PostSubject: Which oil to use in my Scat Pack   April 21st 2016, 9:26 am

Hi guys,

i have 1700 miles now on my scat pack and i would like to do my first oil change.

The question is now which oil to use. I found these on amazon, which should i use?

Royal Purple 11484 API-Licensed SAE 0W-40 High Performance Synthetic Motor Oil - 1 qt.
http://www.amazon.com/Royal-Purple-11484-API-Licensed-Performance/dp/B002KD0M8A/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8

Castrol 03101 EDGE 0W-40 Synthetic Motor Oil - 5 Quart
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00JGQLZSU/ref=crt_ewc_img_dp_2?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER

Mobil 1 120760 Synthetic Motor Oil 0W-40, 5 Quart
http://www.amazon.com/Mobil-120760-Synthetic-Motor-0W-40/dp/B00HG76A9A/ref=pd_sim_263_1?ie=UTF8&dpID=51IrZkPE6pL&dpSrc=sims&preST=_AC_UL160_SR160%2C160_&refRID=1XZ7PA7ZMFMG3JN5PB66

As i am from Germany i always used Castrol in my cars and never had problems, but i don't know if there are any complains about using this oil in a big V8 Engine.

btw, is this the right oil filter?

Can i bring in my own oil for an oil change and anybody has suggestions where to do the oil change in arlington heights area?

Pennzoil Ultra Platinum is Mopars go to oil. It's SRT branded and works pretty well, been using it on the 1st gen 6.1 and I haven't had any oil squirter whine like I had when I brought the car using this oil. Any of those other synthetics work well too.
That filter is the Viper filter but will work on 6.4s as well.

Primarily I'm searching for an oil that's quiets down the tick... Heard of some people saying that the ticking is much better with different oil than that from the factory.

Originally i wanted to go with AMSOIL 0w40, but can't find a place to buy it.

I think i will go with the Castrol first, if that doesn't help, i'll try RP 0w40

You will need to sign up as a preferred customer, and order it from the website. Comes petty quickly. I think it is $16 a year to be a preferred customer, but you will get discounted prices then, I believe it was about $8 a quart of the 0w40.

I changed the oil to Castrol Edge 0W40 and the SRT oilfilter, after that I experienced another ticking noise in lower RPMs (1300 to 1900), went to the dealer and they said they hear nothing... but it was clearly hearable, after some minutes driving the mechanic heard it but said it´s normal.

I did some test driving and i figured out that the noise isn´t there when i start up the car until the oil temp reaches 158F. As soon as the oil reaches 201F the noise goes away again and starts at 210F again and doesn´t go away anymore.

Today i changed the oil again to AMSOIL Signature 0W40, this is a certified oil for the 392. I still have the same problem, but it seems that the "normal" Hemi tick is a little quieter now.

I tried to record the noise, but it´s not hearable in the engine compartment, i´m just able to hear it inside the car while driving. As soon as i open the window, i don´t hear it anymore.
