had done. Took in back in and got a Red Face from them as they were caught cheating me. I really don't know if they changed it either time, just charged me. Got my refund and never went back.

So go ahead and get you free oil changes from your dealer. Not Me! I change my oil and save receipts. Better than dealing with crooked service writers and dipshits.
