    Rest the nose of the pliers on the intake manifold, as in the picture. I just changed it yesterday, but in the next change I'll go to 5w As the 5w notates it's winter weight, so at colder temperatures, what are the characteristics of the oil. It will be hard to push home, so get a socket just big enough to fit in the adapter. Remove all tools from the engine bay.

    Jeep Wrangler L Pentastar Engine Oil Change , 13, 14, 15, 16

    I find the oil discussion threads pretty interesting, especially pertaining to the JK. As we all know the JK current recommended oil weight is 5w, however, there have been multiple claims that switching to a "thicker" weight oil will reduce things such as engine noise, engine knocking, and oil consumption. So, did you switch to a thicker weight oil 5w, 10w?

    Do you use different weight oils between winter and summer, if so which weights? What spurred your change, any issues so far? Have you noticed a decrease in engine noise, knocking or oil consumption? How many miles do you have on your JK? I know a lot of people say that the Lucas isn't needed and is a waste but I've seen it work miracles so I keep it in my motor as insurance.

    I'm going to 10w on this change just to see what happens but I've dabble with 10w before and haven't noticed any mileage difference. I've never had any knock at startup so I'm not sure if 10w will be any better or just the same as 5w Also I've never had consumption issues with this motor but a horrible rear main seal leak on another vehicle which is what prompted me to do Lucas. It made the leak not as bad, so I'm hoping it will hide any minor defects in the 3.

    I will say this- on 5w that the delaer gave me you would hear some clack from under the hood and it seems to be gone since I've went to my own choice of oil and weight. Pennzoil 5w with 1qt of Lucas Oil Stabilizer: I would think that down in VA with a 5w vs a 10w you probably won't see much difference.

    As the 5w notates it's winter weight, so at colder temperatures, what are the characteristics of the oil. So, at colder temperatures the 5w will be thinner and in theory should lubricate all of your engine components faster. I've never though about running the Lucas Oil Stabilizer. Did you just an an additional quart of the Stabilizer on top of your 6 quarts of oil. Or is it 5 quarts of oil plus 1 quart of oil stabilizer?

    Yeah, the weather prolly won't change much with the oil here but I'm hoping to make a trip to either Michigan or Kentucky for the snow so it may make a small difference there. I have noticed that the factory oil pan doesn't drain out all of the oil, so people doing their own oil may only need 5.

    I know this because I let my oil drain from operating temp for a good hour and then came back while the motor was still a little warm to remove my pan and there was still oil in the pan.

    My 10w vs 5w argument made no sense, sorry. You want a lighter weight oil for the winter time so that it will splash around more easily. A thick cold oil isn't going to move around the motor so easily. I might as well as chime in for my JKU. I purchased my JKU with about 18, miles on the odometer, right now I am right around 43, miles.

    As soon as I purchased the JK I did an oil change and started running Mobil-1 5w and I have been running that weight until yesterday. Using 5w I didn't have any issues at start-up, engine noise was a little louder once at operating temperature though. The engine did consume about a quart of oil every 1, to 1, miles; so keeping an eye on the engine was key. I swapped over to 10w, staying with the same brand Mobil Engine noise does seem reduced however it is a little too early to form a conclusive opinion.
