Oil filter change

I just changed the filter at 1400 miles and cut it open to see what kind of debris was in there. Not too bad, but you can see some speckles of aluminum as expected. But the oil is clean and the filter looks to be doing its job. I'll probably do it again in another 1500 miles. Super simple. 24mm socket and a rag to grab the filter. Nice and neat.

Are you concerned about which oil Chrysler recommends?

"We recommend you use API Certified SAE 0W-20 Engine Oil, meeting the requirements of FCA Material Standard MS-6395 such as MOPAR, Pennzoil, and Shell Helix. Refer to your engine oil filler cap for correct SAE grade."

The last time I checked, Mobile 1 didn't meet the MS-6395 standard.

I've been using Mobil 1 for years. I also thought it was the best oil on the market. I've done some research into the 6395 standard, and it appears like Mopar, Shell and Pennzoil are the only ones meeting that standard. I think I'll use the Pennzoil Ultra Plantinum.
Likewise, I haven't changed my oil for a long time. I plan to have the dealer change mine.
