Can we get a complete list of currently known 0W-20 full synthetic motor oils that meet or exceed Chrysler MS-6395 specification for our Pacificas? Also, which oil(s) are you personally using?

I believe the following are MS-6395 specified:

Pennzoil Ultra Platinum
Pennzoil Platinum
Mobil 1 Super Synthetic
Quaker State Ultimate Durability
Valvoline Full Synthetic Advanced

I have confirmed that Castrol Edge 0W-20 is not conforming to MS-6395. The Amazon page says it is but this official document from Castrol says otherwise: https://msdspds.castrol.com/bpglis/FusionPDS.nsf/Files/73A258BA225A396680257D03006D47BE/$File/EDGE%20US%20PDS.pdf

Hoping many of you can contribute to this list.

Line 3 should be Mobil Super Synthetic, Mobil 1 is a different line and does not have the certification even though popular opinion considers it better.

Too pricey!!!

My intent in line 3 is Super Synthetic. I just assumed Mobil 1 was part of it. But I mean Super Synthetic primarily.

Great thread, didnt realize that I needed a special oil. So far everything is correct but I wanted to add more to the list:
LiquidMoly: Special Tec AA 0W-20 (https://products.liqui-moly.com/special-tec-aa-0w-20-3.html)

Havoline ProDS 0W-20 (https://cglapps.chevron.com/sdspds/PDSDetailPage.aspx?docDataId=490665&docFormat=PDF)
Havoline Ultra 0W-20 (https://cglapps.chevron.com/msdspds/PDSDetailPage.aspx?docDataId=401657&docFormat=PDF)

Now if we would have a thread on the list of oil filters recommended for our van...

It would be either pretty short (Mopar only) or pretty long, depending on your definition of "high quality."

This manufacturer’s engines have a full-flow type disposable oil filter. Use a filter of this type for replacement. The quality of replacement filters varies considerably. Only high quality filters should be used to assure most efficient service. Mopar engine oil filters are high quality oil filters and are recommended.

Pennzoil Ultra Platinum 0W-20 SN Motor Oil ...at Walmart retail is $52.37 for 5 gal.
and the Platinum is only $22.68 5 gal. That's less than half the price.
I believe both are MS-6395.
I called the closest dealer they said they use Pennzoil Synthetic, did not say which one Ultra Platinum or just Ultra.
Pennzoil of course says Ultra Platinum.
Just called my dealer and the first oil change free! And they use Mobil one.
I assume they buy bulk Platinum and not the ultra otherwise it would be over $100.00 for an oil change.
The filter at the dealer is probably mopar standard, however iv'e found that wix and Fran make a synthetic filter
FRAM Ultra Synthetic Oil Filter, XG1166 at $1197, which they recommend for Full synthetic at their website as does Wix WL10010XP
at about $14.00.

https://www.fram.com/products/consumer-products/oil-filters/
WIX Filters - Products Catalog by Application
I'm sure both are better than the Standard Mopar or Fran. The Fran XG1166 is the 3 best filter from their standard.
$10 for 5 quart and $2 for 1 quart bottle rebate at Pennzoil here

Any advice or comments?

I use the Mobil in mine and a oem mopar filter. Utilizing the oem mopar filter for oil changes would not allow FCA to deny claims is problems arose down the road for flow problems.

I agree with this...if you use the mopar brand filter they can't deny a claim if any issues arise down the road. However, just like others stated regular Mobil 1 does not meet MS-6395 so there's that.

Coming from a Dealership technician, I have yet to see Chrysler deny a warranty Claim based on what oil is used (unless it is clear that lack of maintenance is noticed). I have seen issues with the cam phasers (mostly with gas models) that control variable valve timing. Since oil pressure is needed for correct operation, it seems the first thing to try for a fix is an oil change. Especially if there is no record of a dealership oil change. Reason for that is the technician isn't sure what oil is in it. I'd say that oil weight is important and synthetic is important. Brand, not so much.
