I searched this spec. but found nothing on it.

Wife's new Pacifica (4.0L V6) requires this MS 6395 spec. I have a garage full of SM rated Quaker State dino, Havoline dino (old recipe), Valvoline DuraBlend, as well as two varities of Quaker State synthetic. Only one (one of the Q.S. synthtics) says it meets this requirement.

What about this MS 6395? Am I right in assuming that since the other oils don't say anything about it, they don't meet it? Or is it a given that they do? Thanks gents.

-Scott

Castrol GTX does as well. Just do a search for the spec on Google. It looks like there are several others you can easily spot.

I was looking at the same thing, here is what I know so far. I am sure there are more, but have not generated a full list yet.
This is for 5w-20, 5w-30 and 10w-30 weights.

Valvoline Durablend
Valvoline Conventional
Pennzoil
Pennzoil Platinum
Mobil 1
Mobil 1 EP
Mobil 5000
Mobil 7500


Note: Castol GTX and Syntec state they they "meet the fill requiremnts of Ford, Honda and Chrysler but while it directly references the ford spec, it does not specifically state the 6395 Chrysler spec, or the honda for that matter.

Thanks guys. Nice work Herdfan. I too had resorted to looking at each website to see what meets it. Have you come across some that are different letters following the numbers, like 6395N or 6395M? That too threw me for a loop.

I have, bet I can tell from reading on here and a couple of Dodge and Jeep sites, the M/N indicates revisions to the cold temp. flow requirements.

I normally am not so picky about oil, but my 2007 4.7 Jeep XK is one of the Chryco vehicles that went from the 5w-30 to the 5w-20 recommendation after the 2006 model year without any changes to the engine. This concerns me a little, so I figured I should stay within the 6395 if I am going to run the 5w-20, since I really do not think it is thick enough for that V8. I am running PP 5w-30 right now, but will run 5w-20 in the near future.

I know Castrol GTX 5w-20 meets it, their web site states it, I also believe that chevron and havoline 5w-20's also meet it.

I think just about any oil in any 5w20, 5w30 ,10w30 and some 10w40, meet this spec. I think its one of the older, easier to meet specs that there is.

When I first got my 04 Neon I was looking into this heavily. I actually got the latest spec from Mopar and it was with one exception was LINE for LINE GF-4. So SL GF-3 with MS-6395 was oil that met GF-4 before it was finalized.

Just before the release of the 5000,7500, and 15000 Mobil stuff they had a reformulated Drive clean that was SL GF-3 MS-6395. One of the few at the time. Then once I new it was GF-4 which came out in force just after that, it is not worth the time to worry about any more.

So get yourself any SM GF-4 oil and be done with it.
