Normally I use a Mopar oil filter but I stopped at Walmart yesterday for oil and a filter and surprisingly the K&N was $1.33 less than the Mopar filter.
Just an FYI.

Great statistics RIP. Bet nobody else on here has that amount of experience with another brand of oil filter.9 times out of 10 when I buy a filter it's a FRAM for $3-4. Been using them 40+ years and I'm still waiting for that first problem that some seem to have with them.
You can use any filter you want on 3.3l, 3.8l or 4.0l engines, but not on 3.6l engines.9 times out of 10 when I buy a filter it's a FRAM for $3-4. Been using them 40+ years and I'm still waiting for that first problem that some seem to have with them.
100% correct.There's a reason most of the dealerships have tsb's on how to deal with customer reports of engine noise. First step is to look for and replace aftermarket oil filters with oem to see if issue resolves. They don't always, but have certainly been known to cause issues. Aftermarket filters are made to work with so many diffeent engines that it makes me nervous. I'd rather get the one that is made for my engine specs exactly.
Funny story on our Hyundai Sonata. I took it to the dealer for an oil change a few months back. When i got it home I looked over the paperwork and saw that they used a premium guard brand filter. Cost of filter was listed at like $12. I took car back and said I wanted OEM filter not aftermarket. They said this is an "oem equivilant". They changed it out for oem though without issue. I then walked to parts dept and asked for price on oem filter and it was $10. So they are charging more for the aftermarket "oem equivilant". I'm sure they get them much cheaper but make more profit on them. Even Chrysler dealers do this with the mopar marelli brand. If I want aftermarket I'll go to oil change place in town and save a couple hours of time going to dealership!
As I stated before, I got that code but low/high oil pressures were correct, I drove many miles pulling a trailer without any problems. Finally, a Mexican Chrysler dealer replaced the filter for a OE filter and problem solved. A USA Chrysler dealer wanted to replace the oil pump.As wrong as an oil filter can theoretically go, I think people get too defensive about their preferred choice. OEM is a good choice, sure. They aren't going to put filters in warrantied engines that are gonna increase risk of a failure they have to pay for. But are they really safer than everything else? We don't really know they are the only good choice. Evidence is really anecdotal. From what I've seen anyway. Someone posts a bad review with pics on Amazon: 1 failure. People are a lot more likely to provide feedback when their one particular specimen did poorly. I've had 6 K&Ns in the van now with no failures, but I can only post one review on Amazon. Look around, you can probably find a review of an OEM filter with the same failure.
Welcome to the forum.
Check your pressures on both, low and high RPM's, if OK, then, don't worry.
On my case, I was using Wix filters, no problems gor many changes but one day, right after oil and filter change I got that code along With the C.E.L. I ran it like that for many, many miles, until I visited a dealer in Mexico, they told me that I had the wtong brand of filter, replaced it at not charge and few miles later the C.E.L. banished.
Filter fixed my issue.
I just had the exact problem on my 2012 GC Crew model with the 3.6. I did replace the oil pressure sensor but ultimately replacing the filter with the Mopar branded one corrected the issue for me.
Sometimes it would throw the vehicle into somewhat of a "limp mode". Not the stuck in 2nd gear limp mode but one where the engine is not allowed to auto downshift and also not allow the engine to get over 3500 rpm. Pulling over and turning the engine off for a second would reset this.
This is due to the "possible" oil pressure issue from the P06dd code and the engine trying to preserve itself. The oil pump is a two stage setup and its my understanding that the first stage is up to 3500 rpm and thats why it will not allow it to go over that rpm. Not allowing it to auto downshift is just another way to keep the rpm's from spiking.
