A new multi-functional, heavy-duty, arctic engine oil called synthetic multi-purpose lubricant
(OE/HDO-SMPL-I) is now replacing the old OEA-30.
SMPL-I is formulated to improve low temperature starting and protect components when engine temperature heats up after vehicle startup. It also costs less than the old OEA-30.
vehicles, with the exception of the two vehicles listed below, currently using OEA-30 should switch to OE/HDO-SMPL-I as soon as possible.
Two Vehicle Exceptions
- The M88A1/A2 recovery vehicle will continue to use the old OEA-30 in its transmission/final drive.
- The JLTV will continue to use a special 0W-30 fluid in its hydraulic/suspension system.
These quantities of OE/HDO-SMPL-I oil are now available:
