Oil burning 3.8? Has anyone tried MOPAR CCC?
I bought a 07 Rubicon Unlimited with 39k about 1.5 years ago. During oil changes I did notice that I would be about a quart down, every 5k. About 8 week ago I noticed increased consumption, about 1 quart every 2k. I started to do some research... noticed lots of complaints about this issue. Obviously a trend with the 3.8 in the JK's (or in general). I tried a new PCV valve... quick easy thing to try... but It didn't seem to help my oil consumption issue (I still noticed consumption after 500 miles). I kept digging....
I found a thread out there about the issue and one possible fix that I didn't read about in these forums... MOPAR CCC (Combustion Chamber Cleaner). about 9$ at the dealer. I read a few different ways to use it (seems everyone has their own version)... I used 2 cans (two applications, not 2 cans at once).
I don't want to be premature, but after 2000k miles, I have 0 quarts of oil consumption. My gut tells me I will find some oil consumption after 5000k if I let it go that long.....
Either way, the MOPAR CCC seems to have solved my oil consumption issue on my 3.8 so far! After 1500k, I changed my plugs, the stock plugs looked ashy, gray-white. No oil on the plugs, but they did look old (glad I replaced them before the 100k mark).
Lots of you-tube vids of people using the CCC on other vehicles. Someone else should give this a try to see if the results are reproducible.
