I just checked with Daimler and there's no such thing as a 229.4 engine oil spec. Amsoil AFL 5W-40 claims to meet: Daimler Chrysler 229.3, 229.4, 229.5 There's a 229.3 and 229.5, but there's no such thing as 229.4 [I dont know]

Hello Guys, I just checked the Amsoil website and looked up 'Product Information' for the 5W-40 European oil, they have removed the 229.4 spec reference. They reference the 229.3 & 229.5 specs but not the 229.4 . Thought you would want to know.

The real issue is why 229.4 was ever put on there in the first place. [Roll Eyes]

It was confirmed by a non-Amsoil Site Supporter/Amsoil dealer that 229.4 is a non-existent spec after talking with Daimler Chrysler. It's not even a page # unless you consider 229.1, 229.3, and 229.5 as page #s rather than specs.
