No, that's too much shaking. Sooner rather than later the problem will manifest itself through a worn bearing somewhere and a leaking seal.

Don't even think about getting a buy out price from the dealership for your Jeep. They'll just scam you into a few thousand dollars. You see, they know too well that it costs practically nothing to...

203F thermostats on these engines. The temp you see is perfectly normal, especially since engine is brand new, - extra break in friction for at least first 1000 miles.

I think you are making a very fair point. Although I wouldn't say MS-6395 is a joke after personally comparing the numbers, it does skip over some of the requirements ACEA A1/B1 includes, and in some...

I definitely am not going to argue about MDS operation relative to oil grade. If higher grade oil triggers a CEL it's a fact, no argument there. I just wish I knew more about it.
