Went longer on the Pennzoil Platinum 0W-20 HM. I think it looks good. WIX filter was used for this change. FRAM Ultra went on next for the 7.5k run. The first analysis scared me. I'm happy with the way its gone since I switched to Pennzoil Platinum HM 0W-20.

Over the life of this vehicle have you had many mechanical issues?

Probably more than average though some was my own doing. Altinater, 3rd water pump (my fault), battery, exhausted leak (broken bolt), The transfer case switch got stuck in Neutral because my wife kept putting her purse on the electronic button amd the spring broke. They redesigned the switch to the point I had to replace the Center Console Bezel to install the new larger switch. And the PCV valve went out around 100k miles but that was only like a 5min fix, and the oil filler cap failed (oil was. Coming up through the cap seal). This is the first High Mileage vehicle I have ever owned so i am not sure if that's above average for my miles or not. We like it and it's never left us sit anywhere. It took a while to get oil consumption under control.

Your engine seems happy. But tbn already 2.5 and Blackstone is predicting 10k runs? Near 6000 SUV with MDS lifters, they shouldn't be looking for extended intervals.

What oil was your other sample?

The first sample is Valvoline Full Synthetic High Mileage 5W-20, the rest are Pennzoil Platinum High Mileage 0W-20. This engine definitely like the Pennzoil better.

In regards to your 3 water pumps... that’s about average for your mileage. The issue was so bad FCA extended the warranty on 2013-2017 models to 7 years/unlimited mileage.

Mine failed at 57k, 3 days after I brought it home from the dealer. 2nd one made it till at least 105k when I traded it in. But mine also has the broken exhaust manifold studs.

There is a lot of variation in the wear Fe. The other metals are low enough to not concern ourselves with and very steady; ignore them.
Regarding the Fe, the first sample was at 8ppm/1k miles; that's a bit high to be honest.
Second sample at 4ppm/1k miles.
Third sample at 3ppm/1k miles.

Is the first sample an anomaly? Don't know this particular engine well enough. More samples need to be taken. These engines (not all of them, but many of them) use that multi-displacement fuel saving concept. I am not intimately familiar with how the system works, but I presume it shuts down cylinders and somehow alters cam/valve actions. I know we've lost many cams to this design at the SO where I work. It's a known phenomenon. The reason I bring this up is because your driving patterns and behaviors will affect the wear in Fe. More steady state driving will actually make the fuel management system shut down cylinders more often. This is not unique to the 5.7L Hemis; I see clear evidence of escalated Fe in many of the Vortec GM engines that use a similar valve deactivation system. However, the Vortect engines don't seem to eat cams like the Hemis do. Some engine designs with reasonably simple architecture have very low wear rates. Both of my 4.6L 2v engines in our Grand Marquis have wear rate of Fe 1ppm/1k miles or so. But they have very simple designs that don't use any fancy tech, and therefor have reasonably steady lube system performance.

My point is that the 8ppm/1k miles is high; the others a bit more "normal" for that Hemi design. Suggesting 10k mile OCIs is not out of the question, but I'd ease up there and not jump right to it. Work you way up methodically using UOAs as your guide.


Also, the water pumps are a consumable replaced on these Hemi engines at a rate far faster than many other brands/types, IMO. But that's a side topic not related to lube AFAIK.


The act of preventative maintenance, in and of itself, is FAR MORE important than brand/grade/base choices among lubes and filters.
- under maintaining something is akin to abuse/neglect; that can kill equipment by shortening the lifespan
- over maintaining something has never been proven to be anything but a waste of time and money

The first sample was a different brand of oil. Thoes amounts concerned me too but the Pennzoil has been much better.

You could try 5W30 a slightly thicker lube will likely cause your iron numbers to drop and will not affect MDS.


make the inside of your engine oil cap white.
don't use.
