The 07 I have had for two years and 25000 miles. My 06 I had for 4 years and 65000 miles. My father has had his for 5 years and 30000 miles. We all use that oil.

I have used the same oil in every ford I have owned, including an F150, a Fusion, a Focus, and an Escape. Yeah, me and my family like Fords lol. You will not have a problem. Its not like you are racing right? If you were constantly pushing the engine at max than I would say full synthetic. All the big name oils are overpriced and are over the top for a daily driver.

1st time changing oil. If using Royal Purple synthetic, do you have to use a specific filter? Also, do you use 5 quarts total?

Great thanks! The repair manual referenced 4 quarts, but I drained more than 4 and thought that couldn't be right. I have a V8 GT.

Anyone ever use 10w-30 when 10w-20 is not available in synthetic?

---------- Post added at 03:12 PM ---------- Previous post was at 03:11 PM ----------

I meant 5W-30 if 5W-20 is not available in synthetic?

Since I live in central Florida and the summer is very hot, I opted to use Royal Purple 5W-30. I had already purchased a Mobil 1 oil filter, so went with it. Next time, I will go with the recommended 5W-20 and use a Ford foil filter. My car is not the daily driver, but I want to use the best products. If anyone has thoughts on what is the "best," I will go out of my way to find it next time.

There have been several people on here using 5W-30 with zero problems. But don't change it beyond that, it can mess with the variable cam timing VCT. I've always used K&N filters and never had a problem. But Mobil 1 products are great and problem free. The biggest thing is changing them at the right intervals.
Also check your levels often.

I'm really shocked no one brought up castrol oil. Their full synthetic (edge / syntec) is top grade oil. It out performs Mobil one in stress and endurance testing, is cheaper than Mobil, and has served me and my 3 mustangs exceptionally well. I just got royal for cheap the other day so I'll use it next, but I won't hesitate to go back to castrol a all. It definitely holds up to the beating better than the Mobil 1 stuff.

I heard that once you change to 5 30 you shouldn't go back to 5 20
Is this true or was it don't go back from synthetic oil
I have a good idea but why would you go back as forth

Both of my F150s and my Mustang have all used Motorcraft 5w-20 and only when I had my cams installed did I have Mobil 1 put in it since thats all they had in the shop. There is nothing wrong with Motorcraft, its cheaper than mobil 1 and Ford recommends it.
